The weekend weather was delightful for all and not just the birds! Mr. and Mrs. Grossbeak enjoyed it to the max at this feeder in Westminster. Thank you Pat for this neat photo. We’d love to see your pictures anytime. Please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
After Saturday’s stellar afternoon of 100% sunshine and 75 degrees, it was slightly cooler yesterday with many schools on the WBZ WeatherBug Network closer to 70. It was cooler along the coast where a sea breeze developed. The building clouds lead to a few widely scattered sprinkles and brief showers and this action will be repeated today and as the atmosphere becomes a bit more unstable, the showers may be heavier in a few spots with lightning and thunder not impossible. As an evolving upper air low pressure center drifts southeastward across New England and offshore, moist air circulating around the center will likely produce additional scattered showers on Tuesday. Expect high temperatures today and tomorrow mainly in the middle 60s. There will be a break part of Wednesday as some partial sunshine boosts temperatures back to 70 or so except at the coast.
Due to North Atlantic blocking, the next bundle of energy crossing southern Canada will be forced southeastward into the Northeast and that means our region will be vulnerable to showers later Wednesday blossoming into a steadier occasional rain on Thursday into Friday with more showers lingering into Saturday. Consequently, it will be tough to warm up to the middle 50s with perhaps some upper 50s to near 60 on Saturday. Once this system shifts eastward, there should be a dramatic change to sunnier and warmer weather starting next Sunday with 75 possible then perhaps closer to 80 on Memorial Day unless a backdoor cold front rushes into the area sooner.
Todd Gutner is delivering his thoughts on WBZ News this morning and noon and Eric Fisher will follow later in the day at 5pm.
Make it a great week!
