Cold Wind Blows This Weekend
Better Weather Ahead...But Not Out Of The WoodsLook for a breezy mix of sun and clouds Monday. A few instability showers may pop across the north where there will be lingering clouds along with the upper low which will continue to pull away. Partly to Mostly sunny skies in the south with highs climbing into the upper 60's and Lwr 70's. Winds could gust to 30-35 mph with SW winds tomorrow .
All Good Things Come To An End...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.
Cold Air Moving In For the Weekend...Snow On the CapePartly sunny skies this morning will give way to increasing cloudiness as the front pushes through this afternoon. This front may even trigger a brief rain or snow shower...but there is plenty of dry air in the low levels to keep today mostly dry. Highs will climb into the upper 30's and lwr 40's by midday before falling this afternoon behind the front.
Mild Surge of Air Ahead Before A Return To "Normal"Abundant high-mid level cloud cover will continue to stream through the region creating a cloudy appearance to the sky...but there will be breaks of sun. How much sun we see will determine how warm we eventually will become by this afternoon. A more active wind with gusts to 20-30 mph will bring temps into the lwr-mid 60's by this afternoon.
Dodging The Downpours Today...With A Look At The WeekendRain will be filling in for the rest of the morning. Periodic heavy rain will track up the coast through the afternoon and evening delivering a widespread 1-2" of rainfall with locally heavier amounts unto 3" in areas which end up seeing more persistent pockets of rain track through mixed in with quieter moments. The peak of the rain will be from 12 PM-12 AM...but a few downpours after midnight can not be ruled out even though there will be a trend to taper to showers overnight through early Thursday.
Tuesday Transition Before Wednesday Afternoon/Evening Rain The clouds will begin to thin this afternoon for some partial sun to emerge. A breeze from the SW will allow temps to rebound back into the mid-upper 60's with any breaks of PM sun. The Warmest spot will be SE MA and locations towards the coast.
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.
Tracking A Few Showers Before An Improving Weekend.The cold front which helped to trigger strong to severe storms late yesterday across the Pioneer Valley has weakened and stalled over southeast MA. This cold front will likely become the trigger for a few scattered showers or thunderstorms to form later this afternoon across Bristol, Plymouth and Barnstable counties. These areas, including along the south coast have dewpoints in the upper 60's to near 70 which will help to fuel the scattered afternoon convection.
More Clouds, More Warmth, Next Weekend?We are socked in the clouds this Sunday with cool onshore NE winds keeping temps running below normal. Very chilly at the coast with areas of drizzle and mist this morning. Temps at the beaches will likely remain in the 40's and lwr 50's. Farther inland a better chance of some warming into the 50's and Lwr 60's. with mid 60's in the CT river valley. Mostly cloudy conditions will prevail, but there is the potential for a few breaks of sun in any thinner overcast this afternoon inland.
Take A Walk...On the Mild Side!High altitude clouds spilling over the ridge into New England under a NW flow aloft which will once again create a milky appearance to the afternoon sky. Temps on the rise today with highs climbing into the Lwr 60's, with light SE winds keeping in in the 50's at our beaches. Sunday will be similar in temperature with clouds on the increase ahead of a warm front which will provide the surge of warmth behind it across the Northeast.
