    More Records are Toast

    In this video, we see how the weather in the Great Lakes and Northeast will change during the next week. Today is another very warm day region wide... and more records will melt into history. However, cold air now in eastern Canada may have a shot to come well south into New England Monday and Tuesday. Computer models are not in unison about this yet. Subfreezing nighttime temperatures may occur south into parts of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. This is quite typical of late March and early April, except... things have been far from what is typical recently.

    Many trees, shrubs and other perennials have gone into their springtime growth spurt well ahead of schedule. This leaves them open to damage if there is late freeze, so we'll be watching the situation closely... along with you. Cold periods in early spring should not come as a shock.
