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.
Sunny dry and breezy SW winds today, Gusts to 20 to 30 mph by midday and afternoon. Highs will be cooler than yesterday…58 to 64. There are clouds in the far northern and western reaches of New England associated with an upper low which continues to lift into Canada. Those clouds will primarily stay there, but a few puffy cu’s may pop with the heating of the day across the interior. Winds will be diminishing tonight with lows dropping into the 40′s with clear to partly cloudy skies.
The Upper low over james Bay continues to wrap in seasonable dry and cool weather into the Northeast today with breezy WSW winds. There are more clouds north with partial sunshine. In the south, sun filled skies all morning through the early afternoon before clouds begin to build & increase during the afternoon. Highs in the Lwr-mid 60′s. Not as windy, but still an active wind which could still gust to 30 from time to time.
The rain and humidity is long gone. The winds of change have moved in today as low pressure deepens and pulls into southern Canada. The winds are providing a refreshing clean and dry airmass with the definite feel of fall. Bright sunshine this morning will give way to building PM cumulus thanks to cooler air aloft and a piece of energy which will move in later today which could trigger a late PM sprinkle or shower farther inland. Highs will average above normal in the mid-uppr 60s with some areas at the coast nearing 70. The winds will provide a chill to the air.
High pressure SW of New England is firmly in control today wrapping in warming light WNW winds which will warm the eastern facing beaches today. Temps in the valleys this AM are in the 40′s, with temps in the 60′s in the hills. Sunshine with highs in the Lwr-mid 80′s by this afternoon.
Temps are starting off crisp and cool early this AM, but will quickly be on the rise today. At 9:30 AM we have already come close to where our highs were Friday…and we have quite a bit more daylight to go! By late morning, widespread 60′s…by afternoon, highs will be in the 70′s and lwr 80′s.
The heaviest rain is exiting New England and we will see a very gradual improvement for the rest of the day. Satellite observations are showing a significant dry slot which will be shifting in during the afternoon hours. This should alow for breaking sunshine in SNE to develop…especially south of the Pike. Where sunshine emerges temps will spike into the Lwr-mid 70′s thanks to some warmer air aloft. Where clouds remain, temps remain in the 60′s
High pressure is close enough to provide enough subsidence for some increasing PM sunshine across the north with skies becoming partly sunny. This stable sinking air should allow for some brightening to the skies this afternoon in the south as well…with more clouds south of the Pike closer to the front.
Winds are extremely light today, but expect them to shift onshore this afternoon for a feeble onshore wind. This will keep it slightly cooler at the beaches in the mid 70′s with many inland areas in the upper 70′s and Lwr 80′s, especially if we break into any period of sunshine…which I am expecting to develop this afternoon.
Plenty of sunshine out there today with high thin cirrus clouds drifting above our heads. A trough to our west will be pushing into the region this afternoon bringing a few thicker middle level clouds along with it. High pressure at the surface will keep us dry and cool with highs in the mid 60′s for most. Winds will be light, so a PM seabreeze will keep temps mainly in the lower 60′s at the beaches.
