Rain Today, Gone Tomorrow

Showers move in during the morning today, leave late in the day, and won’t come back for a while.  The long range pattern is dry, likely right into Marathon Monday.  Enjoy that sunshine ahead.  

First things first, we need to get through this wet weather today.  Showers roll through Worcester County early this morning, but take a while to get into Boston.  In fact, the first half of the morning commute is likely dry across eastern Mass with the chance of shower not moving in close to the coast until at least 8 or 9am.  After that, we’re fair game for showers.  Showers are most widespread from late morning, through mid afternoon, dropping a quarter to a third of an inch of rain across many towns.  Enough to water that grass seed you likely threw down in hopes of greening up the lawn.  

Rain ends from west to east this afternoon with the last drops in Worcester likely ending around 2-3pm, Boston by 5pm and the Cape and Islands by 7-8pm. Give or take an hour or so to these timelines, but the bottom line is, we play ball at Fenway Park with first pitch temps running in the lower 50s.  Go Sox. 

As skies clear out tonight, temps cool, and our dry, coolish pattern settles in.  Get use to two words this week: COOLER COAST.  As the onshore breeze prevails this week along the coast temps there run in the upper 40s to near 50 while running into the mid to upper 50s inland.  The pattern is all jammed up and as high pressure gets stuck near/over us, we’ll stay dry into the weekend.  That high edges south of us by Sunday and Monday, allowing for more of a west wind and temps near 70!  Although, it may be cooler at the coast again, especially on Marathon Monday.  60s to near 70 is warm for the runners, but the spectators won’t mind.  With lots of dry times ahead, you’ll need to water that grass seed!
