Maritime air to finally slow the advance of Spring

The mild air has done a number on the snow cover in low lying areas. The remnants of winter 2012 are now confined to the high country. Where the snow remains, the skiing has been great from what I hear with warm sunshine providing some of the softest snow of the season.

The warm weather and sunshine combination is likely at an end this week. Clouds and rain will prevail for much of the day Tuesday and this precipitation could end as a little wet snow Tuesday night as cooler "maritime" air backdoors its way into interior New England. Much of the rest of the week will likely stay on the cloudy side and although temperatures will remain above freezing for the most part, readings should stay in the 30's and 40's. The next system will brings its moisture into the region Friday in the form of a cold rain (maybe some ice in the highest elevations).

The rain should clear out by midday Saturday and the clouds by Sunday. After that, temperatures will again turn very warm with the help of sunshine and wherever the snow remains, some good spring skiing could certainly be had. 60-degree temperatures are again possible next week before the mild pattern finally breaks down and gives way to an extended period of more typical March weather.
