We’ve got quite the range of morning lows to kick start your workweek. Clear skies and calm winds made for fantastic supermoon viewing, but it also means we’ve got a 25° temperature range throughout the viewing area this morning. Low-lying spots are starting the day in the low-20s, and here in Boston we’re in the low-40s. While you may want the winter coat this morning, you can ditch it by lunchtime! Warm air continues to push in from our SW, and high pressure holds on for one more day! This means we’ll continue our dry and comfortable stretch of weather that we saw yesterday. Highs today might make you think we’re back to early September, as we soar into the low to mid-60s.
Our next frontal system continues to track up the Eastern Seaboard today, causing cloud cover to thicken up from the SW this evening into tonight (so supermoon viewing probably won’t be as great as what we saw over the weekend). Rain showers are likely tomorrow, with the bulk of our wet weather moving in by the mid-morning through tomorrow evening. We could see some pockets of heavy rainfall with this system, and most of us should grab 0.50-1.00” of rain by tomorrow after dinnertime. We could see a few showers continue into early Wednesday, with cloud cover thinning out into Wednesday afternoon.
Astronomically high tides return tomorrow, in combination with onshore winds as low pressure moves up the coast. Minor coast flooding is possible, and the primary threat to any coastal flooding will be tomorrow at 11:07 AM in Boston. We’ll be monitoring Wednesday’s high tide at 11:59 AM, but with winds having shifted to out of the NW, coastal flooding should not be as big of a concern Wednesday as it will be this Tuesday.
Temperatures trend very mild throughout this workweek, with nearly every day well above our average lows (now in low-50s)! Plus our morning lows don’t look to be as chilly as what we saw a number of mornings last week.
Enjoy our mild Monday weather!
