Warming Before The Rain
Posted by Chris Lambert
Well, today was almost a carbon copy of yesterday. Temps were close, the coastline was the coolest and sunshine dominated most of the day. Once again, the warmest temperatures in New England were far removed from the coastline. Burlington, VT as well as Quebec City were in the lower 80s this afternoon, about the same as Fort Myers, Florida.
The pattern change lies ahead and we'll see nice weather and warmer temps before the rain hits. As those east winds we had this weekend turn to the south, Monday and Tuesday warm up. The most noticeable difference will be at the coast as highs finally break into the 60s, and even close to 70 by Tuesday. Inland, 70 is easily within reach as highs break into the mid to upper 70s Tuesday afternoon.
The area of high pressure anchored in will not allow for rain through Tuesday but after that, all bets are off. The pesky area of low pressure that's in the middle part of the country now, finds it's way toward New England and the chance of showers start Wednesday afternoon. Unsettled weather may not be easy to kick out either as each day from Wednesday, into Saturday, features a chance of rain. We could use it, the lawns and gardens will appreciate the water.
We're running almost 3" behind in the rainfall department since April 1st. While we may not make that all up this week, we could cut that in half by the time next weekend ends.
