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.
All About The Storm....A milder SSE wind is in place this morning with temps in the 50's and Lwr 60's. Early Breaks of morning sun are fading to Mostly Cloudy skies. Highs will climb to near 70-75 by late in the day with mainly dry, muggy and breezy conditons for Eastern MA. Not a bad day on the Cape. Winds will pick up from the south this afternoon with gusts to 30 mph.
Taking the Good With The Bad...Before It Gets WorseThe clouds extend across all of eastern MA into NH. Meanwhile there is bright sunshine from Worcester west. After a cloudy morning, as the low begins to pull away, I expect some of the drier weather from the west to begin to work eastward eroding the cloud deck with drying NW winds and some increasing afternoon sun. Clouds will likely hold all day across NH, NE MA and right at the eastern Beaches. Where there is sunshine temps will be climbing into the lwr-mid 70's..nearing 80- in Hartford, CT. Where there are clouds...the temps will remain in the 60's
Big Cool Down Before Spring Warm UpWinds 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
Burst of Snow in a Nice WeekendBright 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.
Time to Exhale and Enjoy the Weekend WeatherSunny 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.
Another Fall Beauty...Tracking Midweek RainstormThe 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.
Not a Washout This Weekend...But Times of Clouds & ShowersThe 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
Fall Feel For Football Sunday, But Summer Not Over Yet! High pressure firmly in place over Maine is supplying plenty of dry air into the low levels with light NE winds. I am expecting the morning clouds to begin to break and give way to increasing afternoon sunshine. Temps are starting off warmer thanks to the increased cloud cover overnight. Highs will be climbing into the mid 60's inland and remain in the lwr 60's at the coast with the onshore winds.
Autumnal Preview For Last Weekend Of SummerWinds are diminishing today as high pressure slides towards us, but the cooler air will continue to push into New England from Canada helping to keep highs around 60-65 degrees today with sun-filled skies. It should be in the mid 60's along the south coast, while most of us will remain in the Lwr 60's close to 10 degrees below normal for this time of year
Rain Shifts From West Today to East TomorrowThe closer to the coast you are, the drier you will be thanks to high pressure off shore. Despite a little light rain early, a good portion of the day should remain dry with temps in the mid 70's. Hard to completely rule out showers completely today for eastern sections...as a few showers could break off the main batch out west from time to time. Either way, a cloudy, humid and tolerable Sunday if you have to be outdoors in eastern MA.
Little Relief From The Summer HeatBest chance of any thunderstorm activity now will be from 6pm-12 am, and any storms that form could contain very heavy downpours, frequent lightning, damaging winds and some small hail. The atmosphere is very ripe in extreme Southern New England (parts of CT, RI and SE Mass and farther south towards the Mid Atlantic). So those would be the most likely areas for any severe weather later this evening.
