Raw Sunday Leads to Springlike Week

Sorry for not posting for a while, but it looks like our generally uneventful weather pattern will persist into this second week of April. Temperatures will start off very cool for this time of year tomorrow with a raw NE wind, as SNE is sandwiched in between a massive high pressure to the north and a low pressure missing us to the southeast. The 'squeeze play' will allow a NE wind to funnel in the marine influence right into SNE and against the Berkshires. Tomorrow will only be around 40 degrees along the shore to the mid 40's past Springfield. To add insult to injury, there will be bouts of drizzle dampening the ground tomorrow, especially along the coast and Cape, with a few embedded heavier showers. Don't expect much rain, just enough to wet the pavement perhaps. Winds will be out of the NE at 10-20 mph. Monday brings in some sunshine, so areas away from the coast by say 20 miles will likely get to near 50 degrees, while areas near the coast suffer from the sea breeze and stay in the low 40's. It's the time of the dreaded sea breeze. This will last through the rest of the spring and summer, but you will love it once we get water temperatures near 70 so we can get the occasional break from the heat and humidity. Right now the water is a numbing 38 degrees, so we have a ways to go still.

We will warm up by midweek and have a decent Fenway opener on Tuesday, albeit, cool at the Park with highs in the 40's. Gametime temperatures will be in the mid-upper 40's. Then we warm into the 60's later this week, with the coastline the only wildcard, but i think all of us will warm into the mid 60's on Thursday with a stronger SW wind before we all cool down going into next weekend with the possibility of more rain.
