Weekend showers

Have you been noticing how it seems to be gray and rainy every weekend, then sunny as soon as Monday rolls around? What’s up with that? In any case, it’ll be gray and drizzly again this weekend. I hope you get the chance to soak up these last days of nice weather, because there’s a good chance we won’t be getting something this warm again until spring. There’s a cold front coming in this weekend which will remind us all that it is, in fact, October in New England.

Looking ahead to winter, a strong El Niño pattern remains in place in the Pacific. This suggests a less-snowy-than-average winter in New England, in contrast to a snowier winter in the South, Southwest, and Mid-Atlantic. Compared to last year’s abysmal snowfall in Boston, though, meteorologists are forecasting a return to something closer to normal. So, maybe start thinking about where you stored all your winter gear... two years ago.
