You know the old saying, "If you don't like the weather in New England, just wait five minutes?" That couldn't be more true then what we can expect this week from Mother Nature.

Saturday, we saw between four and eight inches of snow, and now we're looking for some drastic changes this week in Connecticut and the Hudson Valley. Mother Nature sure is a mad scientist.

According to the National Weather Service, the record high temperature in Connecticut and the Hudson Valley on Wednesday is 63 degrees, and we're expected to crush that number as some places are projected to be in the 70s. It will be a bit cooler at the shore line, but for February, I don't think I'll be hearing anyone complaining.

In what has seemed to be a brutally cold winter, we should be getting a little taste of spring this week. The warm-up begins Today with temps into the mid to upper 50s, and then comes Wednesday's record high temps. It won't last long though, temps by the end of the week should be back to around normal for this time of year, and the weekend looks cool and damp.

The National Weather Service says:

Above normal temperatures will continue through mid week, with highs climbing above 60 from the city north and west on Tuesday and to around 70 on Wednesday. Temperatures will be about 10 degrees cooler across coastal Connecticut.

So even though it's only going to warm up for about a day or so, it is a welcome break for this time of year, so get out there and enjoy it.
