After an unsettled Saturday our weather will turn more tranquil for today, Mother's Day. While the second part of the weekend will be nicer than the first, it's not without some issues.

Much need rain showers continue to rotate through the area this afternoon. At times the rain totally stops only to be followed by a few downpours a few moments later. There has even been some sunshine across parts of the region. The unsettled day is thanks to a storm system spinning in the atmosphere to our south. The satellite image below shows the storm spinning around New York city. This storm has enough energy and moisture with it to be pushing rain showers into the area. Eventually, later this evening the system will move east and north and the chance of showers will end.

The first weekend in May is going to be a pretty nice one with sunshine and seasonable temperatures. Coastal areas are going to be cooler than those of you who live inland. In Boston, highs today will remain in the upper 50s while it will reach the middle 60s west of Route 128. As you know the ocean is still quite chilly and with the wind coming off the water this cools the air along the shore. Tomorrow a few clouds may start the day but it will turn out mainly sunny again. The sea breeze wonít be a strong tomorrow and most areas will enjoy temperatures well into the 60s to near 70F.

I think I heard a collective groan this morning when folks realized the day was going to feel more like early March than a week before May. The good news is the cold chilly weather isnít going to last that long and by tomorrow afternoon most of you will get to enjoy sunshine and temperatures 20 degrees warmer than today. We have all seen springs where these raw days last for a week or more so having one of these kind of days isnít so bad.

Temperatures are winter cold this morning with most places under the 30F mark and several towns in the 20s. Temperatures this cold in late April while not typical are not record breaking. It is unusual enough for a frost warning to be put into effect for much of Cape Cod and the islands. It was a bright and clear day yesterday, but spring has been very slow to arrive this year. Sunday was one of only a handful of sunny days since early March.

The juxtaposition of a beautiful day and what happened in Boston yesterday is always so strange to me. Last evening I was sitting outside watching the birds have a last feeding before they went to sleep. I kept thinking how fortunate I am to live in such a great part of the world during a fantastic time of year and yet keenly aware many families were living in utter dismay as their own lives had been turned upside down in an instant. I often say that I can tell you how everyoneís story ultimately ends, but the manner and timing of that ending are what we donít know.
It's quite chilly this morning across the region with a few spots in the 20s and most others in the 30s. The sun is very strong this time of year, similar to mid-August, so temperatures will rise rapidly through the morning. High pressure continues to build into region and this will be the first full week that you will really feel spring has arrived. A coastal sea-breeze will prevent Boston from hitting 60F today, but most areas away from the coast will be at or above that mark the entire week!

What a miserable afternoon. Cold, wind, rain and sleet. The weather doesn't get much more unfavorable. I don't think anyone liked today's return to winter. The good news is that the storm is going to pull away this evening and leave us with a few showers and a general trend towards better conditions. The heaviest of the rain should be over for the evening commute. Temperatures will remain in the 30s to lower 40s and winds will add to the chilly conditions.

Spring is a time of transition and when the weather transitions from winter to summer crazy things can happen. I just check the weather in Denver and it's 20F with snow. Further east, Washington, DC will be in the 80s the next couple of days and some areas will make a run at 90!

Sunshine starts our first day of March but clouds will fill back in this afternoon with the risk of a rain shower or two. There could be a few wet snow flakes over the higher terrain. Temperatures will remain typical for this time of year in the lower 40s. Since March begins today I thought it would be fun to look at some of the weather statistics we know about for the 3rd month of the year. March means big changes and two of the biggest occur with light and temperature. I might not get the forecast right every day in March, but I do know that we will gain a lot of light. On March 1st the sun sets at 5:34; on the 31st it sets at 7:09. Of course, 1 hour of that afternoon increase is due to daylight saving time, which starts on Sunday the 10th. If you are a morning person like me you wonít like the sunrises being back to after 7a.m. for a few
days. We will have to wait until the end of the month to have our sunrises back to around 6:30. All told, we gain just about 90 minutes of daylight this month and, after the 17th, the nights will once again be shorter than the days.
