Lots of Rain This Week!

This week will feature two washout days. The first one is coming tomorrow. The temperatures tonight will actually spike after sunset and we will only have morning temperatures tomorrow morning in the mid 40s for lows. That will allow for afternoon temperatures to really skyrocket into the upper 50s to perhaps low 60s over southeastern Mass. Right now in regards to rainfall, I am thinking that many areas will come in just over one inch of liquid from this one before pushing out later tomorrow night. It will drag in some colder air for Thursday as highs will only manage the mid-upper 30s, but don't let that one day of cold fool you. The cold will be short lived as another storm will move west of our area and bring warm air all the way up to Maine once again. Right now it looks like Friday will be warmer than tomorrow and if you asked me last night what the forecast was for Friday I would have told you cold and heavy snow. Just goes to show how quick to change the computer models are this time of year. So, for now, I am going for low to mid 60s with heavy rain, amounting to two inches or more on Friday. I am thinking that the further NW you go, it will get colder, but I do not think that anyone sees snow out of this one here in SNE, maybe at the very onset we will see a brief period of snow/sleet, but it would all be washed away by such warm temperatures anway. That pushes through on Friday night and that leads us to a chilly but manageable weekend with highs in the mid 30s on Saturday warming to around 40 degrees on Sunday. In the long range, next week looks to be mighty mild with some sunshine this time. I am going for afternoon highs to soar well into the 40s with some sunshine Monday next week and we may squeak out some 50 degree readings or better by midweek next week. So far, this winter has been pretty tame.
