As high pressure begins to build into the region and nudge the pesky nor'easter farther away on St. Patrick's Day.  It will remain chilly, with highs generally in the 30s. Chilly but quiet weather persists into early next week. Spring officially begins at 12:15 PM Tuesday. As for the 1st FULL day of Spring on Wednesday, it looks snowy, as yet another storm system will be developing along the coast. Right now, it is still too early for specifics but we'll keep you advised. The computer models keep flip-flopping on the forecast track but should begin to narrow down over the weekend..
