Scattered showers have been crossing through the region this morning. These will be hit or miss showers which will pretty much persist for much of the day it appears in varying intensity. Highs in the Lwr-mid 60’s
Our pesky low wich brought a week in the clouds with periodic rain is pulling far enough away today that temperatures are finally able to warm up. Morning clouds and fog are breaking for partial sunshine and an overall pleasant Saturday. Temps are warming inland into the Lwr to Mid 70’s, while eastern areas, especially at the coast will hold in the 60’s.
Heavy Rain pushing through the CT and Pioneer Valleys this morning is shifting east for the midday and afternoon hours. Strong Southerly winds aloft are advecting warm moist air into the northeast. A cold front from Canada is pushing south into New England today…bringing colder air behind it. This will create perfect overrunning and lift to Midday-afternoon showers and downpours to develop. SE winds will try to push temps into the lwr 60’s south before the rain moves in…once the rain falls…it is 50’s for all!
Plenty of low clouds and fog at the coast this morning. Clouds are already breaking inland giving way to some partial sun thanks to high pressure off the coast. Winds are light out of the SSE with plenty of cloud cover around today. Still, any breaks will be appreciated and help turn this Saturday into the pick of the weekend with dry and mild conditions with highs climbing into the upper 60s and lwr 70s away from the coast. Breaks of sun are likely through the early afternoon with clouds spreading from west to east from New York state to end the day on the cloudy side.
Morning sunshine with SW winds will give temps a boost well into the 60’s and lwr 70’s for highs today. Clouds will begin to build with the heating of the day. Expect widespread scattered showers and thunderstorms to develop this afternoon with lightning, small hail, gusty winds and downpours.
A deck of midlevel clouds will be thinning this morning giving way to sunny to partly sunny skies this Sunday. High pressure is pulling off the coast and be wrapping in a warmer moist air mass into the region today. Highs will be similar to yesterday with temps in the 62-64 inland and 50’s to near 60 at the coast. We will enjoy midday sunshine before the clouds increase this afternoon thanks to blowoff from the tops of these storms.
We will be tracking that ribbon of rain and snow currently pushing into the Great Lakes. That is the warm front or the leading edge of the warm air mass that is beginning to spread eastward. By dawn tomorrow, the precipitation will be arriving at the coldest point of the day around sunrise.
The Schools’ superintendent Mary Ellen Johnson announced that adults will no longer be allowed to use the high school’s lockers and showers during school hours.
