The weather, currently.

Dry weather with a moderating trend on the way

A cool seabreeze kept temperatures in the 50s for Patriots Day and they'll fall into the 40s overnight as rain moves in after midnight. There is a wind advisory along the coastline but a high wind warning for the cape in the islands until early Tuesday. The rain will come to an end by about 8:00 or 9:00 a.m. followed by mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid 50s. Look for Sunshine to return for the middle of the week as high as stay in the upper 50s and rise to near 60 by Thursday Friday's even milder with highs in the mid 60s.

We know it’s already mid-April, but an intense spring storm is bringing late, yet heavy snow across the Northeast region. It’s always a good time to brush up on your snow storm safety.

Meteorologists say that the best thing to do ahead of a snowstorm is to be prepared. Check to see if your shovel is usable and proceed to shovel the sidewalk and area around you. Make an emergency supply kit for your car, charge your devices and stock your fridge up with basic essentials. Then, as the storm passes, remember to check on your neighbors, make sure your pipes aren’t frozen, and restock for the next storm.
