A gorgeous Saturday morning will see increasing cloudiness by afternoon. Temps have started in the 30’s and will be climbing into the mid-upper 40’s by this afternoon with a mild west wind. Weak high pressure over us this morning will give way to an approaching front for the evening hours.
Big blue high pressure sitting over us is providing a calmer day with less of a wind chill factor. This high will be pulling off the coast and begin to wrap in warmer SW during the afternoon. This will allow temps to continue to rise through the day…but it will be a slow warming. In fact it will take the entire day of warming just to reach 32 degrees. But this will feel a whole lot better than yesterday! High clouds will continue to increase making for filtered sunshine this afternoon
Today we will see temps around 10-20 degrees above normal. Highs will be climbing into the 50’s south of the MA Pike…Some areas may approach 60 near RI this afternoon. Holding near 50-52 for SNH.
Light SW winds will bring in unseasonal warmth into the 40’s to near 50 this afternoon. Some cloudiness may try to sneak back in later this afternoon ahead of an approaching cold front which is currently back through the Great Lakes. This front will push through tonight with a few showers between 8 PM and 1 AM.
There are plenty of left over clouds this morning in SNH, western and central MA. Some of these clouds will push to the coast around lunch time along with the cold front. Winds will shift and pick up from the WNW this afternoon and temperatures will continue to free fall right through the evening with colder air draining in from Canada. Increasing sunshine later this afternoon with temps falling into the 30’s.
Cool filtered sunshine this morning with increasing high altitude clouds will give way to mostly cloudy skies this afternoon and warming temperatures into the 40’s. High pressure off the coast will wrap in warming SW winds…but the lack of sunshine will make it feel cooler. Keep a close eye on the radar today because we have quite a bit of rain just to our SW which is heading right to us for tonight. Clouds will thicken in advance of the rain this afternoon with showers arriving in western New England around sunset. Showers will be reaching the coast between 6-8 PM…
High pressure builds in over us Saturday supplying dry cold air with winds out of the North. Highs will be in the upper 20’s and Lwr 30’s in the sunshine. Ocean effect clouds and flurries will hang tough at the coast from Boston to the Cape.
Partly sunny skies this morning will give way to increasing cloudiness as the front pushes through this afternoon. This front may even trigger a brief rain or snow shower…but there is plenty of dry air in the low levels to keep today mostly dry. Highs will climb into the upper 30’s and lwr 40’s by midday before falling this afternoon behind the front.
The weekend weather is all about wind direction and airmass. Northerly winds are directing cool air from Canada over the region today. Winds are gusty on the Cape & islands and will die down during the afternoon. Temps at 850 are near 0 C, so cool northerly winds with this kind of airmass will help to keep temps mostly in the 40’s to near 50 even with 100% of the sun. Ocean effect cloudiness will be effecting the Cape and the islands into the afternoon.
High pressure south of New England will provide a dry day for the region. A mid-level cloud deck in western New England with early dense fog in the Valleys. Some of these clouds are trying to spread eastward during the morning through afternoon. Sunshine will be most abundant at the coast. A mix of sun and clouds across the region today with highs in the upper 50’s and lwr 60’s.
