Wet and Cool

Well, March should exit as a wet month as we have had since the last week of February over 11 " of rain and look to add perhaps a couple of more inches as another coastal storm hits us on Monday and Tuesday. Luckily, the temps have been mild enough to keep us wet and not white, pleasant indeed, even with the changeover to snow for a bit yesterday with no accumulation, made for talking points rather than shoveling points. Tornado season is approaching for the Plains, wondering if the El Nino influence will keep numbers down for the season. Time will tell.

Another High Water Event

Well, with over 4" of rain from this storm system, the Blackstone River is high again, with levels approaching 11 feet, which is about 2 feet over flood stage. The levees are doing their job and keeping the City dry here in Woonsocket, but areas such as Whitinsville, MA and Lincoln and Cumberland, RI are probably experiencing some flooding conditions right now.

Another Weekend, another storm

Another major Nor'easter for Southern New England as we expect up to 4" of rain, high winds and coastal erosion. The only good news is that it will not be snow here. Don't fret, as the middle of next week will feel Spring like, nearing 60 degrees !!! Do not forget to adjust your clocks ahead tonight for Daylight Saving Time.
