I apologize for not posting the past few days – I was busy with drivers ed through Friday and had other things going on the past two mornings. After a wild early morning today where two tornado warnings were posted in Middlesex County, MA, and serious damage reports in Marlborough and Concord about 40 minutes apart, a damage survey will be sent by NWS Taunton to find out if the damage was tornadic or straight-line. This severe weather was an outside possibility with low CAPE, but decent shear, high dewpoints (at the time) and low LCL’s should have been a dead giveaway of a potential – even if very low as this appeared to be all along until it happened – of a sneaky tornado or other severe weather event.
As for today, a frontal passage just behind the overnight rain will make things much drier and cooler. Skies will clear out to sunny conditions as the day goes on. High temperatures will range from the low 70s in the hills and the coast to the upper 70s in the Merrimack Valley into inland Boston metro, where scattered 80 degree readings are likely. Dewpoints will drop back into the 40s and low 50s. Winds will be NW at 10-15 mph.
Have a good Monday!
