Change in The Air
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Now that was a cold front.
There wasn't a lot going on during the first part of the day...other than a major spike in temperatures. Highs soared to the mid and upper 70s - and even some 80s out through Rt. 2/Southern NH. Then the shoe - or better yet a back door cool front - dropped.
Thermometers dropped faster than the stock market on a day of bad earnings. We shaved 15-20 degrees in 20 minutes to a half hour! Boston dropped from 67 to 56 in about a half of an hour. The reason? The cool air that poured in was coming out of Maine and New Brunswick, where the ocean water temperatures are in the low 40s. Kick up a breeze across that water, and you have refrigerated air on the move...into our neighborhoods.
It'll be around tomorrow, along with some clouds. So we'll trade our 70s in for 50s and 60s. Not exactly a beach day, but still decent.
Better than decent for the weekend. More sun than you can shake a stick at. Cooling sea breezes will bring us back to the low 60s along the coast, but elsewhere we should be close to 70 both days.
At last I put a drop of rain on the 7 day. I'm not seeing a pattern change as much as I'm seeing a small storm curling up to New England late next week. Certainly not a deluge, but it could put down more than just a passing shower.
Be well....and we'll see you at the Walk for Hunger on Sunday!
