50s Saturday

This will be the second Saturday in a row with temperatures in the 50s, what a treat!  A few showers are possible in the morning but they should be gone before the Hartford Saint Patrick’s Day parade.  The rest of the time is partly cloudy and milder.  Also similar to last weekend, Sunday looks cooler and breezy with high temperatures back in the 30s.  There is a chance for snow Sunday night into Monday.  But the latest trend is to push the storm farther south with light snow OR nothing at all. The operational runs of the ECMWF (European) and GFS model both show a miss right now.  Notice, I'm ignoring the NAM (not by mistake).  The ECMWF ensembles still show a slight chance for snow, especially in southern CT with 20% of the 50 ensemble members showing 1" of snow for the shoreline. Certainly nothing to get excited about.
The "European" computer model for Monday.
