Temps Swing, Little Rain

Whoa!  How about that 4:31pm sunset yesterday?  While it’s nice to have some daylight a little earlier in the morning, the trade off is tough with darkness upon us before dinner can even hit the stove. Oh well, at least the weather looks quiet ahead.

Sure, we had a few showers, and even some graupel (snow pellets) mixed in yesterday, but most towns picked up less than a tenth of an inch of rain. Although a few towns across the Cape did pick up closer to a quarter inch. Bottom line, it certainly didn’t help the drought situation out much, and neither will this week. A couple showers drop in Wednesday and Wednesday night, but rain totals generally are under a quarter of an inch again. A few showers may linger into Thursday morning near the coast, and especially over the Cape, but the trend from clouds to sun should take place around midday Thursday.

The story of the week is more the temperature ride we go on from a chillier start today, to a mild day on Tuesday to a big cool down by Saturday. Saturday will be the chilliest day of the week with highs only pressing into the low 40s.  Scattered clouds and a few passing flurries are even possible, but no worries, no need to dust off the shovel…. at least not quite yet.

Enjoy the day, and enjoy the milder air tomorrow with highs in the 60s!
