Well,its about that time of the season when people along the coast start wondering what the upcoming tropical season is going to be like.Everywhere you look someone is making a prediction.The truth is noone knows.We are entering an El Nino event in the Pacific,which generally reduces the number of storms,mostly because it increases wind shear in the Atlantic,but noone should assume this will be an easy season,as the saying that is thrown around alot says, it only takes one to make it a bad season.
There is one invest out east of Bermuda trying to organize,but it really doesn't have a prayer,but it just reminds us that we are getting into that time of year.
Our weather has cooled off considerably today,temps in the 40's this morning and heading into the 60's rather than the 80's and 90's of the past two days.Still going to be above normal through the end of the week,before an extended period of beneficial rains set in, probably Saturday night into Monday.This is really needed as we are bone dry.Another high risk fire danger today.

TV music legend Dick Clark died today.What a loss.Those of us older folks on here grew up with Dick Clark.Anyone entertainer who wanted to make it big would try to get Dick Clark's attention.For years American Bandstand was a staple on afternoon TV.He will be sorely missed.

It was nice to feel the coolness this morning,the next few mornings may even drop into the 30's,brrrrr.
Oh well, we still have a ways to go before we get consistent days of warmth,these days are just a bonus.
Checking back through the past months into last year.Last June was the last month that was below normal and this month continues the much above normal.

Hi NEw!

What a rude awakening this am with temps of only 48F degrees! My ole body thermostat is certainly feeling the effects. BRRR! LOL! Well, I guess today's return to more seasonal coolness provides us some benefit in the slight reduction of fire hazard warnings and a a very high pollen count. Yesterday's pollen count was a whopping 11.80 our of 12.00! Today, it's been slightly lowered to 9.80, but not noticeable enough. I know my hubby's been having a real field day with his allergies along with everything else. A-CHOO and etc.!

I haven't really been following our Boston sports teams much, but I heard on a TV sports report that the Bruins have been in real headlocks with the Washington team. Nevertheless, I don't think they could come close to some of those brawls, seen decades ago, ( 1970-1 ) when Derek Sanderson or some of his fellow compadres were at the helm. Now, there was an era of some real bloody fisticuffs... eh? LOL! Good thing I've never fainted at the sight of blood then or now.

Well, at least today's sunny again, despite being reasonably cool, so it shouldn't hurt too much while venturing outside on needed errands.

Hope your remaining work day is decent, that Prince continues to comfortably hold his own and that the weekend will be here before we know it. Won't mind any cool rain-soaked weather just as long as it's truly beneficial.

...ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER POTENTIAL FROM LATE THIS MORNING INTO
THIS EVENING FOR MOST OF MASSACHUSETTS...MOST OF RHODE ISLAND...
NORTHERN CONNECTICUT AND SOUTHERN NEW HAMPSHIRE...

HIGH PRESSURE WILL SLOWLY MOVE INTO THE REGION TODAY...BRINGING
MORE VERY DRY CONDITIONS. RELATIVE HUMIDITIES ARE EXPECTED TO FALL
TO BETWEEN 15 AND 20 PERCENT ACROSS MOST OF THE REGION AWAY FROM
THE COAST. WINDS WILL BE LOWER THAN THE LAST FEW DAYS...MAINLY
FROM THE NORTH AND NORTHEAST AT AROUND 10 MPH.

STATE FIRE OFFICIALS HAVE INDICATED THAT FUELS ARE VERY DRY. EVEN
WITH THE LIGHT WINDS...THERE WILL BE AN ELEVATED RISK FOR FIRE
SPREAD IF ANY BRUSH FIRES START TODAY.
