In The Doldrums
From what I’m hearing around town, I think that it’s nearly unanimous that we are happy to hear about this uneventful weather pattern. If you’re part of the masses, you will love to hear that this dry spell will even last into Thanksgiving week.
Today will be partly sunny with plenty of high and mid level cloudy intervals. There will be more sunshine available this afternoon. Otherwise, the north-northeast wind will keep temperatures in the middle and upper 40s. A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect from 8am to 2pm with a risk of minor flooding/splashover for east-facing beaches. This is due to the north-northeast wind in addition to the high astronomical tide. However, today’s midday tide is a little lower than yesterday’s.
This weekend before Thanksgiving will be ‘in the clear’. Maybe you are the desginated grocery shopper for your family’s turkey dinner or possibly you are choosing to put up the outdoor Holiday decorations before the weather pattern turns active. Saturday will be sunny as well as Sunday. Both days will have high temps in the upper 40s to near 50F.
The beginning of Thanksgiving week will keep the trend going with mostly sunny skies and highs around 50F (Monday). The coastal storm is still a ‘miss’ according to our two most reliable long-range models. So, Tuesday will be partly cloudy while Wednesday is looking more like a partly sunny day. Winds may become a little more active on Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day, depending on the exact proximity between the offshore storm and Southern New England. Thanksgiving day will be partly cloudy with highs in the lower 50s. So, not only will it be a great week for those travelling across the northeast prior to Thanksgiving, but it’s also going to be ideal for a Turkey Day backyard football game after enjoying a delicious turkey dinner!
Happy FRRRiday! :)
