Baby Showers

By Nili Harnik

Satellite pictures show a beautiful rain spiral over the northern Midwest, associated with a mutual interaction of a surface cyclone and an upper level trough. This system will pass north of us tomorrow evening, leaving tails of rain over northern New England. We will feel its effects as the wind will shift direction and the temperature will drop slightly; we may even get a bit of rain. The effects of this system will linger in the area through wednesday, with slight clearing on thursday. So far, this month has been wetter than usual. We are rapidly catching up with the deficit left over from the extraordinarily dry summer.

Today: A sunny but deceptive start, clouds building up later on in the day. Moderate winds from the southwest, becoming gusty in the middle of the day. High 75F (24C).

Tonight: Winds changing direction to westerly as the cold front passes. Chance of light rains all through the night. Low 52F (11C).

Wednesday: Partial clearing during the day. High 70F (21C). Low 45F (7C).

Thursday: A bit colder than Wednesday. Partly cloudy. High around 62F (17C). Low 42F (6C).
