Wow, you hardy Northeasternites or Northeasterners (I doubt that they are words) deserve this weather, so get out and enjoy it! After many, many months of dreary, cool, damp weather, summer is here!! Well, it will at least feel like summer, though the calendar still says April.

Temperatures will soar under brilliant sunshine in many areas today, with highs 10-20 degrees warmer than yesterday. The only "fly in the ointment" will be a weak low pressure system over the eastern Great Lakes, which will cause a few scattered thunderstorms. New York, Boston, Providence, Philadelphia, get out and experience a preview of summer!! Story by AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Mark Paquette
