During the “hottest year ever”, we had this yesterday for the opening day of Baseball in Pittsburgh between the Pirates and the Cardinals: Pittsburgh temps in mid-30s — warming into low-40s with wind chill in 20s.
The forecast is for a blanket of 3-6″ of snowfall by Monday evening in New England. Boston 3-5″ NYC = 0″
Monday high-temps in 20s or low 30s = more than 20°F below normal for April 4th around Boston.
And finally, it gets ugly overnight:
Tuesday morning, New England hard freeze. 21°F in Boston close to 1881 record low of 20°F … teens just to west
