Windswept Rainfall Tonight…Colder Air Returns…But For How Long?

Cool filtered sunshine this morning with increasing high altitude clouds will give way to mostly cloudy skies this afternoon and warming temperatures into the 40’s. High pressure off the coast will wrap in warming SW winds…but the lack of sunshine will make it feel cooler. Keep a close eye on the radar today because we have quite a bit of rain just to our SW which is heading right to us for tonight. Clouds will thicken in advance of the rain this afternoon with showers arriving in western New England around sunset. Showers will be reaching the coast between 6-8 PM…

Warm, Hazy, Humid Weekend Ends With T’Storms

High pressure to our south is wrapping in warm humid light SW winds and providing enough dry sinking air that much of the weekend will remain dry..but humid with highs in the mid-upper 80’s…Near 80 on the Cape. As the high pulls off the coast Sunday, a better chance for more widespread scattered storms will develop late tomorrow in the west.
