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.
Look 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 .
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.
Clouds will be in place through about 10 or 11 AM…before a sharp clearing line will be working towards the coast by lunchtime. Temps have been cooling behind the front this morning into the 50′s and Lwr 60′s. Once the sunshine comes out in full this afternoon, temps will give another run towards 70-72 degrees, but will start to fall later in the day with the lowering sun angles and breezy NW winds pushing in the much cooler air from Canada which will settle in tonight.
Storms brought damaging winds and flooding rains through Massachusetts Tuesday night.
A milder SSE wind is in place this morning with temps in the 50′s and Lwr 60′s. Early Breaks of morning sun are fading to Mostly Cloudy skies. Highs will climb to near 70-75 by late in the day with mainly dry, muggy and breezy conditons for Eastern MA. Not a bad day on the Cape. Winds will pick up from the south this afternoon with gusts to 30 mph.
Our computer models continue in a westward shift with the track of Tropical Storm this morning. Yesterday, models leaned towards taking the storm into the FL panhandle. Today, they seem to be favoring a track into Louisiana. There is still a great deal of uncertainty with the eventual outcome of landfall…somewhere between Pensacola FL and New Orleans Early Wed AM. How strong? Cat 2 likely. 100+ mph…but could be stronger depending upon the track and the depth of the warm water the storm tracks over. Cat 3 can not be ruled out. Storm Surge will be dependent upon the strength of the storm as seas/waves become bigger with deeper pressure falls and stronger winds. Where ever this storm hits it will come with significant storm surge flooding and damaging winds. All of this happening on the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The path into New Orleans is the worst direction a hurricane can take for the city 6 feet under sea level. Levees could be tested again. All we can do is hope for a shift to the East…but then Mobile, Biloxi and Pensacola are the target. Answers to strength, track, surge, impact will come in the coming days. For now…all we can do is monitor.
SW winds continue to pump oppressive humidity into New England with dewpoints again ranging from 70-76 degrees. Hazy sun and clouds are warming temps up again into the 80′s, with the potential for a few Lwr 90′s this afternoon. I do not expect the kind of heat we had yesterday due to a few more clouds. Plus a welcome breeze today will pick up this afternoon with gusts over 20 mph to help to stir the stagnant air and make the day more tolerable.
We will be watching clouds advancing ahead of an approaching low up the coast Tuesday. Skies will be clouding over with a chance of rain or showers on the Cape by late afternoon and for the coast by evening.
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
