Weather forecast: Top notch spring weather continues

What a stretch of weather we are enjoying! Wall to wall sunshine will continue today. Local lake breezes will cool the air this afternoon along the water’s edge of Lake Ontario. The mild air will continue all week long. The pattern switches back to a more seasonal one to finish off the month next weekend and early next week.

Deep ridged high pressure across the News England coastline will keep skies clear Monday and allow for a warm southerly flow to send temperatures back up into the 60s.

Expect a similar scenario Tuesday with ample sunshine and another comfortable high that sits something like 20° warmer than average. No records here, just some lucky warmth in late March. 
The jet stream that remains stuck in a large ridging pattern will facilitate a storm system moving by to our west through the Great Lakes and pushing a warm front by on Wednesday. An isolated shower or two is possible, but no changed in temperature is expected. In fact, we could see a jump in temperatures with lows in the 40s and afternoon highs climbing to the upper 60s. Thursday should feel like a late spring day with lows in the 50s and highs in the upper 60s to near 70° and mostly cloudy skies.

The pattern will break sometime Friday as a larger “block busting” storm system approaches the Northeast. Rain showers and a stiff breeze arrive sometime Friday that should keep temperatures out of the 60s. A lot still rides on the strength and path of this storm, but we will likely see some rain Friday and cooling temperatures into Saturday. That should keep Saturday more seasonal with afternoon highs back in the 40s. Another storm system moves by to the south on Sunday and depending on temperatures and path, this one could even bring a minor wintry mix Sunday night and Monday.
