What a day…with abnormally warm air and ample sun. The high in Boston reached 59 degrees, just shy of 60 yet still 10 degrees from the record set back in 2009. There were a few towns that did make the 60 degree club, they included Taunton, Plymouth, New Bedford, Norwood and Providence. The warmth sticks around for another day and a half as warm southerly flow continues to pump warmth into New England. However, with an approaching front, clouds will begin to takeover. First we’ll see some areas of fog and frost in the morning…both will burn off early to a sky dominated by higher and mid-level clouds. The front will continue to work east and showers along will reach us by early Wednesday morning. Some of the showers will be briefly intense but will be over by midday.
Following the front, the air will dry out quickly and sunshine will return by the end of the day but so will the cooler air. Temps will be near normal for the end of the week with highs in the 40s.
Over the weekend, a solid boundary will begin to develop between very warm air south and very cold air north. Along storms will be forming but the storm track appears to be slightly west of New England. This would lead to more rain than liquid precip especially over the weekend. Early next week the storm track will be watched closely for signs of getting colder.
