Mondays are sluggish enough. Add in that it’s a Monday after a holiday and we bring in cool, wet weather, and you can forget about it…. the struggle is real today.
Rain overspreads much of the area between 7-9am today, creating a cool, damp and dreary day with a slow go on the roads. Rain will be steady, if not heavy at times from mid morning to mid afternoon, totaling about 0.50-1.00" of water by the time it’s over and done with. Sorry teachers, those kiddos with candy-filled backpacks are stuck inside with indoor recess today. Highs reach the mid 40s on average, although a few towns in southeast Mass crack 50 degrees. Rain tapers off this evening between 5-7pm for most.
The rain ends, but the wind cranks up, huffing and puffing late overnight and tomorrow. At times those gusts hit 40-50mph. That may be enough to rattle the house a bit and wake you up overnight. Highs near 50 tomorrow with partly sunny skies.
Winds kick to the south and southwest Wednesday and Thursday, allowing for warmer air to move in. 60s are in the forecast by Thursday and Friday.
Longer range, some chilly air likely enters New England by Sunday, into early next week. Overnight lows in the teens and 20s are possible then, so still way too early to plant those cold sensitive plants.
