Nasty storm blasting across new England right now with locally heavy rain & wind gusts near 45mph down in Buzzards Bay/South Coast region. This is the same weather system that spawned dozens of tornadoes in the Midwest yesterday afternoon. Thankfully this storm has lost a lot of wind energy overnight but not all of it and that's why we are seeing wind gusts near 45mph. The good news about this wind energy is that it's quickly moving the rain out of the region (although...we could use a full day of rain). This system is technically a cold front but the cold air is lagging about 24 hours and that means you have a breezy & warm day with temps spending much of the day in the low to mid 60s.
By Tuesday, the colder air is here as many cities & towns only reach the mid 40s by afternoon. Similar cold is expected for Wednesday and Thursday under cold high pressure. This cold high pressure will also give us ample sunshine for much of the week.
As we step into the upcoming weekend, another storm will take aim at us. This new storm will not have as much wind energy so no threat of severe weather and also a decent chance of an all day (beneficial) rain on Saturday. It's likely to be a cold rain too--perhaps even starting as some wet snow across southern N.H.
