The weekend finished out the same way it started…cloudy, cool and damp. After a few hours of nice weather to begin Sunday, a wave of low pressure passed near the region and brought us periods of light to moderate rain during the afternoon and evening with temperatures falling into the 40s.
While the rain wasn’t overly heavy (totals ranging from about 1/10th to 1/3rd of an inch) it made for a rather ugly end to the weekend and continued our theme of an unsettled April (of the first 28 days of the month, at least a trace of precipitation has been recorded on 21 days).
Sunday’s weather system is pulling away from the area today and we have been left with a (brief) period of dry weather to kick off the work week.
Visible satellite imagery shows plenty of clear skies across the Northeast and that will be the main weather story for our Monday. Expect sunshine for most of the day today with just some increasing high thin clouds later in the afternoon and into the evening. Temperatures will climb into the lower and middle 50s around the area…which is about 5 to 8F below the average for the date (the average high temperature on April 29th is 59F at Hyannis).
Clouds will return to the area tonight with more wet weather in store for the area overnight tonight into the first part of Tuesday.
