The Downhill Slide
Posted by Chris Lambert
Few scattered showers roll through this morning, but much of the rain is light, and not all towns will see wet roads. In fact, the rain chance goes down a bit from late morning, into the early afternoon. That's when the general theme of the day turns to mild, breezy, with a few breaks of sun and temps jumping into the mid 70s.
More showers roll back in near day's end and this evening along and ahead of a cold front. That front pushes just to our south by early tomorrow morning so any lingering showers across Buzzards Bay and the Cape end, leaving dry weather in their wake. With an onshore breeze, the temps are coolest at the coast too.
So how about that weekend? The overall upcoming pattern hasn't changed much, and that means I have to leave the chance for rain in the forecast. With an onshore breeze, you can bet on cool temps as well, generally the lower to middle 60s for highs. The challenge is going to be the timing of the bouts rain that move in as spokes of energy revolve around an upper-level low parked to our west. At times, that energy translates into waves of low pressure near our coast, that'll be responsible for the rain. It won't rain all weekend long, there will be occasional breaks in the action, but it's the timing of those breaks that we'll have to pin down in the upcoming days.
