Wind Advisory Posted Until Saturday 1 AM
The National Weather Service Boston office has issued a wind advisory until Saturday 1 PM for much of Southern New England. Strong high pressure moving into the Central US is escorting a cold Canadian air mass into the US. The cool shot looks brief but it will be quite cold tomorrow morning. Winds may gust up to 50 MPH through early evening,
Here is the US surface chart as of 4 PM. Notice the tightly packed lines (isobars) in the Northeast.
Wind gusts have been increasing all afternoon and will build throughout the evening. The atmosphere is moving quickly so the strongest winds decrease after 1 AM. Temperatures will drop overnight into the 20's.
High temps tomorrow are in the low to mid 40's and sunny skies. The winds will not be strong but they will bite. It will be slightly warmer Saturday night with temps in the 30's. Sunny skies remain through Sunday and Monday with temperatures rising into the 50's. Watching a coastal storm on Tuesday which looks like it may have serious consequences for coastal Southern New England. The moon will make its closest approach to earth in decades on Monday. It will also be the full Beaver moon so the celestial influence on the tides will be strong. It also looks like a nor'easter will develop and pass through or near Southern New England. I'll be watching.
