Beyond The Forecast
It’s been a very sad night in the Plains as tornadoes have been touching down all evening and the news just keeps getting worse..
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.
Many hit 80+ today and that hasn’t happened in quite some time…
Showers and a few thunderstorms rolled through this evening just ahead of a warmfront which represents the leading edge of much warmer air which will sneak into Southern New England aloft tonight and get mixed down to the surface tomorrow leading to some very warm temps.
We avoided major frost problems last night as clouds hung around only allowing a handful of communities to get down to the freezing mark.
A bit of wind and a deck of clouds are keeping temps close to 50 degrees this evening but later tonight,
Clouds are breaking in inland with partly sunny skies. I expect this clearing line to continue to work itself west to east during the day with brightening skies, sun and clouds in place for the afternoon. Clouds will linger longer across SE MA and the Cape & Islands. With the increasing susnhine, temps will climb inot the upper 60′s to near 70.
More clouds than sun today, but there will be breaks of sun from time to time. Any considerable sunshine will easily spike temps to near 75, but for now I am playing it conservative with highs ranging from 70-75. We will have to watch for a few scattered light showers from time to time…but most of the day will be dry across eastern MA which should make it OK to be outdoors most of the time.
