Hit The Showers
Posted by Pete Bouchard
What a way to go out! Sunshine, fair weather clouds. Beautiful!
We're done with those temps for a while (although we will at least see 60s), and we probably won't see a bright day like this until Monday of next week. But it's not all lemons and vinegar. Our rainfall deficit continues to grow to over 4" (since Mar. 1)! Any and all rain - no matter how paltry - is welcome news.
First up is a batch of rain with a slow-moving low pressure system. Bands of light rain will swirl up from Rhode Island and Connecticut by mid/late AM tomorrow. Thursday is a day with off-and-on showers, then the system will roll out of here.
Friday is an in-between day. I've been stressing that the period from Wed-Sun ISN'T washed out entirely, and Friday looks to be one of those days we'll get a pause and maybe see a few rays of sun. Humidity will be on the rise as well.
Saturday is another day like Wednesday. Pretty wet...start to finish. While Sunday looks to be like Friday.
One thing I'm not seeing is an incessant period of wet weather - like on the order of weeks. Thankfully, the pattern seems to be moving along, flushing out weather systems and bringing back sun in the long range. One thing that is suspiciously absent is the heat. None of it is building across the country...
