Steady snow breaks into just a few scattered snow and rain showers this afternoon as the energy that helped develop our storm swings overhead, but the heart of the storm, itself, moves offshore, leaving a general 4 to as much as 8 inches behind in Eastern New England - with amounts closer to 10 inches in Eastern Maine where snow stays the day.
Some breaks in the clouds will afford the opportunity for some melting throughout New England this afternoon and early evening with late day temperatures exceeding 40 for many, but watch out for black ice overnight tonight as temperatures fall beneath a clearing sky, save for some mountain flurries.
Sunshine starts Tuesday, but clouds will increase through the afternoon as an interesting weather scenario sets up across New England: cold air from Canada will push into the North Country, while mild air from the Ohio Valley pushes into Southern New England. The clash of mild and cold air sets up increased cloud cover for the middle and end of the week, but also an increasing disparity in weather, with areas of rain and accumulating snow for Northern New England by later Wednesday all the way into Friday, and temperatures near or perhaps even over 60 in parts of Southern New England.
This weekend is likely to bring relatively mild conditions - into the 50s - with mostly dry conditions likely, though there is a slight chance of a shower on Easter Sunday. Next week surely looks to start milder than this one did in the exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast!
