When High Pressure Is Good

High pressure situations tend to bring on anxiety and/or stress.  In the world of weather, it does not!  So while we’re under high pressure’s control the next several days, we’ll see more sun than clouds and little chance for any rain.  

The only downside I see is the fact that temps still run a bit on the cool side, especially at the coast, and certainly there will be a chilly breeze at times along the coast from Thursday to Saturday with the steadiest wind across the Cape.  For those looking to dry out the ball fields and get in all those softball and baseball practices and games, we’re good  for that going into and through the weekend.  That sun will help out dry out the diamonds and fairways too.  

As the Blue H that controls our weather slides to our south on Sunday, the wind kicks to the west and temps jump toward 70!  Yippee!  Marathon Monday continues to look a bit mild, 60s to near 70, although the timing of a front coming through that day may offer the chance for slightly cooler weather if the front is faster.  The front looks mainly dry too, more of chance for more clouds in the mix vs. rain.  The breeze is likely out of the west Monday morning/midday along the 26.2 mile route, pushing the runners along.  Temps start in the 40s in Hopkinton and rise trough the 50s, into the 60s to near 70 by midday along the route.  Good for spectators, but a little too warm for the runners.  

Enjoy the sunshine that’s coming our way!
