Cloudy Humid Weekend…Unsettled Pattern Holds
The Rain has pushed off shore, but plenty of clouds remain today as SW winds aloft continue to stee warm humid airmass into the northeast. High pressure will be building towards New England with a stalling front off our coast this afternoon. This should give way to some increasing sun or at least a thing to the overcast this afternoon. Breaks are already visible on the satellite. Overall, a decent Saturday… With temps already in the 70′s, by afternoon it will feel down right summer like with highs in the Lwr 80′s and dewpoints near 70. Ugh.
With a un upper level ridge off the coast and an upper level low back through the Great lakes…this stagnant weather pattern resumes for the forseeable future. Nothing seems to want to budge in this blocking pattern. Some dry air inplace tonight, but overrunning clouds are likely with lows in the 60′s near 70 with patchy fog in this humid airmass.
We will be tracking showers with embedded heavier rain moving up the coast Sunday. A wave of low pressure will push north in the sourthly flow up the coast and will ride up along a stalled front just off the coast. Many of our models are keeping the showers south of New England Sunday, but with increasing lift and moistening of the airmass, there is an increased risk for a few showers along the south coast which may even push into CT & RI during the afternoon. Another cloudy humid day with highs in the upper 70′s and lwr 80′s with breaks of sun especially north closer to the drier air.
