The haves and have nots yesterday in terms of the rainfall across much of southern New England. While some towns got pounded with heavy rain, others saw just a couple tenths of an inch. Winners of the beneficial rain include northern MA/Southern NH and then again along the south coast of New England. The highest totals came from northern Worcester county with Ashburnham at 4.2″ and Royalston picking up 3.6″. Worcester saw nearly 2″ but by the time you skipped to Boston and many surrounding towns, less than 0.5″ was common.
In the wake of the rain, it’s a mild and murky start to the day with locally dense fog and areas of low clouds. Even a few spot showers linger across far Southeast Mass, mainly near Buzzards Bay and the Cape and Islands. The clouds slowly transition to some sun by the afternoon with the brightest skies northwest of Boston and the cloudiest across southeast Mass. Highs run from the upper 70s to mid 80s, warmest where it’s the sunniest.
Mid to late week features more temps in the 80s and limited rain chances. Yes, it’ll be warm, but also with lower humidity beyond today. Fall officially arrives with the equinox Thursday morning, but certainly won’t feel like it by the afternoon with highs in the low to mid 80s. There will likely be a few scattered showers Friday night/early Saturday morning with a cold front, and that front means business! On the flip side of it, 60s for highs and a gusty breeze over the weekend. Upper 60s Saturday, low 60s Sunday with nighttime lows in the 40s with some mid to upper 30s in the burbs likely Sunday night… how do you like those numbers? Now go pick some apples!
Have a great day!
