You Sank My Sunshine Battleship
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
When looking at the 4am observation out at Logan airport this morning, I saw: 64 63 96% E9. Focus on that E9....it's the wind direction and speed at the airport. Anytime you have an east wind you can plan on cool conditions and sometimes that also means clouds & fog. That "sometimes" is today. Poo. Now that we are at the tail end of summer also means that east wind has a stronger influence compared to early July. So you you folks well inland can also plan on mainly cloudy skies as cool conditions. Most towns will reach the lower 70s inland while coastal locations won't make it out of the 60s. There will be a few pockets of drizzle & or sprinkles thorugh the day but otherwise, it's mainly dry.
Tomorrow that wind switches back to the southwest and that means a return to summer with mainly sunny skies & temps back up near 80. Great beach day. Time to share......*IF* you have the flexibility, take tomorrow off from work instead of Monday as the pattern begins to break down as we roll into the holiday weekend.
A cool front will crawl through the northeast this upcoming holiday weekend. Western & northern New England will see the showers first on Saturday afternoon, eastern New England early Sunday and much of New England on Labor Day. As of now, I think only Labor Day runs the risk of being washed out. The other two days will offer plenty of dry weather with just a few showers. More on the specifics tomorrow.
