Fairly Quiet Stretch
Posted by Chris Lambert
Another dry weekend goes into the books as sunshine helped warm many of us into the lower 70s this Sunday afternoon. That sun, did fade a bit at times thanks to a few batches of mid to high level clouds working in from the west, in advance of a cold front.
That front provides a few scattered showers to the area tomorrow, but it will not be a washout. The atmosphere in place is dry, so I expect the cold front to have limited moisture to work with. Instead of seeing tropical downpours fire like parts of the area had last week, there will only be hit and miss showers that are mainly light. Perhaps just enough to wet the ground at times, but most locations pick up less than 0.10" of rain. Clouds limit the sun, but occasional breaks in the overcast are good enough to get us into the upper 60s.
Behind the front, a chilly and bone dry air mass settles in for Tuesday as dew points drop into the 20s and highs struggle to get into the lower 60s. With winds out of the north to northeast, the coolest locations will be along the coast, with highs around 60, and the warmest locations in Metrowest with highs near 64.
With a clear sky and low humidity air mass in place, Tuesday nights a chilly one with temps falling back into the middle to upper 30s for many of the blurbs. It's a nice rebound Wednesday though with highs near 70.
We'll do just fine for ourselves through the end of the week with highs well into the 70s and dry weather in place.
There are some questions regarding the timing of the next cold front for us for next weekend. That front produces showers in what looks like a late Saturday to early Sunday timeframe as of now, but this far out, that timing is subject to change. I wouldn't go rewriting the the weekend planner just yet, give us a couple days to iron out the details.
Hope you had a good weekend and enjoy the Fall weather ahead.
