Forecast: Dry And Seasonable Pattern Continues

I feel like the weather the past few days is payback for that lousy April we had. If you're going to take pictures of spring in New England, the past few days certainly provided ample opportunity. The leaves continue to grow, the grass continues to grow and the flowers continue to bloom.

Of course if it lasted like this all the time everything would start dying, so we've got to have some rain at some point, but this pattern is pretty amazing.

The one thing we've been seeing the past few days is of course the fog in the morning and today will be no exception. Some areas have fog which is incredibly dense with visibility near-zero with other areas having just a lighter fog. The past few mornings as I've been walking in the lower spots the fog is quite thick but if I climb a little hill then I actually can get above the fog and see the clear skies.

Today will feature more in the way of sunshine with cool temperatures along the coast and warm temperatures inland. This is going to continue again for Thursday and Friday before funnel system approaches this weekend.

The exact timing of the warm front will determine whether Mother's Day is filled with showers or whether we see showers overnight Saturday ending on Sunday. Some rainfall would be nice as it would continue the healthy growth of our spring bloom.
