It was the best of times, it was the worst of times….Springtime in New England can get wedged into that phrase, especially coastal New England. Yesterday we had a nice warm, westerly wind and that pushed many cities & towns well into the 80s (Boston hit 85). Then, while we (and by we I really mean you) were asleep a backdoor front dropped in from Downeast Maine. These backdoor fronts are common in spring as leftover cold air from Nova Scotia can get drawn into eastern New England for a few days before getting shoved back out of here. So you probably know what’s in store for the day…..much cooler temps. Afternoon temps won’t make it out of the 50s under a mostly cloudy.
Tomorrow and again on Thursday we’ll see some recovery to those afternoon temps with highs near 70 (cooler coast) despite a fair amount of clouds each afternoon. Also on Thursday, humidity will start to make its presence known thanks to a southerly wind extending all the way down from the tropics. Eventually this southerly moist flow will be able to pop some showers late in the day on Friday (probably Friday night) and more so on Saturday as a slow moving storm crawls into New England. At this time I would call Saturday a washout (That Sox game Saturday night should be OK though as steadier rain is done by then) with Sunday offering just some isolated showers.
Enjoy your cake.
