Doppler and I went for a walk around a half hour ago. Who stole spring? It’s chilly out there! Aren’t we nearly to June?
The automated weather observer at Meriden/Markham Airport reports 49° with a wind chill of 44°.
“I didn’t know we had wind chill in May,” Helaine noted.
Ain’t it the truth! Last May 24th Meriden hit 75°.
I’m not sure how chilly it will get, but in their tech discussion the Weather Service office covering Meriden writes:
COLD AIR ADVECTION WILL CONTINUE BEHIND THE FRONT. THE BOUNDARY LAYER WINDS INCREASE AND KEEP MORE MIXING CONDITIONS IN PLACE. A SLIGHTLY LOWER THAN MAV/MET BLEND WAS USED FOR LOWS WHICH WILL BE IN THE UPPER 40S.
So, even though they’re forecasting lower temperatures than the computer guidance (MAV/MET), the forecast might not be cold enough! And then there’s the rain, which has been with us on-and-off for the past few days.
A low pressure system just east of Boston is the culprit. It will weaken and temperatures will become more springlike for the weekend. Not tonight.
Doppler and I both say, “No mas!”
