May Gets Off To Fine Start

Matt Ross @ 12:59 AM


Today will be partly sunny with seasonable high temps in the low 70s.
Wednesday and Thursday will bring a slight warmup with partly sunny skies and highs in the mid 70s on Wednesday to near 80 on Thursday. Friday and Saturday are looking like transition days with some showers possible and highs around 70. Early next week will be slightly cooler with temps in the mid to upper 60s before a moderation to seasonal norms in the middle of next week. Our weather will be measurably better than Southern New England. Boston is experiencing the infamous Spring onshore flow as bands of rain back in from the ocean and a stiff northeasterly breeze keeps temps in the mid and upper 40s.

April Recap

April ended up finishing about 3 degrees above normal. While warm, it was nothing remarkable or memorable in a weather sense, and was the 8th warmest over the last 30 years. Despite drought fears, April finished with slightly above normal precipitation. While both halves of April were above normal, the latter half was just slightly so as most of the extreme warmth with respect to normal was confined to the first 15 days.

We don't know for sure what is in store for May, but it is a virtual certainty that it will be warmer in an absolute sense than April as May has never finished below 60 degrees at National Airport. My best guess is that May will average about normal to slightly below. As it is over 10 degrees warmer than April on average, normal to slightly below conditions should allow a very nice month with frequent 70-75 degree days.
