2. No Triple Crown again this year. Truth be known…I’m being factitious with that one, because if I was going to be disappointed over something, the winner of a horse race would be the very last. Again to quote a neighbor (a different one) “don’t ever forget there are a lot more horses asses than there are horses.”
Where the sunshine has been this morning, highs will be climbing into the upper 60′s nearing 70 inland away from the coast this afternoon. Clouds will be on the increase ahead of a warm front which will begin to push into New England later today and tonight. This front will help to trigger showers by the mid-late afternoon inland. These showers will spread east tonight.
The jetstream is steering NW winds aloft supplying a comfortable dry airmass with fairly typical temperatures for this time of year with highs in the Lwr 70s inland, and cooling onshore winds at the coast keeping temps in the 60′s at the beaches. Sunny to partly sunny skies for Saturday.
High pressure is sliding in from the NW and this will lead to more great weather.
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.
This weekend might be the perfect time to catch up and get away from the depressing political news of the moment.
Zdeno Chara showed yet again why the Bruins feel he is their Norris Trophy winner every single year.
Many hit 80+ today and that hasn’t happened in quite some time…
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 boil of left- and right-wing rhetoric reduces any issue immediately to its partisan bones, which are so calcified with grievance and stereotyping that no honest exchange is possible.
