Winded

Some nice weather yesterday and again today with more sunshine on tap–albeit a bit filtered–and little to no wind. We’ve reached the time of year and will be in this time of year for about 6 months where a day without wind is a day I’m OK with. Even on the coldest of  days without wind can feel better than mild/windy days in January.

No January weather today (or anytime soon) with a mix of sun & clouds. Temps will reach the mid 50s–a bit cool—but with barely any wind, it’s a decent fall day. Partly cloudy skies tonight. Tomorrow the Ghost of Patricia moves our way….

……first in the form of clouds for the morning and midday and then a developing southeasterly wind during the afternoon & evening. Rain looks to join the party but not until very late in the day (after 4pm). Some more thoughts on our midweek storm:

* Looks like an "overnight storm"…from 8pm Wednesday until 5am Thursday. This should keep travel disruption to a minimum. Plan on a few showers on either side of that window though.

* Wind gusts between 20-40 mph along the coastline are likely…again, that 8pm-5am timeline applies. With leaves on the trees some minor tree damage/power loss is possible.

* New England is very dry so flooding rain not anticipated except where leaves are clogging storm drains…could be some minor street flooding late Wednesday night very early Thursday. Most towns pick up close to an inch of rain–bit less on Cape Cod…bit more Worcester Hills/Southwest New Hampshire.

* As for coastal flooding, due to our Supermoon we have some astronomical high tides to deal with so some splashover is possible at the midday high tide tomorrow and again the mid evening high tide tomorrow (South Coast only)

In any event, storm peels out of here Thursday so look for some sunshine and temps to skyrocket into the low 70s and even a touch of humidity. Windy at times. Some sprinkles possible for Pats tailgate but otherwise dry & mild.

Cooler for Halloween. Dry..no snow this year.
