Plenty of sunshine is starting the first day of spring, but during the afternoon some clouds make their way across Central PA. An upper level area of low pressure just to our north keeps enough chilly air over the region to help with the cloud formation. Breezy west/northwesterly winds persist as well during the afternoon as a surface trough sweeps through. This helps spark some afternoon flurries and sprinkles throughout Central Pennsylvania, with minimal precipitation amounts. Highs only reach the lower to middle 40s, with many locations to the northwest stuck in the 30s.
If you think this is a little too cold for the first day of spring, it can always be worse! The same upper level area of low pressure bringing us the chilly and breezy weather is also having its impacts throughout northern New England. Residents there are shoveling or plowing snow, with several inches to over a foot across Massachusetts Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine! It makes our 40 degree weather look pretty good!
