Dry Day #8 and Counting

By Melissa Mack, WBZ-TV

Today will be our 8th consecutive day of dry weather.

We’ve had tranquil weather since the wintry mess on October 29-30.

Watch Melissa’s forecast:

A definitive upper level ridge along with a surface high are protecting the East Coast from any precipitation today.

With the sunshine and the WSW winds, temperatures will rise into the lower and middle 60s.

The exception will be the outer Cape/Islands with highs in the upper 50s to near 60F.

Dry day #9, Tuesday, will be the warmest day with highs in the upper 60s to near 70F!

That’s ~10-15F degrees above the average!

We maintain highs in the 60s on Wednesday, except for cooler high temps along the coast.

The ridge will be breaking down on Wednesday.

This will ‘open the door’ to the frontal boundary stationed to our west and a non-tropical low pressure center to our southeast.

They will both begin to affect southern New England on Wednesday night.

We will end a soon-to-be 10-day dry stretch on Thursday as scattered showers enter the region.

Once this cold front pushes east Thursday night, Friday will be cooler with highs near 50F along with windy conditions as cold air advection is taking place.

***Full ‘Beaver or Frost’ Moon will be this Thursday at 3:18pm.***

So far, this weekend  is looking sunny with highs in the 50s.
