Starting Off Bright
Posted by Chris Lambert
The new workweek starts off with a change of skies as Sunday's clouds have moved out to sea and sunshine starts our day. There is enough instability around to pop up fair weather clouds this afternoon, but the moisture is limited, so no rain is expected. With an onshore breeze, mostly sunny skies prevail at the coast as those fair weather clouds drift inland. Highs today range from the mid 70s at the coast to near 80 inland.
Tomorrow is similar, however, more clouds fill in, even at the coast, late in the afternoon as an area of low pressure off the Carolina coastline moves north. Right now, most of the rain stays offshore, but it's not out of the question that some of these rain showers move into southeast Mass near day's end, or in the evening.
Wednesday and beyond... the general forecast is to have disturbances move into New England from the northwest. That provides us with the opportunity for pop-up showers and storms each day. No one day stands out as a washout, so if it's your vaca week, I wouldn't get too down on the rain drops on the 7day forecast. We'll still have plenty of dry stretches through those days, especially in the morning hours, just keep an eye to the sky in the afternoon.
