Persistent chill to reign over northeastern US into mid-May

 Air more typical of late March will chill the northeastern United States into mid-May.
The storm system responsible for rain and thunderstorms to end the week will stall across the region and open the door for chilly air from Canada to dive southward and stick around for several days.
Highs will range from 15 to 25 degrees Fahrenheit below normal for several days.
“After several days of highs in the 70s and 80s across the interior Northeast during April, some locations will fail to reach reach 50 for three or four straight days during early May,” AccuWeather Chief Meteorologist Elliot Abrams said.
Northeast chilly

Some may need to dig out sweatshirts, jeans and heavier jackets when heading out for any evening activities or sporting events. Many will also turn on heat in their homes.
Brisk winds on some days will lead to AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures 5 and 10 degrees lower than the actual air temperature.
Low temperatures on most nights will dip into the 30s across much of the Northeast and even as far south as northern North Carolina. However, a thick cloud cover will likely prevent the development of a widespread frost.
“Any locations that clear out during the overnight hours will be at greatest risk for a frost or freeze,” Abrams said.
As a precaution, be sure to cover any sensitive plants or vegetation that need to remain outdoors.

Low temperatures will fall below freezing on most nights in the higher elevations. Lows in Boston, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., will only fall to near 40.
Rain showers, and perhaps some snow showers, will accompany the chill across the higher elevations.
“Some light accumulation of snow is possible across the higher elevations of the interior Northeast on Sunday night,” AccuWeather Long-Range Meteorologist Paul Pastelok said.
Those hoping for the return of springlike and even summerlike weather may have to wait a few weeks.
“This Northeast chill may not be completely done until late in May,” Pastelok said.

We have had cool summers, about once every 20 years we get a summer where it just wont warm up and frankly, it's depressing.

When you have a mild winter, you usually pay for it later.

Mild winters frequently seem to lead to miserable springs, it seems... :(

Yes,I'm a firm believer that Mother Nature usually balances things out. If you have a mild if not warm winter,you have a cool summer and vice versa, making it sometimes warmer on some days in February and March than it is on some days in April and May and this is one such example.

If you grew up in New England there can be several changes in the weather I'm not surprised concerning May That being said as long as there are sunny days it's still one of the most beautiful places to be I live in Florida now but still return
Violet J. Tolia Willis ·
Let me guess . . . 25 degrees cooler than normal . . . and all due to global warming right? It has been a cold spring with a few days that got warm then immediately cold again . . . the buds are not even barely out on trees yet in northern Maine . . . and we are heading into the second week of May? Fourth cold spring in a row here . . . where is the warmth?
Matt Monahan ·
Late May??? God this weather sucks in the Northeast. Once again my tomatoes will be green when the frost comes in Sept. Why dont the Bermuda high of the summer last a GD month like this low is going to. It seems Like gobal warming had effed up the pattern in the Northeast Making it cooler

It's a neverending stretch of days ten degrees below average around here but at least the gloomy part of this horrible pattern will stay to the east of my area.
Bill Ross ·
this is the May version of February 2015.
Zack Hodgson ·
Go away cold and don't come back until late October. No more storm systems needed until late Fall. Hoping for searing heat for the last third of May with not a drop of rain. This is a very unwelcome pattern change. 100F heat is way better than unusual cold weather.

I'm just going to enjoy these cool May temps since in a few weeks the hot humid days we're prone to in NJ will be here. So it's nice just warming up in a nice cozy blanket.
Matt Monahan ·
I like my cozy blanket in January noy May. Much easier to cool down then to get warm

I am not a fan of this unusual cold weather. This is the worst may i've ever seen since 2002.
Bill Ross ·
it will easily be worse than 2002, probably close to 1997.
