    Spring Break

    March 24, 2014; 11:04 AM ET

    Monday Morning

    Spring Break usually implies going on vacation at some place warmer than home. In this case, I mean spring itself is taking a break. Not that it needed one, of course. The very cold air mass now dwelling in the Great Lakes and Northeast will actually be reinforced as a large high pressure area from northwest Canada arrives on the scene tomorrow night and Wednesday.

    With a powerful storm off the Northeast coast interacting with the big high, it will feel as cold as some of the coldest days we had in midwinter. However, the high will move off the coast Thursday and a rapid warmup will follow. This video has more. It should reach the 50s in New England and 60s farther south.

    Until the actual storm takes shape tomorrow, there will be some uncertainty about snow amounts. Our thinking has been that the very worst of the storm is offshore. However, even a small amount of snow tomorrow night can cause slipping and siding on streets and sidewalks.
