Cool Continues For Now
Posted by Chris Lambert
High pressure building in from Canada with cool, dry air has established itself for now. Combine that with an onshore wind, and temperatures this time of year will struggle to rise despite all the sunshine in place.
It'll be another cool night tonight with temperatures nearing freezing outside the city. In fact, freeze warnings and frost advisories are posted for southern Bristol, southern Plymouth County and the Cape and Islands. The reason why they are not posted for the rest of us? Typically this time of year, we tend to still see frosty nights, and since the growing season hasn't been considered to start yet, no advisories come out when cold air is in place. If you have put some plants or flowers outside, you'll need to cover them up tonight though.
Tomorrow temps look like today's... upper 40s coast and low to mid 50s inland. We will notice more mid to high level clouds increasing in the afternoon and an east wind increasing to 15+mph.
The next chance of wet weather rolls in Tuesday as an area of low pressure passing just to our east brings in a chilly northeast flow and some rain. Right now, the heaviest rain stays just offshore, but it's something we'll continue to track. Winds increase as well, and with an active east to northeast wind, theres no hope of a warm-up Tuesday as the mercury hovers in the mid to upper 40s.
Wednesday and beyond start looking better number-wise with the only chance of rain on Thursday.
