Thank goodness for Saturday. It was one of the nicest days of the Spring so far with tons of sunshine, deep blue skies, a refreshing – but not too annoying – northwesterly breeze and temperatures well into the 60s. It was nearly perfect.
Sadly, we just can’t seem to string together a series of warm spring days.
Clouds advanced Sunday evening and filled the sky overnight…with showers developing thereafter. The clouds and wet weather are associated with the first of two low pressure centers that will move by to our south over the next couple of days…yielding an extended period of ugly weather.
As for today…expect cloudy and damp conditions with morning showers eventually becoming a steady cold afternoon rain. Temperatures will struggle to climb out of the middle and upper 40s…in fact, readings may even tick downward a degree or two this afternoon as the steadier rain envelopes the region.
After “drying out” a bit overnight tonight and into the first part of Monday (still cloudy, still chilly, some mist/drizzle) a second storm center will organize of the Mid-Atlantic coast and move northeastward, passing south of the Cape Monday night. This system will bring another round of soaking rain – and a gusty onshore wind to boot – to the area late Monday afternoon and into Monday night.
