The newest data is suggesting that unseasonably cool temperatures could stick around in the Northeast well through April and into May. Although there will be warm spells, colder temperatures will be dominate for much of early spring. This summer though, temperatures in the Northeast are expected currently to be at or near average. The slight drought parts of the Northeast have been experiencing over the past several months (nothing similar to what California has) is expected either to clear up or stay the same due to the low chance of below average precipitation in the hotter months over the summer.
Still keep your salt ready to use against any possible black ice, but if you live in an area on or near the coast that has experienced any type of tropical entity (such as a hurricane or tropical storm) now is the time to start gathering supplies for an emergency kit in case one comes near you.
