Storms On Hold
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Little batch of clouds came in this afternoon across Greater Boston, Metrowest, the North Shore and the Merrimack Valley. Normally, this wouldn't be a big deal, but when you've been on a long stretch of sunny weather, it makes quite an impression.
In addition, this time of year when the sun goes in, the temperatures suffer. And that they did. We fell from the mid 60s to the upper 50s. Sure, a sea breeze helped, but the overriding factor was the clouds.
They'll be around from time to time tomorrow. Sun will still have the upper hand, and if you live away from Rt. 1 and Rt. 3, your temperatures should be just fine. Plan on climbing into the upper 60s to near 70 right into Friday.
Yesterday I was harping about a possible end to the bright and dry weather. Well, that storm looks like it will steer far offshore Monday, sparing us a coastal storm and a windy, wet day. Confidence in a big miss is high as all the weather models are jiving now.
On a separate note, cool nights and mild days are bringing the foliage along nicely. Parts of Northern New England are seeing 30-40% color.
