A Simple Message
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
Once upon a time in my college courses, I was taught to develop a weather message to deliver to the people. Some days that message is screaming--I.E...major snowstorm....record heat and other times (like tonight) it can be a challenge as the weather maps are taking a snooze.
Looking into the upcoming week, it's a quiet week with no big (or small) storms on the way. Monday is a carbon copy of today with a mix of sun & clouds. Temperatures will be seasonal--morning readings in the 40s and afternoon highs in the low to mid 60s. The only issue I see this week is that a warm front will try to move through New England late Tuesday-Wednesday. The fun warmth never makes it but the result will be a lot of clouds and even a few sprinkles late in the day Tuesday and again early Wednesday morning. In fact, in this battle of warm versus cool I think the cool actually wins by Wednesday with many towns stuck in the 50s for afternoon highs. After this failed warm-up attempt, it's back to a mix of sun & clouds by late week.
It should be noted that the tropics are trying to get their act together. A tropical system is likely to form near Hispaniola by midweek and it's quite likely a tropical storm (to be named Sandy) will move into the Bahamas by next weekend. After that, there are some signs this tropical system will work along the east coast---very unusual but something that will have to be watched by late next weekend.
