Fun While It Lasted
Posted by Chris Lambert
No bitter cold, no strong winds, nothing falling from the sky. Tuesday turned out to be a dandy of a day until 4:00PM, then the rain moved in. Hope you had the chance to enjoy what little time we had the nicer weather for.
Temps made it into the middle to upper 40s, so yes, this one's all rain. The exception to that will be across the Worcester Hills and SW New Hampshire. That's where some wet snow mixes in close out the storm, but even there, I don't expect much of an issue.
The rain is a quick hitter with a couple of tenths of an inch around Boston, and northwest.. Up to 0.50" south of the city, especially across southern Plymouth County, southern Bristol County, and the Cape/Islands. That's where a few rumbles of thunder in heavier rains may be heard. Rain is generally done by midnight.
Cold and windy for Wednesday and Thursday as winds gust 25-35mph. Temps run in the low to mid 30s each afternoon, with wind chills around 20.
Friday looks great. Near 40 with clouds and sun.
Something about a weekend storm? Yeah, it's still in the forecast, but looks more of a Sunday issue than Saturday. Confidence is growing that we'll deal with at least a plowable snow (at least a few inches). Whether it turns out to be a bigger deal remains to be seen. Also, the exact track will dictate if any rain mixes in at the coast, or across SE Mass. We'll keep an eye on it, but it's still 5 days out. Too early to commit to amounts.
