Big Bag of Nothing

El Sol did a fine job of chasing away the clouds this afternoon. We finished with bright skies and seasonable temperatures.
Seems the northeast wind is taking over in the short term. This means two things: cool readings along the coast, and low/mid level clouds. Regarding the latter, I'm seeing alternating patches of clear skies and cloudy skies out over the Gulf of Maine. Question becomes, when do the clouds (or clear skies) arrive? It's at the whim of the fickle winds blowing out over the ocean. Or more simply, it's like a scene in The Matix . The problem is choice.
If this batch of clouds choses to come through in the overnight hours, we'll wake to clouds and we'll spend most of the day fending them off. If these clouds wait, then they'll be around all afternoon tomorrow. Either way, we're coolest at the coast and warmest Metrowest.
I really need a storm to talk about.
This cloud/choice issue is over by the weekend. Plenty of bright weather and lots of mild air. 70s? You got it - although only in the upper 60s on the Cape.
Still no storms brewing. Got a warmup by the middle of next week though.
