Spring will need a kick start again

Unfortunately, we still have another day or two of dreary weather. The sky will be filled with clouds tonight into Friday.

A few locations may get lucky enough to see a couple breaks of sun Thursday afternoon.

For Wednesday night, Thursday and Friday night, there will be areas of fog, spotty drizzle and a passing shower or two, here and there.

Cool easterly winds off the Atlantic will keep temperatures well below normal; mainly 60’s along the coast up to around 70 inland. The normal high should be about 78. It has been this way practically the whole week.

The first sign of a change will come on Friday but unfortunately, the weather will get worse before getting better.  A cold front
will push into out stagnant weather pattern and produce showers and thunderstorms. They will be more prevalent on Friday into
Friday night and may also be heavy to locally strong. We’ll watch it closely.

The good news is this system that may finally be strong enough to nudge the gray and damp weather far enough offshore so that the weather improves for the weekend. Saturday/Flag Day may start gray but the clouds will give way to sun and the humidity will lower.

Highs will reach to around 80.

For Fathers’ Day, sunshine and warm temperatures will prevail with highs closer to 85.

So after all this, another great weekend of weather could time out perfectly. However, don’t get too used to it. As the map shows, weather systems are totally blocked in the Atlantic. It’s like a traffic jam. So it’s quite possible that we will go back into a prolonged period of  muggy, cloudy weather with a shower or thunderstorm threat for a few days next week.
