This and That
Posted by Chris Lambert
Rain, wind, breaks of sun, thunder, fog... and that's just today.
Showers this Saturday morning tend to fade, allowing for some dry breaks at times, including a few rays of sunshine managing to sneak in between the clouds. I don't see today a bright day overall, but at least we do get some dry hours. The highest rain chances I see this morning/lunch time are across SE Mass, then the highest rain chance this afternoon is northwest of Boston. Keeping it dry for the entire afternoon near the city is a tall order though. Eventually those storms northwest of the city move east late afternoon and early this evening.
A few of the thunderstorms mid afternoon-evening could produce locally strong winds, small hail, and heavy rain, but widespread severe weather is not expected.
Bottom line, I'd keep the umbrella on standby throughout the day. Fog has even been an issue across the Cape this morning too, visibility should improve a bit as winds pick up. How bout' the Sox game? Near 70, windy, shower possible.
Mother's Day features temps in the mid to upper 60s, lots of clouds, and once again a few showers around. If you're taking mom out to brunch, I'd keep the umbrella handy again.
Dry and cool weather works in Monday-Wednesday.
Have a good weekend and Happy Mother's Day!
