The low pressure system responsible for our two-day rain event continues to lumber slowly to the east today, and the slow departure is keeping wind up for today. In fact, areas east of the Turnpike could still see some rain today.
But high pressure is building in gradually and the weekend warm-up is still expected, with temps tomorrow returning to the vicinity of normal, and well-above normal temps at or above 80 by the first part of next week. Models still differ on the evolution of the next major system about this time next week, with one group bringing another beneficial rain event and the other model group keeping us dry.
Forecast rainfall 1pm Wed 3/30, GFS model.
Forecast rain/snow at 7am Wed 3/30, ECMWF model
At this time frame — 7 to 8 days — the Euro is typically the better-performing model. That would lean toward the dry solution for mid-week, while the GFS indicates we could get another good soaking. Personally, I’ll hold out hope for more moisture.
