Rainy Back to Work Monday

What is better to start off the new work week seeing rain and clouds, to define our depressed feeling of being back at work and school, with no hope of a vacation until late December. Oh well, we needed the rain all summer and we are finally getting it. Tomorrow will be a very rainy day with the rain coming into eastern Southern New England likely after the morning commute. It will become heavy in the afternoon and continue much of the evening and overnight hours, likely ending as showers during the morning commute on Tuesday, after say 8AM. All said and done, we are seeing a beneficial 3/4" to 1.25"of rainfall out of this entire event. Worcester County (northern) is under a Freezing Rain Advisory right now for fear that if this starts early enough tomorrow morning when temperatures are just around 30-32 degrees, there may be some freezing rain. Closer to the coast, by the time the rain moves into our area, the temperatures will have risen out of the freezing range and up to the mid and upper 30's. No threat of frozen precipitation here.

Once it does clear up on early Tuesday we will be talking about a warm afternoon with gradual clearing. Highs will be in the mid 50's and the smell of spring will be upon us once again after leaving on Thanksgiving Day. It will be short-lived, though, with the cold really coming back after seasonable temperatures Wednesday through Friday, mainly in the 40's.

By the start of the weekend, we will be in the low 30's with all eyes turning southwest, looking for our next storm coming with a renewed source of cold air for New England. We will have to wait and see how this eventually pans out for the first of December, with the NAO crashing by this time period. It could get interesting...
