Reality Breezes Back
Today's weather will feature a March-like setup -- cool northwest breezes, a mix of sun and clouds, and temperatures that will be more typical for March than May. We should see some recovery in temperatures through midday and into the early afternoon, enough to see lower and middle 50's nearly everywhere this afternoon, although with northwest winds at 12 to 20 miles per hour sustained and gusts to 25-30 there will be a bit of chill in the air. Our best chances of sunshine will be in the midday hours -- generally 10 to 1 -- as we get into a slot between the cloud deck with the front and building cool air cumulus to our northwest that will move through over the afternoon.
A few rogue sprinkles/flurries/sleet showers can't be ruled out in the Poconos this afternoon and early evening thanks to atmospheric instability and some Great Lakes enhancement.
