With all that wind out there, you'd think there would be a train load of cold air coming in tonight.
Apparently, all that wind was for naught. Certainly, the temps did cool off, but the serious cold from last week...remains in the record books (for the record, it was cold enough for a record low temperature at Blue Hill).
Anyway, we have a two day respite in the weather pattern. Some nice, sunny, mild days ahead. The only caveat will be along the coast with the southeast breeze. Temps will hover NEAR 60 with a cool breeze off the water. With plenty of sun, however, the cool air will be offset...until late in the afternoon when the sun goes down.
Long range, we're eying a storm for the Friday/Saturday timeframe. Some wind, some rain...and possibly some downpours. That's not yet written in stone, however. The heavy rain is still questionable only because we're not certain we will tap into the plume of tropical moisture sitting offshore. If we keep it away, we'll have run-of-the-mill rain. If we bring it in, 1-2 inches of water is not out of the question.
