The Better Half
Posted by Chris Lambert
Inside Rte. 128, down through the Cape and the Islands, we were stuck in the clouds and occasional showers yesterday. Well today, we finish the 2nd half of the weekend on the brighter side.
We do battle a patch of low clouds moving through parts of eastern Mass this morning, but that'll break up as the morning progresses. We'll also track mid to high level clouds off to the west and southwest of us. Those clouds filter out the sunshine more and more this afternoon, yielding a milky appearance to the sky as clouds start to win the battle, but at least no rain drops fall from those clouds. Highs this afternoon range from the low 70s near the coast to the upper 70s inland.
Partial sunshine on Monday fades quickly behind thickening clouds and a few afternoon showers showing up south of the Pike, especially across Southeast Mass. The higher chance for showers continues into the evening as an area of low pressure approaches from the south. That low is quick moving, in fact, by midnight, the rain ends, and early clouds break for sunshine and a pleasant afternoon on Tuesday.
The nice weather continues through the end of the week, and with highs near 80 and lows near 60, the comfort factor is about as good as it gets.
