The evening temps dropped to about 3° and held there for the night.Some clouds moved in overnight and it is completely overcast here this morning.
No precip is expected,however,until this evening.Temps are expected to reach the middle teens today.

This mornings visual


Well it wasn't very nice here yesterday and no better this morning.If anything,it is worse,now the wind is quite brisk as seen in this pic:

Yesterday's temps were in the 5° range and overnight the temp dropped to 1.Some areas were forecast to get flurries overnight but there weren't any in this area to my knowledge.
There's no real improvement in store until Sunday when temperatures should begin to rise to more normal values.

Foggy and Cool

I don't know why but this morning's post didn't get published when I uploaded it by email so here it is:





This mornings visual


Yesterday was the last of our nice days for awhile.We had temps around 20° and now it has cooled off considerably and is expected to stay this way for the next few days.
This morning it is quite cool and foggy.There were a few heavy showers earlier this morning but none presently.
By the looks of the forecast,we won't be having any real good weather again until Monday....they are even mentioning the possibility of wet snow for tonight.
Oh well,it was a pretty good run.

Another Warm Day On The Way

This mornings cam shot


Yesterday was once again a very fine day (how many is that now?) and things are really starting to green up here.Temps were in the mid-teens in the afternoon and it was generally clear.The evening temps dropped to just slightly above freezing and it remained clear.
Today is expected to be an exceptionally nice day here with temps forecast to be in the upper teens,may hit the lower 20s.Showers are possble later today and into tomorrow with clearing tomorrow afternoon and staying warm.
They are still saying it will be cooler in the latter part of the week.I don't entirely concur with that.....the New England weather is calling for warm weather and that usually influnences ours.We shall see what happens.

Really Nice

This morning's WEST cam shot

We are into a really nice stretch of weather here on the South Shore.Yesterday was a T-shirt day with very mild temps,lots of sun and light winds.The warmth stayed with us until sunset when the temp dropped to about 5°.
It was clear overnight and it's looking great here this morning.We are expecting today's temps to be similar to yesterday.
The forecast has been changed from yesterday and now we may possibly see some showers on Tuesday.
