These are indeed trying times and an unsettled weather pattern that is just relentless. It's a pattern we saw back in February-March. Thankfully this time of year the strength of this pattern is much weaker than the winter. Despite that fact, check out this stat:
*Normal May AND June (61 days) rainfall for Boston is 7.17"
*Rainfall in Boston the first 11 DAYS of June is 6.60"
That's a lot of rain---and you know that. unfortunately we have even more rain on the way as a June nor'easter heads this way. This new storm will take aim on New England tomorrow afternoon (arrival 2-3pm) and again on Friday. By the time the storm departs late Friday afternoon most cities & towns will pick up 2-4" of more rain.
Backing up to today offers some leftovers from yesterday's storm. A lot of clouds, some sprinkles and brief showers (lasting less than 2 minutes) and seasonably cool temps with afternoon highs in the upper 60s to low 70s.
The good news is that these storms are moving along at a decent pace so the upcoming weekend offers sunshine on Saturday and partly sunny skies on Sunday.
