Warmup In The Works
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Another day where the temperatures failed to live up to May expectations. Highs only made it into the 50s. Sure there was plenty of sun early, but then the clouds got the best of us. There were even a few sprinkles (and showers on the Cape)...much to my surprise.
No surprises tomorrow. A simple warm front will move into New England, giving us a shot at some showers by afternoon. I'm not thinking these are drenching, but since they'll be around through much of the late afternoon and into the 1st part of the night, we could see a good 1/4 inch of rain in some spots. Just enough to "keep the dust down" as they say.
"They" also say that lawns and gardens love a good rain after you put down the fertilizer. That's not in the works after Wednesday. Instead the temperatures will get a little summery on Thursday before they drop off into the weekend....which is looking pretty good at this point.
The blizzard is over three months old, but the records are still being set. Earlier in the month, the National Weather Service, The National Climate Data Center and The Northeast Regional Climate Center all confirmed a new 24 hr. state record for snowfall in Connecticut: 36" of snow in Ansonia, in New Haven county.
