Threading The Needle
Posted by Chris Lambert
Like a Uehara pitch in the 9th, location and set-up are what count.
For us in southern New England, Mother Nature plays ball as best she can for us as our location, and the current pattern set-up, help us out in avoiding most of the rain that'll surround the area.
Tonight, we watch most of the rain move just north of us, and just south of us. The two batches of moisture won't phase into a bigger storm until it's well east of us, and that means we won't see a lot of rain out of either system. However, there will be just enough moisture to throw out a few sprinkles and scattered light showers, but nothing to create long rain delays, cancelations or big puddles. Up to just a few hundredths of an inch of rain fall in some towns, and that's just enough to dampen the ground at worst. Bottom line... play ball and go Sox!
This sprinkle/light shower talk is long gone by Sunday morning as sunshine returns and temps warm into the lower 60s for the afternoon. The wind will crank out of the west, gusting 25-30mph at times.
Long range still looks much, MUCH cooler. Wednesday is a close call with a coastal storm as a few showers could get in here for the afternoon and evening. Highs Wednesday reach the mid 50s, but likely fall back into the 40s near days end.
Thursday-Saturday feature dry weather, but highs struggle to hit 50 with overnight lows near 30. Yup... a downward trend for sure.
