We are a wake up away from the weekend and while temperatures have cooled, the overall pattern hasn’t changed at all.  High pressure is still in charge and that means nearly 100% sunshine over the weekend.  It also means warmer temps inland, away from developing seabreezes…65-70 Inland with 55-60 at the coast.  The onshore flow will also lead to clumps of low clouds over SE MA but no rain at all.

Speaking of rain, it’s been eight days since measurable rain and with the pattern stuck in neutral right now there is practically no chance of it until the middle of next week.  A slow moving low pressure system will migrate east from the Midwest as the blocked up pattern begins to move again.  This surface low supported by an upper level cut-off low will spread rain to the East Coast which will get drawn north by a digging Polar vortex over Hudson Bay in Canada.  This will lead to periods of much needed rain, and because the system will be moving so slowly, the rain will likely be spread out over two days…Wednesday and Thursday.

Have a great weekend all!
