Sunday April 4 2021 Forecast (7:25AM)

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 4-8)

A happy Easter to all who are celebrating it today! Despite a cold start, it will be a nice day under a small extension of Canadian high pressure. Blocking in the atmosphere will be strongest the next couple of days before some weakening of the block takes place. This pattern evolution will send a large low pressure circulation westward through the Canadian Maritimes today then southward passing not too far east of New England on Monday, before drifting back to the east away from this area into the middle of the week when high pressure rooted in eastern Canada noses its way back across this area. Other than a light precipitation threat Monday when the low makes its closest pass, this is a dry weather pattern once again. While the early blossoms are starting to show and will continue to increase, we’re still a little way off from full leaf-out, which means the combination of most days with sun keeping the ground very dry, fire danger will be quite high.

TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 53-60. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.

TONIGHT: Variably cloudy. Lows 33-40. Wind N 5-15 MPH.

MONDAY: Sun/cloud mix with cloudiest conditions nearest the eastern coast where there may also be a few light showers of rain. Highs 45-52 eastern coastal areas, 53-60 elsewhere. Wind N to NE 5-15 MPH, higher gusts in eastern coastal areas.

MONDAY NIGHT: Variably cloudy. Lows 35-42. Wind N 5-15 MPH.

TUESDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 50-57. Wind NW 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.

TUESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 36-43. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.

WEDNESDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 48-55 coast, 55-62 inland. Wind NE up to 10 MPH.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 37-44. Wind variable up to 10 MPH.

THURSDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 49-56 coast, 56-63 inland. Wind variable up to 10 MPH with coastal sea breezes.

DAYS 6-10 (APRIL 9-13)

The large scale pattern will feature the redevelopment of blocking during this period. For the first couple of days (April 9-10) it looks like high pressure, centered in eastern Canada, will extend through New England enough to keep it dry and tranquil here with cool nights and days that are mildest over the interior and cooler at the coast with sea breezes. We’ll have to keep an eye on low pressure to the southwest of the region trying to move this way from mid through late period, but despite guidance inconsistency, the trend has been to keep this area of unsettled weather pushed further to the south and while we end up with more cloudiness we would not end up with that much precipitatoin. Will watch these trends in guidance and the overall evolution of the pattern.

DAYS 11-15 (APRIL 14-18)

An overall tendency for blocking continues with our area on the drier side but the mean air flow often from the north and east with no big temperature swings.

  1. Good morning and thank you TK.

    Happy Easter to those who celebrate.

    Chilly again this morning, 29.

    Growing season has yet to start in this neck of the woods.

    1. I concur about the growing season. Even forsythias just barely coming out around my neighborhood and mine have yet to at all. Many trees aren’t even swelling up yet. Yet another slow spring in the city.

  2. Thank you, TK!

    Happy Easter!

    One of the holiest weeks (well, 10 day period) on the Judeo-Christian calendar is ending. I’m not religious, but I’m intrigued by all religions.

    I found this video of the place where the tomb of Christ is located fascinating. With few if any foreigners allowed into Israel, most of the people you see here are Israeli Christians.

    1. Truly fascinating, Joshua. I’m also fascinated by all religions. I don’t consider myself religious but think of myself as having a deep faith

      I was interested in learning from my Swedish friend that children in Sweden ….and perhaps Finland…dress as witches on Maundy Thursday and go to the doors of neighbors and friends. To my knowledge, Mac never mentioned doing this so I’ll have to ask his brother.

  3. Happy Easter everyone. I am not all that religious but I do believe that there is heaven and something had to start all of this. I don’t generally think of religion so much with these holidays but the fact it gives us reason to be with our families and friends. I am hoping that by 4th of July we can all have those 4th of Juy BBQs with friends and family with no restrictions.

    1. Good luck on that last statement occurring, unfortunately. Best case scenario this pandemic is good until at least January 2022.

  4. Forsythia flowers are coming out on the bush in the front yard while the larger back yard bush is a couple days behind that in bud stage. Both of them are about a week to 10 days behind last year.

  5. 12z GFS spits out only about 0.25 inch of precipitation for Boston for the entire period. Not a lock obviously but that’s one DRY forecast.

    1. Not good for fire dangers. Are we going to go into another drought for the foreseeable future?

  6. When I came home from work, I decided to put away my shovel for the 2020-21 season. I put away the ice melt awhile ago.

    *38.5 inches (-5.3 from normal)

    Oh well. 😉

  7. It’s very early in the baseball season, but so far the Red Sox look wretched; a continuation of last season’s dismal performance. A $200 million payroll shouldn’t be this bad.

  8. I know it is only three games but it looks like it going to be a very long season for Red Sox nation.
