Good morning everybody, we’re still in an active pattern over the next week or so. There are some signs that by the 2nd week in May we could start turn the corner more firmly into Spring weather, but for now, it’s Winter-Mashed-Into-Springtime, so here goes our weekly round up.
Remember: raise the ‘brows for 20 secs, smile while they’re raised for 10 secs, repeat that half a minute exercise 5 times a day for optimal neurological benefit.
And now here’s Dave with the weather…
–Sunshine! Hark! Enjoy it while we got it, which will be for the morning anyway. Winds have slackened due to high pressure approaching the region and lessening the pressure gradient that was focused across WMass yesterday and into last night
–Thereafter, clouds build into the region, but not before we get highs to peak out in the upper 40s to low 50s
–A first band of showers will dry out on approach from the southwest late this afternoon and early evening, but a few are possible, and SVT may see some mixes with a few snowflakes or sleet pellets
–Clouds thicken tonight, and rain showers will increase by late tonight into the midnight hour and last into the noon hour or so on Friday
–Lows tonight will dip into the mid to upper 30s
–Rain north of the Rt. 2 corridor will be lighter, as this is a coastal system sliding to our south
–Expect about a quarter to half inch of rain from about Rt. 2 down into northern CT, with less a quarter inch, generally speaking, north of Rt. 2
–Friday highs will only reach the mid to upper 40s with showers lessening by afternoon at some point
–Northeast winds will give it a raw feel with gusts to 20mph or so
–Lows will drop into the low to mid 30s
–Saturday is your day! High pressure moves into the region, mostly sunny skies develop, and highs will reach the upper 50s to low 60s, woo hoo!
–That also means extra pollen, so allergy sufferers take notice
–Our nice weather is short-lived, as another low pressure area dives southeast out of the northern Plains and pushes through New England for Sunday
–Clouds increase Saturday night with lows down into the mid to upper 30s
–Rain moves in well before dawn, and some snow or sleet mix is possible in SVT, SWNH, and northwest MA early Sunday morning
–We should all flip to rain showers during the day Sunday with highs in the mid 40s to low 50s, with showers continuing in the evening and lows in the upper 30s
–Monday looks like the upper level system moves overhead with a cold pool of air aloft, destabilizing the atmosphere and causing more scattered showers with highs in the 40s and low 50s
–Tuesday looks like a repeat of Saturday with mostly sunny skies and highs near 60, but by Wednesday clouds will be increasing, with more rain possible Wednesday night into Thursday
This pattern won’t last forever, like everything else in this world, including good moods, bad moods, and on and on. It reminds me of the chorus lyrics to a song I wrote about 10 years ago..
nothing stays the same
when I rearrange it
I gotta change it again
Have a good day, folks, and get some of that sun on you this morning even if you just step out into your yard, stoop, or walkway for a moment…
