Northeast Memorial Weekend: Slow Improvement

The storm responsible for the wind, cold, rain and snow in the Northeast Friday and Saturday will slowly ease up for the balance of the holiday weekend.

Steady rain and high elevation snow will retreat to northern New England by Sunday, with spotty showers over southern New England and eastern upstate New York.

Chilly winds will continue for outdoor activities from western upstate New York to eastern Pennsylvania, New York City, New Jersey and the Delmarva Peninsula Sunday.

Farther west from Michigan to eastern Ohio, western Pennsylvania, western Maryland and the Virginias, after a start with near-freezing temperatures, sunshine will allow a nice recovery during the midday and afternoon under sunshine.

Despite the departure of the storm, however, many folks may not feel comfortable with shorts and short sleeves. RealFeel® temperatures will hover in the 40s and 50s in many locations during the afternoon Sunday.

For much of the region, Memorial Day will be the nicest day since early last week. At this point for most outdoor activities, anything will seem better than temperatures averaging 15 to 25 degrees below normal and feeling even colder.

Most places can expect sunshine and much less chilly conditions. However, patchy clouds, a cold wind and spotty showers are still in the offing for northern New England. There is also a chance clouds and showers roll in from the west over Ohio and West Virginia as the day progresses on Monday.

Warmth is forecast to build over the region later next week, after dodging showers and thunderstorms.
