Certainly felt more like the first day of March than May. Cool breeze off the water, plenty of rain through midday...yeesh.
Hey, I'll be the first to tell you that there is no *bad* weather, just inconvienient and, on rare occasion, violent. Today it was mightily inconvienient if you had errands to run or had to walk around downtown.
We'll turn from inconvienient to downright envious in the coming days. Warm air will come to a screeching halt as it enters Western New England. Highs there will soar to the 60s, 70s, 80s over the next three days. It's not fair, but noone ever said the weather was.
Look, everyone wants that warm, sunny weather we had over the last two months, but the weather pattern we have in place won't open the door. Instead, we fight with the clouds, the sea breeze and the 50s. Reason for the disparity? That tenacious block over Greenland. In the past couple of months, we've been able to seek good company and side with the warmer side of the forecast. This time, however, the block is in a slightly different place, and we side with the Nova Scotia and Maine: cool, maritime air.
Won't shake out until we get to the END of the weekend. Highs then should nudge 60 by Sunday - just in time for the Walk for Hunger.
Please join us for the Walk for Hunger on Boston Common this Sunday morning. Thousands of Massachusetts families go hungry everyday, and this is your chance to make a difference in their lives. The Walk for Hunger is the oldest pledge walk in the country, and has raised millions in years past thanks to the generous donations of people from all over the Commonwealth. For more information go to the Project Bread website.
