Planes, Trains & Automobiles

State Trooper: Do you have any idea how fast you were going?
Del: Funny enough, I was just talking to my friend about that. Our speedometer has melted and as a result it's very hard to see with any degree of accuracy exactly how fast we were going.
Well, I certainly have good news this week. No matter the mode of transportation, we won't have to deal with too many weather related travel issues. Not only here in the Northeast, but also in the Midwest, the Plains, and the Southeast. Notice I left out the West Coast? The Pacific Northwest will have issues with rain, wind and mountain snow the next several days. If you do have flights out that way, hopefully you make out better than Neal and Del.
Around New England, the trend is to keep it quiet, and in our area, keep it dry with temps trending up a bit. Highs hit the upper 40s this afternoon and mid 50s by Thursday and Friday. More clouds are around on Wednesday, but the big ole area of high pressure that dominates our weather the next couple of days, is strong enough to keep the big ocean storm to our southeast, offshore. A breeze picks up across the Cape and Islands Wednesday, but that's about it.
A cold front comes crashing in on Saturday with a couple rain showers, and a rush of cold air pouring in by late in the day and at night. It'll certainly feel like winter by the 2nd half of the weekend as highs on Sunday only reach the middle to upper 30s.
Have a great week everyone and best of luck traveling!
