Dew point values have climbed to near 70F this morning, creating yet another soupy morning around the area. That, plus tropical moisture from the remnants of Hurricane Nate, is making for a gray and very damp feeling as we start Columbus Day.
The good news is…deeper moisture and stronger atmospheric ingredients needed for steadier and heavier rain are passing to the north and west of the region today… so while most of New England will experience off and on showers and downpours throughout Monday, we will be mainly rain-free through the day, with just a few quick showers passing overhead.
The bad news is…it’ll be tough to shake this morning’s murky conditions and it will remain very humid throughout the day. In addition, a period of strong gusty southwest winds will develop later today and persist through the first part of tonight.
A frontal zone will finally shift offshore tomorrow, allowing drier air to seep back into the area.
