Winter Tries a Comeback Up north

While our highs topped 80 today and should again tomorrow, a strong surge of cold air is diving southward across the central plains.   Highs in Nebraska will struggle to get above 50 tomorrow after being in the upper 80s-low 90s today.  Fortunately this surge will not plow through us, although we will see cooler temps later this week.  The real Arctic air stays far to our north, but rain could linger along the frontal boundary as it stalls along the Louisiana coast.  This next rainy spell doesn’t look as intense nor as widespread as last week’s downpours.   As the cold air focuses again on the northeast, Boston could add on to its snowfall record that was broken over the weekend.   I put my plants back outside this past weekend as I see no real cold air in sight and the higher sun angle should mean less chance for any late season frosts or freezes.   Stay tuned!
