National Weather Service
Here are the snowfall totals from Rob Macedo, the SKYWARN coordinator for the National Weather Service in Taunton.
The National Weather Service has confirmed that a microburst hit Wareham and Onset Tuesday night, just a day after Hurricane Sandy.
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.
Sunshine and light SW winds will allow temps to warm up quickly this morning into the afternoon. Highs will be climbing into the mid-upper 70’s inland. Winds will be light enough to turn onshore during the afternoon…a sea breeze will keep temps in the Lwr 70s at the beach. High clouds may increase a bit during the afternoon…but just an all around stellar day outside.
The National Weather Service has preliminarily confirmed that that microburst hit part of Taunton during Friday’s storms.
The National Weather Service in Taunton has confirmed that a tornado touched down in Plymouth last week.
The 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
Temps are expected to surge this afternoon with sunny skies with highs climbing into the 80’s nearing 90.
The lack of heavy snow or rain from our record warm and dry winter is causing river levels to fall at an alarming rate for this time of year.
High pressure in place across the mid Atlantic is pulling offshore and will begin to wrap in a breezy SW wind today and start the warm up with highs climbing into the 50’s.
