A simple story ahead with high pressure anchored here in New England until Sunday. You can plan mostly sunny days & mainly clear nights. Our temperatures today will reach the low & mid 40s and then take a run at 50 by tomorrow afternoon. A cool front looks to drop into New England on Saturday sending afternoon temps back into the low 40s. See? Simple!
Sunday and beyond?.....Not so much. The pattern becomes active and a number of storms will take a swipe at us for the next 2-3 weeks! They won't all be snow or rain, likely a mix of both and the first one on the docket looks to be just that.
Here are some early thoughts:
*Storm affects region in the Sunday-Monday timeframe
*Look for patchy light snow/flurries on Sunday afternoon. Little to no accumulation expected
*Patriots game will feature flurries and/or sprinkles--not expecting any heavy rain or snow
*Monday will see the light mix of precipitation become steadier & heavier by afternoon & evening
*Looks like mainly a rain event for coastal cities & towns with snow farther inland
*Some plowing of the snow appears likely right now---along I-495 AND north of the MA Pike greatest risk of plowable snow
*Possible 2nd storm next Wednesday--more on that later!
Heat and a bit of humidity fed a strong - and sometimes severe - line of thunderstorms today. By the time the dinner hour rolled around (6pm-ish), the storms had consolidated into a line. Everyone got a drink of water and a big drop in temperatures - some falling nearly 20 degrees in minutes!
Well, we had a lot of clouds this afternoon, but at least not a lot of rain. Sure a few showers were out there, scattered about, but hopefully they didn't ruin any plans you had with dad. Temps made it into the mid to upper 70s, which is close to the average for this time of year. In fact, the whole 7-day forecast is within 5 degrees of average each and every day. That means lots of upper 70s and lower 80s on the board. Not bad being average this time of year, huh?
Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there, and to my dad as well. So what's on tap for the day? Golf, grilling, just hanging out? Whatever it is, all and all, it's still a pretty good day for dad weather-wise. I wish I could say the Father's Day forecast exactly repeats Saturday, but we do have a few late afternoon showers to track.
After 8" of rain in the last two weeks, we needed/deserved this one! What a day with temps just shy of 80 degrees, low humidity, plenty of sunshine and a refreshing breeze. We'll trade those sunny skies in for mainly clear skies tonight as temperatures fall to near 60 in Boston, but in the upper 40s and lower 50s in the suburbs.
