Know The Present, See The FutureHigh pressure sits over us today with light NE winds and abundant sunshine. Highs climb to 46-50 this afternoon. Another stellar day for this time of year.
Stellar November Weather
Welcome Weekend ReliefTowards afternoon some high clouds will approach from the west associated with an approaching warm front. Regardless, lots of sun will be found with seasonal high temperatures around 50 degrees.
Cold Pattern Followed By Another Coastal StormWith breaks of sunshine, temperatures will be cool in the upper 40's northwest suburbs to lower 50's southeast Mass, Cape and Islands. An active and blustery wind at 15-25mph from the northwest will add some extra chill to the air making it feel more like the middle 40's. November is here!
Here Comes the Sun!Today, the feel of fall returns with a wind shift back to the NW. Early morning showers along with the front have pushed of the coast with rapidly clearing skies following in for the morning hours into the afternoon as skies.Skies will become mostly sunny with a chilly breeze from Canada which will help to keep temps about 15-20 degrees cooler than yesterday...so don't forget the warmer clothes.
Cold Start, Mild Finish This WeekendA widespread killing freeze is likely overnight with many areas spending a few hours in the 20's around dawn Saturday. After a frosty cold and clear start, Saturday will be filled with sunshine with highs around 50-55. Temps running below normal, but light winds in the sunshine will make for a very nice afternoon.
Fantastic Fall Weather On A RollWith the cold front offshore, we can expect a rapid increase in sunshine this morning with mostly sunny skies developing. Although we are behind the cold front, the coolest of the fall air is still well off to our northwest, and as a result temperatures will climb into the lower 70's most locations, with light northwesterly winds. It doesn't get much better than this (unless the Patriots win of course).
Squeeze Play Friday...Fine Autumn WeekendWith a weak ridge of high pressure still in place, just enough sinking air remains in place so by the afternoon, this deck of clouds will begin to thin inland giving way to increasing sunshine inland where high temps could climb into the Lwr 70's...especially in western New England who will see the most sun. Clouds will hold longer on the coast, but eventually the sun will emerge this afternoon. Light east winds will keep it cooler at the coast again in the Lwr-mid 60's. Cape Cod and the Islands will have a mostly cloudy day with the risk of being clipped with some light showers from the midday through afternoon.
Put A Fork In Summer...Fall Is Here to Stay.Cool High pressure sits over New England this morning with cool calm conditions. Temps in the 40's and 50's will be warming inot the 60's this afternoon. Light NE winds will keep it cooler at the coast 62-65, very similar to the current Ocean Temp. It will be slightly warmer inland 65-68 away from the onshore flow.
Heat & Humidity Remain for Now...But Signs of ChangeWe are quickly warming this morning from the 70's into the 80's. Buy midday, some areas will be approaching 90. Sunshine in place this morning will fade this afternoon under thickening clouds in advance of a prefrontal trough which is triggering a few scattered showers/storms in western/central NY. The increasing clouds will help to slow the warming. Hazy sunshine should last at our eastern facing beaches into the early afternoon before turning mostly cloudy. Dewpoints have been rising into the mid 60's and will likely climb to near 70 before the day is through so a typical muggy summer day in July with highs in the upper 80's and lwr 90's.
Another Round of Beneficial Rain...Then Warm Again!Sunshine and warmth will be increasing midday into this afternoon with highs climbing into the upper 70's and Lwr 80's. The peak of the heat will be across Metro west, with a cooler onshore wind for south facing coast lines. A lighter wind today will make it feel warmer and it will be... by a degree or two.
Nice Sunday has Gone South...Will Monday Deliver?The few moments of sunshine this morning have given way to building black bottom cumulus and threat for a few afternoon showers. I think we will be able to salvage part of the day, in between the breaks of clouds there will be some partial sunshine to enjoy. But with cooler air aloft, and low level moisture currently in place, alot of these clouds are here to stay and may actually start to build with the heating of the day to deposit a few afternoon showers or even a thunderstorm inland. High temps will be climbing into the lwr-mid 60's inland this afternoon, but cooler winds off the water with clouds will make it awfully cool at the coast keeping temps in the 50's.
