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.
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.
That dry air will begin to erode some of the low cloud cover this afternoon…with breaks of sun forming inland. The front will stall as it approaches SE MA…so clouds will remain pretty locked in at the coast for much of the day. With light onshore winds….expect temps to remain in the 50′s with Lwr-mid 60′s farther inland away from the cooler water temps.
Highs are climbing into the upper 50′s and Lwr 60′s this afternoon with breezy NW winds providing a bit of a chill to the air. Winds could gust to 20-30 this afternoon. High pressure will crest over New England tonight with clear skies and diminishing wind. Tonight will feature the best conditions for radiational cooling and the potential for some patchy frost early Monday Morning.
A deck of mid level clouds is pushing through east MA this AM from Northern New England. Brighter skies will be found inland. These are clouds on the move…so sun will return before the AM through…but All of us will begin to turn cloudy this afternoon. Breezy NW winds will keep temps in the Lwr 50′s. Winds turn onshore this afternoon at the coast which will keep temps in the 40′s at the beaches…with clouds and a breeze…definitely chilly.
Awesome weather for the St. Patrick’s day Parades in South Boston, Scituate and Abington. Bright sunshine with SW winds 10-20 mph will push temps into the 60′s nearing 70 this afternoon. With High pressure parked off the coast, This will direct even warmer air into Northern and Central New England, so places like SNH and Northern & Western MA will climb to 70-75 degrees. Records will be broken from Concord, NH to Worcester MA… with Boston’s record of 70 degrees in 2011 in jeopardy as well.
A deck of low- mid level clouds is slowing down the hopes for good weather on St Patrick’s day. Light onshore winds from the NE/SE will keep it quite chilly at the coast near 50 or slightly above.
Winds this morning are out of the SE. SW flow aloft is ejecting quite a moisture plume up the east coast keeping abundant cloud cover ahead of an approaching cold front. The heaviest precipitation has pushed offshore but lingering drizzle and fog in saturated airmass remains making for a very dismal day so far. Showers will try to redevelop moving from SW to NE right around midday as the front begins to push off the coast. Showers will linger into the early afternoon, then winds will shift to the SW behind the front. The drying and warming trend will develop this afternoon
Bright sunshine this morning with high pressure pulling off the Mid-Atlantic coast. Clouds will increase this afternoon ahead of an energized short wave which will push through tonight. Highs temps should be able to climb into the mid 40′s ahead of the increasing PM clouds and west winds.
A weak front is pushing through New England today. Temps have started in the Lwr-mid 30′s…with plenty of sunshine, breezy WNW winds, highs will climb to 40-45 south of Boston, and remain in the upper 30′s NW of the city. High clouds will be increasing from the south during the afternoon as a low tracks well south of the region.
