Same As It Ever Was
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Funny little thing happened early in the morning off the coast of Maine. A storm flared up (and became quite nasty) off of Portland. That storm put out a cool batch of air and sent it southbound toward Massachusetts. That batch of cool air became our sea breeze and dropped the temperature from the mid 80s around 10am to the upper 60s by 6pm.
That's the nature of our pattern: storms pop, cool us down - or cloud us up - and then move on. On top of that, today's sea breeze boundary will be the focus for more storms through tomorrow and Wednesday. The end game is in sight, however....we may actually get a shot at a storm-free stretch from Friday through Monday of next week.
Why the change?
A front will slowly move through on Thu/Fri, shoving a more stable airmass across New England. It's subtle enough to nix the storm threat, BUT NOT enough to see a significant drop in humidity. Translated: keep the A/C on and plan for more bad hair days.
That's "summa" in New England for ya.
