Looks Can Be Deceiving
Posted by Chris Lambert
Bright blue skies in early May, and looking outside, you'd think it's a nice, mild afternoon. Deep inland it was, but closer toward the coast, looks can be deceiving. A wind straight out of the east once again held temperatures down in the 50s, creating a bit of a chill to the air. At least it was bright and a fine day on the golf course or ball field as long as you had that jacket handy.
It'll be a cool night tonight under mainly clear skies this evening and many of the suburbs heading back into the low to mid 30s for overnight lows. One thing we'll watch for is some low clouds developing near the coast, especially across SE Mass. That would actually hold temps in the 40s overnight if they form, but also be stubborn to let the sun shine tomorrow morning. Best chance to see some low clouds to start Sunday morning are Plymouth/Bristol Counties, with an even higher chance for the Cape and Islands.
Away from the Cape/Islands, sunshine returns Sunday, yet, with an onshore wind, warming temps up is once again a bit of a struggle. Since the winds are not due east, but more ESE to SE, I'll add a few degrees on to today's highs when planning on the forecasted highs Sunday. Mid 50s coast, mid 60s inland and near 70 outside 495.
High pressure anchored in will not allow for rain through Tuesday before the blocked pattern breaks down and showers may finally arrive by Wednesday and Thursday next week. Good news for the thirsty lawns and gardens.
