Even It Out
Posted by Chris Lambert
Temps were all over this place this afternoon. At one point it was in the upper 30s across the Mass/NH border and in the lower 60s across parts of SE Mass, like New Bedford, who hit 61 degrees! Obviously, the fog and cold air stuck near the surface was tough to scour out, and for many locations, a southerly breeze never developed.
We'll track a few showers through the area tonight, mainly from 9:00PM-2:00AM, although a few sprinkles and clouds may linger into daybreak across the eastern part of the state. With temperatures tonight generally holding in the 40s, there won't any icing issues.
Clouds early tomorrow break apart as skies become mostly sunny and temps run into the lower to middle 50s for all of us. So temps overall, much more even versus the 20+ degree range we saw today.
Mild weather sticks around Tuesday with highs in the mid 50s to perhaps near 60 if enough sun can hold on.
I don't see more rain until Wednesday morning, as a cold front sweeps in with showers. Temps on Wednesday reach the low 50s late morning, then fall back into the low 40s by sunset. That will set up a chilly night Wednesday night and Thursday.
More rain is possible by the second half of next weekend, and behind that storm, we may start to transition back to a colder pattern during the 2nd week of the month as the cold and warmth battle it out. Indications are that the 2nd half of the month still could produce more cold than warmth.
