Latest Boston Barry Burbank
Yesterday’s boomers released copious amounts of rain in places especially over southern Worcester County where some locations such as Southbridge received well over 3 inches resulting in some flooding. Hail was rather widespread in many areas along and on either side of the MA Pike.
It’s all about location. The weather can be so different from place to place on any day at any time of the year. Today is a classic example as murky, damp even chilly conditions exist most of the day close to the coast where the fog banks may persist in varying thickness.
I hope that you enjoyed the weekend that was highlighted by sunny mornings and cloudier afternoons. Thankfully, the showers didn’t materialize until late in the afternoon yesterday ahead of an approaching warm frontal boundary that has pushed offshore early this morning. Residual low-level moisture in the form of a low overcast will show thinning and brightening spots leading to some clearing and resultant sunshine as the morning progresses.
It’s a fab Friday as the sun shines brightly this morning following the warmest day since September 13. Boston’s 3:47 pm max of 82 degrees yesterday was not even close to the record of 93 which was set in 1932. We managed to capture the northern fringe of the hot air mass that scorched the upper Plains States and upper Mississippi Valley with temperatures in the range of 95-105 degrees a few days ago.
We’re in the sweet spot today- located between a front to the south and another one well to the north. With a dry atmosphere in place, the stage is set for abundant sunshine although some streaks and filaments of feathery clouds may stream in as a strong jet exists over New England. Decent boundary layer mixing will transport the higher momentum down to the surface resulting in a freshening westerly wind to 15-35 mph.
The cool weather of the past couple of days climaxed early this morning with temperatures plunging close to the freezing point. It was definitely colder than yesterday morning as the ridge of high pressure was poised over the region resulting in a clear sky and calm conditions which is key for premium radiational cooling.
