Chilly, Damp Start to the WeekJune 4th, 2012 at 9:01 am by Michelle Muscatello under General Talk, Tony's Pinpoint Weather Blog
Grab your sweater, your raincoats, your umbrellas and your extra large cup of hot coffee today… it’s a Monday, with a huge YUCK factor for the weather! We’ll have lots of clouds, scattered showers, drizzle and mist, a gusty north-northeast wind and unseasonably chilly temperatures… it’s enough to make you hit the snooze button a few extra times this morning.
Low pressure will slowly drift away from coastal New England… delivering a stiff north-northeast wind and bringing areas of showers and drizzle. Temperatures will only slowly make their way through the 50s… reaching a high of a chilly 59° by late afternoon. I don’t expect any of the strong or severe thunderstorms that impacted our area yesterday evening, but this is the beginnings of an unsettled weather pattern that will be tough to shake this work week. The jet stream will have a strong dip–or trough–over New England… keeping our temperatures at, or below average through Friday, and we’ll also see the risk for scattered showers at times.
It looks like we may get back to warmer weather starting this weekend… and next week is looking warm. In fact, the 6-10 day outlooks from the Climate Prediction Center is in agreement with this, with a fairly high confidence forecast of warmer-than-normal weather for New England. This is for the period June 9-13.
