After a day where we went from snow, to sun, 40 degree temperatures and melting, we are back into colder weather. It seems as though we just can't shake it. Highs across the state ranged from the mid to upper 30s, but a stiff wind made it feel colder. The only upside was that it was by and large a mostly sunny day with dry conditions. Currently across the state we have clear skies and temperatures in the teens and low 20s inland, to mid 20s at the shore. Clear skies will persist through the early morning hours and temperatures will drop back into the upper single digits and low teens inland, with lows at the shore falling back into the lower 20s.
Look toward Tuesday and the middle of the week. Temps look to rebound slightly starting with Tuesday afternoon where highs finally look to get back into the 40s statewide with partly cloudy skies. It looks as though temperatures may stay out of the teens for Tuesday night, which will be welcomed with open arms by those who are tired of the cold temperatures, lows look to range between the low to mid 20s.
With the moderating temperatures, comes the chance of rain unfortunately. Wednesday starts out dry with highs ranging between the low and mid 40s. Clouds and showers will move in later on Wednesday night. The only upside to this is that low temperatures will stay above freezing across the state, lows will be in the upper 30s. Thursday looks to be the warmest day of the week, but also the rainiest. Showers in the morning will become a steadier rain in the afternoon, high temperatures look to reach the low to mid 50s statewide. Rain continues through Thursday night, in fact we could still see some rain on Friday morning. Lows on Thursday look to be in the upper 30s, while highs on Friday will approach 50.
Monday: Sunny and breezy during the day, temperatures 35-40 for highs, Clear conditions at night with lows ranging from the low teens inland to the upper teens at the shore.
