Cool pattern continues

Fans of the past week's weather will be happy to learn that similar weather is in store for the Institute for the remainder of the week. The absence of any strong weather systems will result in mostly sunny skies to begin the day, with a sea breeze and a scattering of shallow cumulus clouds developing in the afternoon. Our proximity to the Massachusetts Bay will keep temperatures from escaping the mid-50s (°F), causing high temperatures to be some 10°F cooler than normal for this time of year.

The pattern will finally break over the weekend, as a storm develops offshore and moves up the coast from Saturday night into Sunday. The storm will bring the potential for windy and rainy conditions to Eastern Massachusetts during that time. Afterwards, a warmer air mass and generally offshore flow will likely contribute to slightly warmer temperatures to start off next week.
