15 Fire departments were on the scene of a Brush Fire.

EAST HADDAM—
Firefighters from several towns spent hours Monday night battling a brush fire at Devils Hopyard State Park that was still burning early Tuesday.

Officials from the State Police and State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection said the fire was burning at Devils Hopyard State Park in the area of Jones Hill and Foxtown roads

Could the rubber band finally be snapping the other way?

The trough in the East senario has been constantly shown lately for after end of March.

Here is the latest GFS Temp anomalies. Its only one run so lets see if it keeps showing this 10 degrees below average senario.

CT here is minus 6-8 below normal which would mean mostly mid 40s as the average (Highs/Lows middle) beginning of April.

It's too bad Sikorsky started records in 1948, I wonder what their March 1945/46 numbers were.
Interesting write up by the WC.

One of the most interesting things about weather can be watching these NWS stations and seeing where they end up with different weather elements (precip/temps/sunshine...etc). It looks March 2012 at Central Park will indeed make a run at the all time record warmest (51.1 F). The current 51.6 F should fall slightly when they average in last nights lows (fell to 28.8 F here on the coast for a few hrs, so CP must have been near/below 30 F). By late today, a slow moderation in both daytime/nighttime temps will begin, with highs 58 – 62 (Wed/Thur)...and 53 – 57 F on the last two days of the month (low should be 40 – 46 F right to the end of the month). Since this should only allow the monthly mean to fall slightly, maybe 51.2 – 51.3 F...etc...I think NWS Central Park will end with March 2012 the warmest on record.

As far as the weather…I think the dry conditions will be the headline as we head into early and mid April…we just can’t seem to get any rain. In fact, Wednesday/Wednesday night/early Thur…seems to be the last chance for any rainfall for 7 to 10 days, and NWS is only giving a 50% chance of this mid week showers. After that, it appears another protracted period of dry weather will be on tap. Temps will also moderate, and by late this weekend into next week, we should see highs from the upper 50’s into the low, maybe mid 60’s. So I think this fire danger issue will be with us for some time to come. Otherwise, the next 10 days look pretty quite weather wise.

April Fools Storm Update:

Euro had nothing last 3 runs and decides to bring it back up. Coastal storm with a digging trough producing 6-9" of snow for Litchfield. 3-6" elsewhere. T-3" near coast.

Euro also has it cold for NorthEast in long range. A total flip from what I saw all winter long in the long range.

Latest GFS has the storm weaker and not as cold with no snow accumulations.

Looks like we made history with no blocking during a weak La Nina. lol

Interesting it's happening now, in Spring.

Today:
