Patience Is A Virtue…With Weather

Light showers and sprinkles around dawn have pushed off the coast. Drier air is on the move! Morning clouds are breaking giving way to increasing sunshine. I expect this erosion of cloud cover to continue […]

Another Fall Beauty…Tracking Midweek Rainstorm

The 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.

Winds of Change This Weekend

The rain and humidity is long gone. The winds of change have moved in today as low pressure deepens and pulls into southern Canada. The winds are providing a refreshing clean and dry airmass with the definite feel of fall. Bright sunshine this morning will give way to building PM cumulus thanks to cooler air aloft and a piece of energy which will move in later today which could trigger a late PM sprinkle or shower farther inland. Highs will average above normal in the mid-uppr 60s with some areas at the coast nearing 70. The winds will provide a chill to the air.

Not a Washout This Weekend…But Times of Clouds & Showers

The 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

Humid Stretch Showing Signs Of Ending

High pressure is close enough to provide enough subsidence for some increasing PM sunshine across the north with skies becoming partly sunny. This stable sinking air should allow for some brightening to the skies this afternoon in the south as well…with more clouds south of the Pike closer to the front.

Winds are extremely light today, but expect them to shift onshore this afternoon for a feeble onshore wind. This will keep it slightly cooler at the beaches in the mid 70’s with many inland areas in the upper 70’s and Lwr 80’s, especially if we break into any period of sunshine…which I am expecting to develop this afternoon.

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.

Hotter Sunday, Scattered PM T’Storms Monday

´╗┐It’s getting mighty hot out there today! Temps on their way to 90-95 degrees with breezy WSW winds. The only sea breeze you will find today will be along the south coast keeping those beaches in the 80’s. A muggy summery evening with skies becoming partly cloudy after midnight with some patchy fog at the south coast with the increasing dewpoints.

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.

Looking for a Better Week of Summer Weather

Morning Low clouds are thinning and breaking for some increasing midday and afternoon sunshine. Low clouds linger a bit longer at the coast…especially on the Cape. West winds along with increasing hazy sun will give a warm muggy to feel to the air this afternoon with highs climbing into the 70’s and Lwr 80’s. Light winds will mean a seabreeze at the coast

Bruins, Dads, Summer…Oh Yeah! Time to Celebrate!

Highs will climb into the Lwr 80’s with a warm humid feel. We are tracking a shortwave which will be pushing south into New England. A cold front will push through the region during the afternoon and likely fire up some scattered convection in the form of a few showers or thunderstorms. The best chance of these showers and storms will be around 2 PM-6 PM before exiting the coast tonight.
