After a Saturday that featured lots of clouds until mid afternoon in the Boston area, then more sun toward the end of the day, we will be able to enjoy a sunny Sunday for the first day of May! But enjoy the sun while you can, because when it fades away on Monday I don’t expect we will see much of it for the balance of the first week of May.
High pressure building overhead will be responsible for the nice weather on Sunday, though expect the coast to be quite cool thanks to a sea breeze. By Monday, this high pressure area will be moving offshore, making way for a frontal system to move in. This front will be slow to move in, and then likely slow to leave, as the upper level air flow will become parallel to the front along the East Coast. Also, slow-moving upper level low pressure will dominate New England the deeper into the week we go. All this means that a lengthy stretch of unsettled weather is likely in the cards. It will not rain all of the time, but several periods of damp weather and generally below normal temperatures can be expected, starting about Tuesday. More on this upcoming unsettled pattern on tomorrow’s blog. Meanwhile, for now, the details for the Boston area go like this…
