We've Been Here Before
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Little deja vu today? Feel like you've been in this weather situation before (wet start to workweek)?
You're not paranoid or delusional. We were in this same boat last week (albeit a little drier on Monday). And the finish to the week will be the same - brighter, sunnier. Heck, if the weekend weather holds, we could again be near 80 both Saturday and Sunday (still not ready to guarantee anything...sea breeze and clouds could play spoiler).
So you're probably thinking the pattern still hasn't changed. Well, it has, but we're stuck in a moment...that we can't get out of (sorry, had to finish the song lyrics). As we head into summer, the weather pattern slows down. Sometimes, when fronts/storms stall, they stall for days. That's the case this week. We'll just have to wait for the kick in the pants to push things along on Thursday.
The greatest chance of heavy rain will be in Western Massachusetts during the next two days. With the front stalled almost directly over the Connecticut River Valley, the road is cleared and paved for the rain to play Follow the Leader. In upwards of 2-3 inches of additional water may fall there! For us, I expect nearly another inch of rain the next two days.
Try and stay dry.
