The severe weather across far western areas of Massachusetts and into New Hampshire has diminished. These storms, what remains will produce heavy rain overnight as they head east and pass offshore after midnight. A cool maritime air mass will prevent any severe weather within 40-50 miles of the coast. Earlier today there were tornado watches and warnings up for parts of New England. Some areas around Keene, NH saw over 1/2 a foot of rain. Trees went down and roads got washed out, there was also many reports of hail as well.
A cold front is slowly moving east this evening at the same time warm and humid air has moved into much of southern and central New England. Over the next several hours we will be watching a line of storms that moved out of New York and Pennsylvania earlier today cross eastern Massachusetts and the rest of New England. As the storms move east they are weakening and will produce some heavy rain and thunder. I don't expect any severe weather around Boston.
On this Memorial Day our weather looks warm and muggy with scattered showers in the afternoon along with hours of sunshine. Thank you to everyone who has ever served our country! We couldn't enjoy this great nation without you. Sunshine will burn through much of the cloud cover leaving us with a blend of sunshine and clouds for today.
The heat and humidity of yesterday has now moved well to our south. The weather today looks nearly perfect with sunshine, low humidity and warm temperatures. Tonight and Monday, the same front that brought our dry weather for today is going to move north, this time, it will bring back the humidity for early next week. Enjoy your Sunday, it's clearly the best one for the next several days.FULL ENTRY
What many consider the first weekend of summer is now underway. Although there are clouds and some foggy areas this morning, this will burn away leaving us with a partly to mostly sunny afternoon. It will hot inland and cooler along the coast. Sunday is looking quite nice with cooler temperatures and a few afternoon clouds rolling in. Showers and even a thunderstorm are possible late Sunday night and Monday but Monday will see some sunshine and comfortably warm temperatures and dry overall.FULL ENTRY
If you have been reading the blog this week you know I have been talking about a front that is scheduled to pass through the area on Saturday. This front is still going to move through, the problem is that it won't move very far and thus the boundary between warm and cool air will be close. Boundaries like this one tend to produce lost of clouds and a few showers. This boundary will fluctuate over the area from Sunday into early next week. Our sunny dry weekend, is looking more and more like a hot summer day on Saturday and then more clouds for Sunday and Monday.FULL ENTRY
A very nice Thursday is on the way with sunshine, some humidity, a tiny chance for a shower and warm temperatures. The bigger question on your mind heading into the weekend, besides how bad will traffic be, is the weather. The good news, it's not going to a washout by any means. The bad news, there are still a couple of issues that could spoil a few hours of the three day weekend, especially later Monday.FULL ENTRY
Clouds and showers are on the weather menu for today with the best chance of rain before 1pm. This afternoon, we will still have cloudy weather with the risk of showers.The weather the rest of the week looks to be ok. What the heck does "ok" mean? Well, it means it's not going to be perfect, but we will see some sunshine, warm temperatures and still the risk of a few showers. The holiday weekend looks nice, but not without some chance of rain.FULL ENTRY
Alberto, the first named storm of the season formed this weekend of the southeast coast. This storm, will give some rain and a bit of wind to portions of South Carolina but is a non-event as tropical systems go. Around our area, fine May weather continues with warm afternoon temperatures and plenty of sunshine through some high clouds. A few showers will cross the area later Monday into Tuesday before drier weather returns for the second half of the week. There is also a partial solar eclipse occurring in some parts of the world today and tomorrow. Along the east coast, we miss out as the sun sets just before the eclipse starts. The shadow moving west to east is the eclipse, the shadow moving east to west is the sunset. The sunset happens first along the eastern seaboard. Next time astronomy lovers.FULL ENTRY
While the weather looks to be absolutely spectacular starting tomorrow, we have to get through some more showers and potential thunderstorms today. On the weather map we find a cold front this morning off to our west. This front marks the line between the muggy air over us and the dry comfortable air coming for the rest of the week. As the line moves through, that will produce some showers and thunderstorms. Any severe weather looks to be isolated.FULL ENTRY
Another mostly cloudy afternoon across the region with much of the rain off to our west. Although I don't expect much sunshine this afternoon, you will see a glimpse or two, most of the rest of the day will remain dry. Although the rain is close, across western New York and into New Jersey, it will take much of the afternoon to move north and east. The rain will fall quite heavily for a time overnight before ending around the morning commute Wednesday. Thereafter, we begin a fantastic stretch of weather.FULL ENTRY
On this Monday morning, it's back to clouds, a chance of rain, and a general malaise in the weather. Today, the unsettled weather is caused by a front (the dividing line between air masses) stuck to our west. This front will never really push through the area until Wednesday night. What that means is a period of sunless days to start the week.FULL ENTRY
A dry afternoon is on tap for Mother's day, but not as sunny as our perfect weather day Saturday. As warmer air streams north and cooler lags to our west, high clouds are going to block out the sun from time to time the rest of the afternoon. Temperatures will reach into the upper 70s and lower 80s this afternoon but humidity will remain low. Clouds thicken for Monday, and there is a risk for a few showers. The steady rain moves in for Tuesday into Wednesday with perhaps a few inches of rain by the time it all ends later Wednesday.FULL ENTRY
This is big weekend for many across the area. There are several graduations that will take place and of course it's Mother's Day Sunday. The Sox are in town and hopefully going to have a winning weekend home stand. The weather looks to cooperate for most of the weekend with my pick of the two days being Saturday. Sunday there is a small area of weather that will move through in the afternoon and could kick off a quick shower. More details ahead. All in all, it looks like a great weekend.FULL ENTRY
Since Tuesday many areas have received anywhere from 1-5 inches of rain across the region. The heaviest rainfall totals have been seen over the southeastern part of the State, this is also the area with the greatest rainfall deficit, so I expect our winter-spring drought to be all but over, at least for now. Better weather is on the way for the weekend, but all is not perfect. There may be a few showers on Mother's day although most of the day should be sunny.FULL ENTRY
More rain is moving into the area this evening and there are some heavier showers embedded in the rain. This period of rain looks to last about 5 hours and produce up to 1/2 an inch of rain. Quite early tomorrow, the weather turns mild and there will be a break in the precipitation during the morning and into the afternoon, the sun may even come out for a few hours. Another round of rain moves through the area to start Thursday before we see some slow improvement as we head into the weekend.FULL ENTRY
Sunday ended up being a great day after the morning clouds moved away and temperatures finally warmed to a respectable 70F over inland areas. At the coast, the sea breeze kept it cool but there was plenty of sunshine. Today will be another fine May day with sunshine and seasonable temperatures in the 60s. Starting tomorrow, a boundary of air masses will stall over the northeast. This boundary will act as the focal point for several periods of showers and steady rain through Thursday.FULL ENTRY
Showers for today will be on and off in nature. You could even hear the rumble of thunder especially south of the Massachusetts Turnpike towards Connecticut. There will be dry periods lasting several hours between the showers. Rainfall amounts do not look to be significant in most areas. Those spots that do get a thunderstorm will see locally higher rainfall amounts. Clouds will continue overnight and into Saturday with improving weather for Sunday.FULL ENTRY
Unsettled weather will continue through Saturday with the greatest amounts of rain coming Friday. For today and Saturday the weather will be cloudy with spotty drizzle and a quick shower. The rain tomorrow could be heavy at times as tropical moisture tries to move northward into our cool damp air mass. The exact location of the dividing line between the cool air and the tropical air will dictate where the heaviest rain falls.FULL ENTRY
