Showers and thunderstorms today with wind gusts as high as 39 mph later tonight.  Half of the weekend is looking good with sun and a high in the low 50s tomorrow with showers and high winds arriving on Sunday.  So if you are going to start on your spring yard projects Saturday is the day to do it and mother nature will supply a watering for your new grass seeding on Sunday.

Earlier in the week there was talk of a snow storm in the long-range forecast.  We may see some precipitation later in the week but it will not be in the form of the white stuff.  We certainly can’t rule the possibility out later this spring.  There have been a number of significant April snow storms in New England’s past.
