SJV Weather for Monday, April 10 – Sunday, April 16, 2017
High pressure off the East Coast will pull warm air into the Valley Monday pushing high temps to around 60 degrees across the region. Low pressure over the Great Lakes will slowly drift eastwards with an associated cold front producing plenty of clouds across the region. The cold front drops into the Valley early Tuesday producing a chance for showers across the region as it sags to the Maine coast by Tuesday evening. Rain showers persist Wednesday into Thursday as a triple-point low forms and moves through southern Maine then into the Maritime. High pressure builds in behind the low bringing cool, but stable weather Friday and Saturday. Another frontal system approaches late Saturday with considerable cloudiness and a chance for showers Sunday with a few snowflakes possible Easter Sunday morning.
