Still a fire danger this morning,but winds should lessen this afternoon,so the danger won't be as high.
Looks to be a nice weekend,seasonable and continued dry.Then next week,humid unsettled weather moves in,not raining all the time,but threat of showers and thunder each day.weather pattern,becomes blocked again,hopefully improving by the holiday weekend.

May 16th
Its warm,but very windy and its dry,so a very high fire danger out there,so hopefully people will be careful with cigarettes and small fires.
Cold front will cool things down and should be normal temps for the weekend.

May 15th
Cold morning,35 degrees,but from here temps will be warming,but the warming trend will be started by a round of showers this afternoon,sometime after 3 pm.Some places may get a downpour with some thunder,but other areas will only see a brief shower.Eventhough a cold front will pass through tonight,it will be warmer tomorrow,with temps around 80 if your away from the influence of the ocean.Tomorrow night another cold front moves through and we get cooler air with flow off the ocean through the weekend.

May 14th
In training,so didn't get by to my blog today,ready to leave for the day.
Been a mostly cloudy day for us,and cool,staying in the 50's for the most part.Some wet weather late tomorrow,and then warmer temps.Avoided any frost this morning when clouds moved in.

May 13th
Its mid May,and we have frost advisories for areas away from the coast.Not unusual for this time of year in our area.I don't do any planting until around Memorial day weekend,you just never know.I have neighbors lose their tomatoe plants when they planted this early.Should start to warmup again by Wednesday,but no real hot weather in sight.I've only hit 80 twice this spring so far.Had some rain Friday and saturday,but not much,certainly doesn't help the deficit in my area.SE Mass got a couple of inches Saturday morning.

Quoting NEwxguy:
GM,Mass, yes today is going to be a bad day, but I will survive. Major job today will be watching the clock.
I hope I don't trip and fall as I speed out of the office today.




We'll be watching the clock along with you, as
LIKE SANDS THROUGH THE HOUR GLASS, SO ARE THE "DAYS OF OUR LIVES".

I agree,considering how dry everything is,I would think there would be alerts up.
Texas was a very bad outbreak,and by the signs the Midwest may be in for a bad outbreak this weekend.Very large and vigorous storm is going to get going.Severe weather from Texas all the way up into the Chicago area.Hope Jus stays alert up there.

Morning, NEw!

I bet you're glad that it's finally Friday, although I'm sure you're not happy with the piled up deluge of work derived during the three day training reprieve. UGH! Hope you can somehow muddle through the day and your weekend's free.

Surprising how WU and NOAA haven't issued or posted any noticeable fire warning hazards today! I don't understand how just a slight difference in today's lower temps would eliminate the risk. Hmmmmm... am I or they missing something in the equation??? Well, at any rate, it would be nice to have one less thing to worry about!

I'm sure grateful we're not currently living in a climate or region conducive to those EO-4 and 3 tornadoes that killed, at least, six people and destroyed many homes in Granville, TX. Seems Texas has recently become a focal point for either man-made (fertilizer plant) or weather-related fatalities and destruction. Hope that none of us has to contend with any more horrors for some time to come as, to date, it's already been way too tumultuous for many!

Hiya NEw, I see you are in training. We will do our best to send you these great temps, but they may come with some t-storms. Late weekend looks fairly rough.

Poor Belle, you need to get a Bruins doggy coat for that poor girl. (She's much cuter than this doggie, though ;)

lunch break from my training.Kind of nice to be away from the grind of customer calls,but I know on Friday when I get back to the routine,I have a lot of catching up to do,but enjoying the break.
Redsox continue to tumble,another loss last night,so that makes 9 out of 11 losses.I guess I kind of expected it,since the quick start in April was totally unexpected.

Our Hockey team really pulled one out of the trash can last night.
I was watching and when they went down 4-1 with 11 minutes left,I decided to get some extra sleep and went to be.I was stunned listening to sports report this morning and see the big comeback.Great to see them go on further in the playoffs,but I have to ask why can't they do that all the time.

Mass,
been a crazy spring.



Alley,
Like you I learned a long time ago,do not rush the growing season in new england. I have peas in and they can't stand the below freezing.

Rob,
What ever it takes to get that warmth up here!!!

Too bad we can't just get some really big fans and spread our temps around, then everybody could be happy!

Good afternoon NEW. Going to need to pull out those woolies for tonite. Been a real chilly day here in SW Ont. Temps have only been 48F, woke up to 34F. No frost but there is always tonite. Sure glad I have no tender plants to worry about. Learned a long time ago not to put in plants until the May 23 wknd. Lots waiting for transplant in the cold frame. Another cool night tonight then warm up on Wed. Hopefully soon the weather patterns will stablize. Rain for the beginning of next week again. Oh well.

Have a great day dear one. Try not to overdo the workload.

Hi NEw!

Just got back from more outside errands, and glad that it's warmed up a few more degrees. Nevertheless, the current 56F is still a bit too brisk for my tastes, especially, after adjusting to the many days of recent near summery warmth!

Welcome to the ups and downs of such an unusual spring season! It's certainly forced the layered look back into style!! LOL!

Good Mornin', NEw!

Earlier this am, t'was quite the chilly eye opener when having to venture out into 50F degree temps for hubby and I to have our fasting labwork done! I feel like we're back to being charter members of the "Blue Man Group." LOL! Poor guy, what a double whammy for him to be experiencing on his birthday today! Well, once we thaw out and he rests up, I plan on taking him out for a special birthday dinner tonight. We .. ah, he certainly deserves it! LOL!

Thankfully, we don't have any seasonal plants or flowers already in the ground, so there are no concerns about tonight's overnight freeze/frost warnings. Hopefully, our lovely, just bloomed azalea bush out front and our budded rhododendron won't be affected either.

Hope you and your family had an enjoyable time celebrating Mothers Day yesterday! Fortunately, the temps remained comfortably warm and the periodic rains seemed to clear up by 1:00 pm. Glad our afternoon wasn't a complete wash out!

Quoting NEwxguy:
I will be doing some training, Tue.- Thurs.,so will be in the blogs on a limited basis,but will be updating at times.
Finally some training.

With all your years of knowledge and experience, etc., you should be the one instructing or training others ... not the other way around! In any event, good luck and hope this period allows you some relaxation or a pleasant change in focus from the regular workday grind!
