DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 6-10)
It’s springtime in New England, and good weather can have its down sides just as wet weather can have its up sides. Read on to see why… High pressure will bring fair and mild weather to the region today and Tuesday, very nice for any outside activity you can manage to do. The down sides? If you are an allergy sufferer, the next 2 days will likely be rough as the early-season pollen count spikes pretty high. Also, today’s sunshine and gusty breeze will spike the fire danger risk. Brush fires can start easily and spread quickly in these conditions. Tuesday night, a cold front will slip down from the north and chill us down, and quickly a low pressure area will be moving along that boundary from west to east to provide several hours of soaking rain, an overcast and much cooler Wednesday, with a follow up system to bring yet more wet weather on Thursday. The up sides? The wet weather will cleanse the air of pollen and relieve allergy sufferers, while also squelching the fire danger. When we get to Friday, behind the second low pressure area will come a gusty wind, lots of clouds, and the risk of a few passing instability showers as a broad upper level low pressure area will still have to cross the region.
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 50-57 Cape Cod, 58-65 elsewhere. Wind NW 10-20 MPH, a few higher gusts.
