Ready for an active pattern? Starting today through the middle of next week a number of storms will take a swipe at us. None of these are epic blockbusters but they will be capable of blocking out the sun and tossing raindrops our way.
Our first tussle with these storms is already under way now (7am) with mostly cloudy skies and as we step through the day, the clouds will own us and eventually some rain showers too--especially after 2pm. Due to all the clouds & raindrops, our temperatures have a hard time making it out of the 30s for much of the day but by late afternoon the temps will hop over the 40 mark. Look for a scattering of rain showers this evening with temps holding in the low 40s.
Saturday will start how Friday finished....clouds & showers but as we work through the day the showers will fade offering dry weather after 2pm. The clouds will hang though for the entire day keeping temps pinned in the low & mid 40s.
Sunday will be the drier of the 2 weekend days despite all sorts of clouds. High temps will be a smidge warmer than Saturday with most towns reaching the upper 40s. Sunday will be the day for getting the Christmas tree of putting up the holiday lights outside.
As we sneak a peak into next week, another bag of clouds & showers will arrive Monday morning--take a break--then re-appear by Monday evening. At this time, the Patriots game will feature showers with temps in the upper 40s.
Not a bad day overall huh? Seasonable temps, some sunshine and temperatures close to the average. However, the quiet weather won't last as rain, snow and even some ice head our way in the 7day forecast.
Love that tune and it's todays screaming message from the weather office. Sharing.....my college professor always said to look for the screaming message within the weather maps and he's right as our pattern will get busy the next several days so if you can take some time today (in this ever-busy holiday season) enjoy the silence.
Ocean storm offshore yanked the clouds away this afternoon. While our neighbors in Nova Scoti, New Brunswick and Cape Breton Island battled the wind and rain, we were basking in sun and temperatures close to 50.
You never want to root for a storm ---unless of course it's a snowstorm on Christmas Eve ;o) --- but I am today (and it's not a snowstorm). This storm out over the water will scoot up into Nova Scotia today and as it's leaving it will grab some of our clouds and get us some much needed sunshine by afternoon. This sunshine will boost temps into the mid 40s--normal for this time of year. Tomorrow will offer up even more sunshine making it the pick of the week.
