Got a big, spiraling low pressure system well dug in across the Northeast and Southeast Canada.
What, you didn't notice it?
It's easy to miss. Our weather was fair, our temps seasonable, and in the wake of the big deluge, lot of folks are saying let it be.
However, this pattern is markedly different from the one we've seen in the past few months, and that needs to be underscored. There's a lot more opportunties for showers, the weather systems are moving swiftly, and if we hit 60 in the coming week to ten days, it will be an exception.
Next item up for bids is a weak shower-maker on Thursday. We have a chance at sneaking in a 60 degree day before it arrives on Thursday afternoon, but I'm NOT confident we'll all see it. Cooling winds from the southeast will hold the numbers down near the coast, and advancing clouds make it hard for the sun to do its work. This isn't a big rain-maker either, but some spots could squeak out a quarter inch of water.
This weekend we're still playing cat-and-mouse with another weak system. Showers will threaten late Saturday into Sunday, but neither day looks washed out. Clouds will probably nag us both days, so we're not talking a lot of heat either. Just want to set the scene, more details to follow.
