Ease On Down The Road

A whole traveling to be done this week so the last thing we need is a storm–rain or snow–and thankfully we don’t have any storms in the forecast! In fact, except for a few rain showers Saturday Morning we have a dry forecast right through the Holiday Weekend. This is a far cry from last year at this time when I was blogging about the likelihood of snow around Thanksgiving.

We did have a decent storm take a swipe at Eastern New England overnight with some locally heavy rain on the Cape/Islands (1-2" of rain) but that system is pulling away and allowing cold High Pressure to take over. This area of High pressure is loaded with dry air so we get sunshine for a few days but the blue H came from Canada which means it will be cold air. Temps today will struggle to maintain–holding near 40 all day and then drop like a rock this evening (Plan on a cold game at Gillette). Adding insult to injury will be wind making it feel like the 30s for much of the day (wind chills in the 20s for tail gate). At least it’s sunny.

More sunshine tomorrow & again on Wednesday and thankfully we can get rid of that wind so being outside is manageable. Temps are chilly, only reaching the mid & upper 40s Tuesday & again on Wednesday. On Thursday we give thanks for our blessings as well as milder air! Temps will reach the 50s under a partly sunny sky and even warmer for Friday with many cities & towns in the low 60s!

Colder weather returns for the upcoming weekend. Enjoy your Holiday Week & safe travels!
