A Beautiful Weekend in Store for the Northeast

While a strengthening storm will prolong the brisk, chilly conditions in coastal areas of New England and the mid-Atlantic into Friday, high pressure heading eastward from the Midwest will bring the storm- and winter-weary people in the region a break this weekend.
Strong March sunshine in most areas each day through Sunday will melt some snow this weekend at a controlled rate in most cases.

Nighttime temperatures will drop below freezing, causing a pause in the thaw, but can also lead to areas of black ice on untreated surfaces. Tread and drive carefully.
The thaw will lead to moderate rises on streams and rivers, but since the air will stay dry and no appreciable rain is forecast, few problems, other than some urban flooding, are expected.
Most areas that have considerable snow cover will experience highs in the 40s, while many locations without snow cover will have highs in the 50s this weekend.

Very Stormy Southern Europe

A series of storms will move across southern Europe over the next week. As has been the case most of the winter, high winds, heavy rain, and heavy snows are expected across Europe’s southern tier.

These storms will bring high winds to the Mediterranean. Very rough seas will continue to be a problem. Each storm that passes will be capable of building waves 10-20 feet over the open waters of the Mediterranean.
Heavy rain will likely lead to flooding in parts of the Iberian Peninsula, Italy, and Turkey. These countries have already had to deal with excessive rain recently.
Heavy snow will be a major problem for the Balkans, Bulgaria, and Romania. Snowfall could be measured in feet by this time next week. The mountains of Italy will also have very heavy snowfall.
This weather pattern could teleconnect to an active storm track redeveloping across the United States in the next week or two.
