Splitting Hairs

 Nice little stretch of weather we have settled into with essentially dry weather and seasonal temps. As a forecaster, there isn’t too much heavy lifting when preparing the deets—no concern of rain/snow lines or rain-to-snow ratios or calculating bitter wind chills. Rather, just trying to figure where and when a sea breeze will set up.

That’s what we are looking at the next two days with High Pressure just about on top of us. This area of High Pressure supplies the sunshine each day and locales away from the chilly ocean will find the mid 60s today while areas along the coast reach the low 60s. The dry air combined with some wind inland may lead to an elevated fire risk this afternoon–avoid burning when outside. Tomorrow we have more sunshine on tap but despite the strong April sunshine our temps will be a little cooler everywhere—mid 50s at the coast and upper 50s inland.

Friday is our next day where the forecast is more than just sea breezes as a weak area of Low Pressure passes through New England. This “storm” will produce clouds but very little in the way of rain–perhaps a few showers during the morning hours. In any event, we are right back into the sunshine & mild weather for the weekend.

As of now, Marathon Monday is looking mostly dry—certainly the morning will be—as a storm approaches the region late in the day which will throw some showers into metro Boston by 4-5pm. Low humidity and temps in the 40s/50s are likely.
