A widespread killing freeze is likely overnight with many areas spending a few hours in the 20’s around dawn Saturday. After a frosty cold and clear start, Saturday will be filled with sunshine with highs around 50-55. Temps running below normal, but light winds in the sunshine will make for a very nice afternoon.
With this morning’s low lifting north and east of the region, we will dry out as mentioned with North winds wrapping in around the departing low. However thanks to abundant cloud cover temperatures will struggle to reach 60 degrees in most locations with the “Hot Spot” being far southeastern MA where proximity to a warm front will allow temperatures to reach a balmy 65-67 degrees.
With a weak ridge of high pressure still in place, just enough sinking air remains in place so by the afternoon, this deck of clouds will begin to thin inland giving way to increasing sunshine inland where high temps could climb into the Lwr 70’s…especially in western New England who will see the most sun. Clouds will hold longer on the coast, but eventually the sun will emerge this afternoon. Light east winds will keep it cooler at the coast again in the Lwr-mid 60’s. Cape Cod and the Islands will have a mostly cloudy day with the risk of being clipped with some light showers from the midday through afternoon.
Some may be stuck in the clouds for much of the day. On the Cape there is sunshine! A gorgeous morning. I do expect a gradual thinning and lifting to the clouds for partial sun to emerge by the late morning into the early afternoon. I think we are looking at a decent beach day for sky conditions, once the clouds burn off, but wind and waves may be another issue. Any emerging sun will help to fuel the development of afternoon storms.
Morning showers are shifting to the coast this morning. Showers are extending from the North Shore into CT along a stalling front which has pushed just south of Boston and will become hung up across SE MA during the afternoon. Severe weather is not likely in this unseasonably cool airmass, with cloudy damp conditions & light variable winds. Morning showers will begin to wind down during the late morning into the midday with still plenty of cloud through the lunch hour.
it’s a muggy morning across the region with abundant cloud cover with breaks of hazy sunshine. We can expect a warm humid Saturday with mostly dry conditions for most in the morning. By the afternoon, the atmosphere will begin to pop again with scattered showers and thunderstorms.
It’s funny as soon as the humidity starts to build around here…we are always looking for the next exit. While this airmass is no fun to deal with, sometimes you have to think about the […]
Our wave of low pressure along a stalled front south of New England is slowly pulling off the coast. The heaviest rain is shifting east and will be pulling off the coast after midnight. Showers will still linger through the overnight as another batch in N. New Jersey will skirt through CT & RI over night. Sunday morning will start off damp with the low off the coast of Nantucket with low clouds and drizzle.
Very light winds at the surface today. All this means is a pretty quiet day for many of us with morning hazy sunshine giving way to increasing afternoon clouds with highs in the upper 70’s and lwr 80’s. Cooler onshore winds will keep it cooler at the coastline with highs in the Lwr-mid 70’s. Clouds will hold tough on the Cape all day. But watch out for afternoon T’storms and downpours to develop inland
Hazy sunshine is emerging behind this warm front with warming westerly winds. Highs will quickly be climbing into the upper 80’s and Lwr 90’s this afternoon. Dewpoints will be very humid in the upper 60’s and Lwr 70’s. With an approaching cold front this afternoon, there will be enough moisture, lift and instability to trigger scattered afternoon thunderstorms. The area which we have been outlining for the best chance of stronger storms forming or maybe even severe weather is across Eastern MA and RI during the hours of 2-6 PM
