Change Of Direction
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
Ok......that was a nice little return to early spring weather today. Many coastal cities & towns were ~30 degrees cooler this afternoon compared to yesterday afternoon---temps in the low 50! It was all because of the wind direction. That wind was blowing off the chilly ocean for much of the day (Yesterday it was coming from New York state) and that means sea breeze. Thankfully, it's short-lived.
Overnight, we'll see that wind swing back into the south and that will be with us for much of Thursday. That means we warm it back up. Not record warmth like we saw Monday but many towns away from the ocean climb back toward 70. Here's what I'm thinking for afternoon temps:
The coast will still be cooler than inland but at least it won't have that chill in the air. Plan on more sunshine. In fact, our dry weather looks to continue into the start of the weekend. Saturday will be the *outdoor* day with clouds on the increase but only a small chance of afternoon sprinkles. Those sprinkles will be the front edge of a big rainstorm. That storm will arrive on Sunday and stay until late Monday. Right now, the potential is there for 1-2" of beneficial rain during those 2 days. More on that as we approach the weekend.
