Mother Nature is supplying us with a free car wash this Monday morning!

Many neighborhoods have already received 1-3″ of rain so far.  Most areas will end out with rainfall totals of 2-3″+ before this system departs.

That’s going to definitely add some relief to the yearly rainfall deficit which is anywhere from 6-8″ below normal since January 1, 2012.

Rain will continue to taper as we head into the morning rush and approach the lunch hour.

At that point, clouds will be diminishing and breaks of sun can be expected this afternoon and evening.

Highs will reach the lower and middle 60s. Winds will start from the southeast and switch to the southwest this afternoon. Wind Advisories are in effect for coastal Mass. through 10 a.m. as gusts will reach 50+mph.

Tuesday and Wednesday will continue to be affected by the closed upper level low and this troughy pattern.  That will mean sun, variable clouds, and a few spot showers (mainly diurnal showers). Winds will still be ‘feisty’ both days, yet not as windy as today.  Highs will be near 60 on Tuesday and in the lower 60s on Wednesday.

Thursday is showing a bright start with clouds quickly filling-in by midday.  Once we delve into the heart of the afternoon, we introduce showers into the forecast once again.

There is a slightly different solution amongst the EURO and the GFS models with the track of this low pressure system, but that being said,  both show showers arriving by late-day Thursday and ending Friday morning.

The EURO keeps showers in New England through midday Friday, but the GFSx has the rain out of here by early Friday morning.

Highs on Thursday will be in the lower and middle 60s while Friday will be a little cooler in the upper 50s.

The pick day this weekend is looking like it’ll be on Saturday as we will have plentiful sunshine with highs in the upper 50s.

Sunday will be mainly cloudy with showers along with highs between 50-55.

Welcome back to work and school.
