Seconds on the Sunshine
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Still mired in clouds today. While we did see some sun, it wasn't all that bright. Temperatures still managed to make it to 50 in many spots, but a cooling breeze at the water's edge kept us in the upper 40s.
Clouds will thin out for the big feast tomorrow and temps will moderate...by a degree or two. Not much to move the needle until we get to Friday, when the wind direction stirs from the south. By then, we could be knocking on the door of 56 or 57. (I know, big deal.)
But in retrospect, it might be. Colder air is en route. By Saturday afternoon, we'll fall through the upper 30s with a gusty, biting wind. More cold is in store for Sunday and Monday as we eye a small storm moving through the Ohio Valley.
Recent trends have shown this to be a changeover situation, where we start as some snow or mix and then turn to rain. (Along the coast, we may never even get the snow/sleet.) While this morning's long range maps have flopped back to a colder solution - showing mostly snow & sleet for EVERYONE - I'm not taking the bait. Reason being, the upper level winds are still showing a milder track.
Still plenty of time to sort out the details and fine tune the forecast. Enjoy the holiday weekend and be safe!
