60s would be a stretch. I am pretty sure we're done with 70s until late April maybe even until May.

Models starting to get consistant with the trough setup in East. Latest GFS has a steady ridge out west and a trough in place for the East for next 2 weeks. Night lows in 30s. Day highs barely passing 55 a few times but mostly 40s.(Which is normal)
20s for lows for northern States in NorthEast.

I think lows will be below. and Highs will be normal. Will April put a stop to the 12 straight months of above normal??

Litchfield County keep eyes open for Wednesday & Thursday. Not a lot of moisture so light stuff but they think accumulating for above 2000'.

From NWS Albany.


.LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/...

A CLIPPER LIKE SYSTEM WILL MOVE EAST-SOUTHEAST THROUGH THE GREAT LAKES AND ACROSS THE REGION WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT. COLD ENOUGH DURING THE EARLY MORNING HOURS FOR ANY PRECIPITATION THAT DOES OCCUR TO FALL AS SNOW SHOWERS IN SOME AREAS.

ON THURSDAY...BEFORE THE SYSTEM DEPARTS THE REGION ...THE LOW STALLS AND STARTS TO DEEPEN SOUTH OF CAPE COD. THIS ALLOWS MOISTURE AND COLD AIR TO WRAP BACK INTO STORM AND PRECIPITATION TO CONTINUE ON THURSDAY. WITH 850 MB TEMPS IN THE -2 TO -5C RANGE...PRECIPITATION IN THE VALLEYS WILL LIKELY BE RAIN ON THURSDAY...BUT ELEVATIONS ABOVE 2000 FT MSL COULD SEE ACCUMULATING SNOW. QPF IS FORECAST TO BE
AROUND A QUARTER OF AN INCH SO ONLY LIGHT SNOW ON THE HILL TOPS. HIGHS ON THURSDAY ARE FORECAST TO RANGE FROM THE 30S TO 50S.

LOL, I did see 71 in the 10 day forecast, I've got my fingers crossed. I sure hope you are wrong about no more 70's until the end of next month. It's so chilly today that the heat has kicked on a few times.

Did you guys hear about the accumulating hail storm? Have we ever had any hail accumulate up this way? Or a better question is, whats the record for accumulating hail?

Latest GFS: Shows the Clipper on Wednesday which will pull down the trough and cold air. Then the trough stays put for a week.



Then for April 1st it has a storm exiting North Carolina and OTS with a possible Norlun Trough setup for us on the 2nd. Cold air will be in place. What if that storm shifts West a little towards the coast?

40's are not normal highs for april or late march in almost all of Connecticut. 54 degrees is normal high for april 1st at windsor locks. By the 15th, normal high is 60.

LOL! It doesn't take much to get a lone 70 degree day in mid april in CT. Temperatures have a tendency to swing wildly at the battle between cold and warm air finally finishes off the cold air. Unless we get in a really FREAKY cold below normal pattern, it's almost a certainy will see a 70 degree day before May.
