Warming Trend BeginningJune 6th, 2012 at 9:05 am by Michelle Muscatello under General Talk, Tony's Pinpoint Weather Blog
The local strawberry season is in full swing–a few weeks earlier than usual because of the warm Spring. But it was quite the juxtaposition yesterday as I took my boys to a local farm to pick strawberries and peas dressed in pants and fleece jackets! It was another day with temperatures running more than 10° below average.
The chill that’s been in the air the last few days will begin to ease… with temperature trending upwards over the next few days… we’re looking at highs well into the 60s this afternoon and then 70s tomorrow. We’re still under the influence of an upper level storm system that’s been meandering over the northeast.
It will slowly drift eastward over the next few days… but as long as it’s close by, we’ll keep seeing some scattered showers in New England. It’s not going to be a “washout” today or tomorrow, but you’ll want to make sure you have your umbrella nearby as a few showers are likely to pop-up each day. There’s even the chance for a few isolated thunderstorms. Some of those thunderstorms could contain small hail and gusty winds.
