With so many ups and downs in Spring around New England, it's nice to establish a pattern that's dry and near, or just above normal temperatures wise. The downside, the pollen counts remain high, and some days features elevated brush fire threats with such a dry air mass in place. The upside of course is the dry weather, perfect for hitting the golf course, the baseball field, or any other outdoor activity. Although, still a bit cool for the beach.
Just like a car on cruise control, I don't see a lot of day to day changes in the forecast next week as an area of high pressure builds and anchors in to our northeast. It's just close enough to us to shield us from any rain, which gets pinned down just to our west. More clouds mix in with the sun Monday and Tuesday, but temps are similar which means near 60 at the coast, near 70 inland. Tuesday, a few showers manage to pop up as far east as the Connecticut River Valley, but dry weather likely prevails from Worcester to Boston.
Wednesday through Saturday of next week feature more nice weather. Days that have a stronger east breeze see temperatures in the upper 50s coast, mid 60s inland. When winds are light, temperatures reach the low 70s inland and low to mid 60s at the coast. The warmest day of that stretch looks to be Thursday at this point.
Enjoy the 2nd half of the weekend and Go Sox!
