Last night’s showers have clear out, leaving lots of sunshine to start this Sunday morning and a great start for the Walk For Hunger. Hope you can come down and join us and the 40,000 expected walkers! http://www.projectbread.org/
Despite the dry start with tons of sunshine, we’ll watch clouds build mid to late morning as another spoke of energy and very cold air aloft, moves across Southern New England. That’ll help spark a few scattered passing showers and storms in the afternoon. Although I don’t expect storms to reach severe criteria, gusty winds and small hail are possible in a few of the more potent storms. Rain chance this afternoon runs 40% so not all towns get wet, and despite the instability of the atmosphere, some dry air trying to mix in may limited that t’storm development. Don’t expect a washout of an afternoon, but I’d keep the umbrella handy.
Monday and Tuesday feature overall quiet weather with temps in the low to mid 60s and just a slight risk of a pop up shower or storm in eastern Mass.
Longer range, Wednesday and Thursday look good. Friday and beyond become a challenge.
You’ll notice a put upper 40s and 50s on the board for Friday and Saturday with the chance of showers. At this point, it looks like a front will be stuck near New England or over New England as a few batches of showers and storms occasionally ride along it. That front will separate the 40s and an onshore wind to the north and the 70s-80 to the south. It’s a dramatic temp change over a short distance so those numbers I put up are subject to change. Giving the fact the this time of year favors that cool ocean air overachieving and warm fronts staying south, I’ll stick to the cooler side for now.
