The Big Chill
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
While we were unwinding after that Sox victory last night a decent little chunk of arctic air dropped into southern New England. When you step (or did step) out the front door, the numbers were down into the 20s--even Boston hasn't been this chilly since mid April (36). This arctic air will cling to us for much of the day as the temps struggle to reach the upper 40s. In fact, along the coast, the afternoon temps will only be near 45...nearly 15 degrees cooler than yesterday. That sun will shine brightly (morning clouds on the South Shore for a time).
Tomorrow, the chilly air tries to move out by milder air and this will result in a mostly cloudy day and even a few sprinkles tomorrow morning(7am-11am). Plan on a dry afternoon and evening. For game 6 of the World Series, skies will average out partly cloudy & temps in the upper 40s. A light breeze out to right field. Go Sox!
Onto Halloween. Thankfully, this year we are not expecting epic an snowstorm, a storm that has a name or even a storm that appears 'perfect" on the weather charts but we are going to be tracking a warm front. This front will offer up a treat in the sense that it will be mild with afternoon and evening temps in the upper 50s! This front will try & trick us though with clouds for much of the day and even a few showers late afternoon & evening. Boo. As of now, the highest chance of raindrops appears to be from about Fitchburg to Portsmouth. It should stay dry metro Boston until all the little ghosts & goblins have returned home safely. Beneficial rain is likely on Friday with many towns picking up an inch of rain. It may also be fairly windy as well.
