Sam’s Weather Report

Sam Ey, Weather Editor

The weather of the Week: 

Monday through Wednesday are the picks of the week, with mostly sunny skies with temperatures around 50 to near 60 degrees. End of the week will have a chance of rain, but no snow. According to long-range forecasts, we should be done with the snow here in the valley. But we are in New England in March, so I’ll wait until April break before placing confidence on that. Lastly, here below is the National Weather Service (NWS)’s prediction for temperatures for April as well as now through June. 

What’s Going on in the Weather World? 

Last week’s Nor’easter dropped over 3 feet of snow in some areas of New England and New York State. The most observed was in Southern Vermont, with 39 inches of snow. In other news, this weekend marked 98 years since the “Tri-State Tornado”. From the NWS “On March 18, 1925, the Great Tri-State Tornado tore across Southeast Missouri, Southern Illinois, and Southwest Indiana. With its rapid movement, monstrous size, and long track, the tornado took hundreds of lives and injured thousands. By all means, the Tri-State Tornado was a rare event—an event that few people will ever experience in their lifetime.” It was the deadliest tornado in US history and the strongest until the Bridge Creek tornado of May 3rd, 1999.
