Wet to Dry to Wet

 Umbrella weather…. day 3.

Another damp and dreary start to the day means more wet roads and a slow go for the morning commute.  While we still have showers around this morning, they won’t be as heavy as what we saw yesterday afternoon and last night.  That was a good soaking with many towns from Plymouth, through the Cape and Islands, picking up 2-4″ of rain.  For the rest of us, it was a steady, beneficial rain with 0.50-1.50″ fairly widespread.

Morning showers start to lose their grip by 10:00AM, although a few leftover, isolated showers linger until noon.  While I do expect dry weather this afternoon, clouds are slow to break with some peeks of sun possible north and west of Boston late day. Highs range from the upper 50s and lower 60s. The breeze is still active with winds commonly gusting over 20mph along the coast.

Friday looks better with sunshine to start, some afternoon clouds near the coast and highs back into the mid 60s.

So what about the weekend?

Although patchy sprinkles/drizzle is possible Saturday morning, we have a better chance for more widespread showers mid afternoon, through Saturday evening.  It looks like at least another 1/2″ or so of rain is a good bet. 

The rain is done by Sunday morning however, allowing for a nice, breezy Fall-like day Sunday with highs in the lower 60s.  If you’re joining the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, this year will be dry with temps in the 50s!  http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/MakingStridesAgainstBreastCancer/MSABCCY14NE?pg=entry&fr_id=62534
