Brighter weekend ahead

A series of slow moving storms has affected Boston’s weather for the past week. Overcast skies, breezy conditions, and intermittent precipitation have dominated the recent weather. These storms have also caused continuous flooding along the east coast of Massachusetts. The combination of ocean swells and high astronomical tide has put some coastal roads underwater. However, the ocean flooding and dreary weather should end by the start of the weekend. For today, residual precipitation will linger as the nor’easter over the west Atlantic finally begins to depart. In its wake, an area of high pressure will arrive in the northeastern U.S. A pattern of clear skies and warmer temperatures is in store by Saturday and into the middle of next week. This should keep the mythical and meteorological March “lion” under control for now!
