Surging Temps & Sunny Skies



    Superb day! Only spoiled by a steady stream of high clouds in Southern New England. Still didn't stop the temperatures from climbing into the low 70s in most spots.

    Dry air is in place for the long haul in New England. Like last night, we'll cool off quickly tonight. Frost advisories are up across Western New England from Springfield to Morrisville, VT.

    With tons of blue sky tomorrow, we'll add a couple of degrees to our high temperatures areawide. The only exception may be along the coast with a gentle afternoon sea breeze. That should be enough to knock us back into the mid and upper 60s.

    That breeze is more direct and forceful on Thursday as a true south/southeast wind emerges. This will keep all of Southeastern Massachusetts and Southern Rhode Island near 70 (60s Cape/Islands) while we make a run for 80 in Northern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire. 

    Humidity may rise ahead of our Friday weather system as moisture is drawn north ahead of a cool front. As its name implies, the air will cool off...but not until Sunday. Saturday is looking like another 70+ day as we await the cooler pattern to establish itself.

    Speaking of, next week is more normal - or perhaps a bit below - as the jet stream dips across the Northeast.

    So much for establishing a summer pattern in mid May.
