Pinks are mixed precipitation (freezing rain, sleet). Blues are snow. NOTE: Radar data is susceptible to a phenomena called anomalous propagation. This generally happens at night and appears as a area of 20 dBZ echos (darkest green) which is centered around each radar site and expands with time. To try and reduce the problem, low echo values near the radar sites have been removed.

Good morning Mass.
When I posted the strange cloud I guess I lost the radar and webcam.
I have them both up and running again.
Enjoy the day.

Good Afternoon Folks!

Finally managed to get on the computer this noontime, as it's getting increasingly harder each day due to continued freeze-ups, etc. Hope it doesn't conk out on me just yet, as I have other current concerns that are taking priority just now.

Grateful that we have, thus far, escaped from all the nasty weather that's been closely skirting our area this past week. We've received a few deluges and claps of thunder but without any resulting incident. Seems we're still not out of the woods just yet, as more t'storms are forecasted daily well into next week. I'm not sure how it will effect Boston's annual Fourth of July celebrations, but already there are some major changes in store due to the recent acts of terrorism, etc. Personally, I could do without any further natural or man-made explosions for awhile. Time for some quiet contemplation, reflection and a sunnier focus. Lately, there have been too many trials going on with too few tribulations.

(((Pros))) ~ So sorry to learn that summer's also exacerbating your serious sinus problems. I know many, including myself, who have been plagued past or present with the same misery during either usual or odd times of the year. All this erratically brutal weather certainly doesn't help, especially, when hot and muggy one moment, then chilly and quite damp the next! Hope you and/or your doctor can get a handle on a safe thorough solution real soon!

Quoting Bogon:
Mass, I wanted to drop by and say something cheerful. What can you say about daily clouds and rain? The plants and ducks like it, I guess.

When I was a kid I liked to take off my shoes and go splashing through the puddles. Are we too old for that now? Often it's the simple things that bring joy. :o)


Hi Bogon! ~ I, too, enjoyed those carefree youthful days of "splashin' through" a few puddles left in the road. Unfortunately, age and circumstances have caught up with me. These days, I'm more apt to be driving around than walking through them, as I'm forced to travel far more by car than foot.

Your post about "splashing through puddles" has also made me think about an episode of the now defunct long-running BBC comedy, "The Vicar of Dibley". It involved an enamored female vicar running down a dirt road that contained a well known deep puddle. Unfortunately, she had to step into it in order to hide from a love interest, whom she was secretly following. It resulted in her being totally immersed (over the head) in water. This was quite the funny episode, especially, to those of us who fondly recall those days when simple puddles in the road didn't mask deep neglected holes.





New! ~ Hope we don't end up with any seriously deep puddles caused by flooding in the days ahead. Hubby's taking these few hours of reprieve to mow down those ugly mushrooms and clover that's recently overtaken our entire yard! Don't know which is worse ... a brown drought ridden lawn or a soggy mushroom yielding one the next. LOL! In any event, hope you can hang tough till the weekend arrives and manage some enjoyably relaxing periods throughout it!

Hi, came by to say hello before I go plop myself down with a hot water bottle on my sinuses. It is hot and very humid here, and my sinuses are reflecting the nasty day! You take good care of yourself. I need to come back to read what you have been up to but after I get rid of the sinuses problems.

Good Morning, Folks!

Well, today brings us the second in a succession of hazy, hot and humid days that should last till mid-week or so. Unfortunately, a few severe t'storms and then potentially record breaking rainfall may cool us down a bit by the end of the week. Hopefully, any severe storms will just skirt around us or dissipate so to avoid serious damage.

Saw an equally stellar second showing of the "Super Moon" late last night. It provided some beautiful ambiant light to an otherwise low-lit or darkened neighborhood.

Won't be long now before our skies are once again lit up by exploding shards of light coming from neighboring 4th of July firework displays. Actually, I wish we could celebrate our freedoms through much quieter marvels, such as our current luminous moonlit sky, rather than seemingly neverending loud flashes and bangs generated from man-made devices in neighboring towns/cities. In any event, it all celebrations hinge on our weather forecast throughout next week.



I'm posting a small relaxing token in honor of last night's "Super Moon" and today's outdoor summer sizzler! Hope it provides a relaxing summer oasis during a particularly difficult weather week ahead!

Massachusetts excluding the cape and the islands... and all of
Rhode Island excluding Block Island

* from Thursday morning through Saturday morning.

* As the ground is quite saturated... forecast total rainfall
amounts of 2 to 4 inches... locally higher in spots... will result
in areas of significant urban and low-lying flooding. In
addition... small streams and creeks already swollen from recent
rains will likely swell again in some cases out of their banks
and above flood stage. Main-Stem rivers may also rise out of
their banks and above flood stage.

* Residents living in flood prone areas and/or along river banks
should be alert and aware of the heavy rain potential and
changing conditions Thursday into Saturday. Motorists during the
Thursday evening and Friday commutes should be prepared for
reduced visibilities with heavy rain... along with the potential
for water to pond or inundate roadways. If encountering flooded
roadways remember... turn around... Don/T drown.

Good Morning, Folks!

The sun's struggling to make an appearance this morning after yesterday's lengthy rainfall had parts of Mass. breaking a few records. It's presently a chilly 62F this am with expected highs to reach near 70F by afternoon. The remainder of the week looks a tad disturbing with the potential for more heavy rainstorms forecasted for tomorrow through Friday. Thanks darn invasive jet stream for setting us up for a late spring NorEaster! This will make two Fridays in a row of having to travel 20 plus miles each way through heavy rains and/or winds! It doesn't help that the return lane on the highway has remained, for whatever inexplicable reasons, completely snarled (rain or shine) for a quite a few months now. Will definitely be seeking a quicker alternative back-route home!

Well, come early Friday afternoon, watch out, here I come!
TOOT, TOOT, BEEP, BEEP, SPLASH, SPLASH, ARGH, ARGH! LOL!





May everyone stay safe, dry and well until the next time!

Good Morning!



May most everyone be experiencing the same sun-filled, warm, summery-like Sunday that's returned to our area and pleasantly enveloping us! Unfortunately, tomorrow's another day and may bring along more rain with a t'boomer both late tomorrow and Tuesday. Well, in the meantime, we plan to make the most of this glorious day while it lasts! To think, summer's official arrival, on June 21st, is less than two weeks away! Hope it's far safer than these past couple months of spring!

Good Morning!

"What A Difference a Day Makes", especially, now that our weakened version of T/S Andrea brought only several hours of early evening into early am heavy rainfall, has now lifted North towards parts of Maine, before skirting through parts of the Canadian Maritimes, then heading easterly out to sea!

Presently, the sun's really struggling to make an appearance so to dry us off and warm us up a bit! This am's started off with temps of 55F and are to gradually climb to the low 70's. Tomorrow seems to be the real pick of the weekend with sunshine and much warmer temps of 79F on the horizon! YEAH! Unfortunately, Monday - Thursday's forecast shows potential t'boomers. Glad that Friday looks great, as I have to be out and about traveling again.

Hope all those effected by T/S Andrea, especially in Florida as well as up along the Eastern seaboard, are able to fully dry out before any further storms ahead! All 'n all, seems crash, boom, bang, rain, mold and mildew will be the big buzzwords for much of our week ahead! UGH!

Till then, may we all get to enjoy whatever warmth, sunshine and settled weather we can get!

Good Evening Folks!

Been an emotionally exhaustive two days due to my much elder half-brother's wake yesterday and an early am funeral, internment, then repast, to attend today. Hard to believe the traffic jams heading home (North) on the main highway both early last evening and mid-afternoon today. Heading South to these events was far less taxing. These days, I'm so grateful that I don't have to commmute this route 30 miles each way in and out of Boston (as in the late 70's into 80's), as my aged nervous system would become quickly spent from this now far more congestive highway system.

Currently, we're now deeply entrenched within T/S Andrea's effects, as its brought along much steadier heavier rainfall since just earlier this evening. Nevertheless, this large system should gradually lighten between daybreak and noon tomorrow, before lifting up towards Maine and skirting past part of the Canadian Maritimes before heading east out to sea. Strangely enough, we haven't felt any types of strong wind gusts accompanying it.

Naturally, Andrea's effects here are not nearly as serious or damaging as that in much of Florida, but when all is said and done, we could be looking at an estimated 3-5 plus inches of total saturation. It may be great for some of our previously dry lawns/gardens, but not so much for people living in low lying or flood prone areas!! Thankfully, we live just above that grade or level.

Hope all those living along the affected Eastern Seaboard are A-OK and haven't ended up with too much storm related damage! So far, so good up here!

I leave you tonight with an appropriate song to listen to during this very rain-soaking event:




P.S. Congrats to our Boston Bruins hockey team for their complete sweep and NHL Eastern Championship trophy win over the Pittsburgh Penguins earlier tonight at the Boston Garden! Now, it's onto the larger staked final Stanley Cup playoff series (against the Blackhawks?) for hopefully another victorious big win!

Good Morning, Folks!

I have a few moments to post T/S Andrea's current speedy track up the Eastern Seaboard and which is to effect much of Mass. etc. by this evening into Sat. am. A flood watch will probably go into effect during that time.

Hope Florida hasn't become too submerged by the heavy rains prior to or during T/S Andrea or damaged by those now ten spawned tornadoes in parts thereof (as posted in Dr. Master's blog today)!

Hope the majority of rainfall holds off till mid-afternoon!

We have had so much fun through the years :) I thank you!

So sorry to hear of your loss of a dear relative. Peace this weekend. I hope you have good weather for your travels, although a somber destination. Stay well!

Hello again, folks!

Unfortunately, I received sad news later this morning, by my much older, half-sister, age 88, father's side, (whose husband also just passed away in January), that her younger, my elder half-brother (age 85), also father's side, passed away this morning from a lengthy battle with Altzheimers. It's really a relief to know that he's no longer suffering so. His wife is taking it rather well considering that she's mostly been the one to deal with his ever-increasing health issues these past six years. The poor gal is emotionally and physically spent, but has close friends and relatives by her side to help with the arrangments, etc.

I probably won't be able to get onto WU until perhaps the weekend, as it will be a busy week ahead readying ourselves for Thursday's wake and Friday's funeral in Woburn. Hope the weather will hold up throughout, as it's hard dealing with miserable weather on top of everything else.

May everyone have a safe and healthy week ahead of them. Will try and get back online again by the weekend or the beginning of next.

Good Morning, Ylee and All!

Ylee, thanks so much for the link to that "Blue Shutter Inn" webcam of "Good Harbor Beach" in Gloucester, MA! I just looked at their cam and realized I know that bridge and area quite well! It looks a bit drizzly and murky there today, but will be interesting to see all the nearby beach-going citizens basking or walking on its sand as we officially enter into summer in a few weeks time!

Regarding the recent turbulent weather in OK, it was so sad to learn about those three very
experienced (25 yrs for Tim Samaras) "storm chasers" all of whom perished while in pursuit of the complicated twister and conditions in El Reno, OK the other day. Supposedly, Dr. Jeff Masters was a good friend of theirs and was interviewed on a cable news show, by phone, about these and other similar tragedies and felt, perhaps, it was time for MET scientists began implementing weather drones, instead of humans, to gather all such serious weather-related information. Sounds like an excellent idea considering the cost of precious human life it's now taking!

So relieved that last evening's nasty storms, traveling up from the mid-west, seemed to dissipate into moderate rainfall by the time they reached us here in eastern Mass.! It's been such a terribly turbulent spring season already and hope that it doesn't venture well into the current hurricane season or summer!!

At least, we're back to more seasonably comfortable temps today, but am surprised at the big difference in temps forecasted here for Saturday! A high of 60F??? YIKES! That would be a -30F degree difference from this past one!

Closing on a much happier note, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR DEAR FRIEND, {{{JUS}}}, may she have a wonderful celebratory day, along with great health and weather ahead of her!

Hi, Mass! Your recollection of teenage summers at Good Harbor prompted me to go out on a quest, to see if there was a webcam in the area!

I have, I think! Although it doesn't play on the computer here at work, Blue Shutters Beachside Inn has a streaming webcam of Good Harbor! I hope it is a good one!

I hope your rainy day Monday will pass quickly!

Area forecast discussion
National Weather Service Taunton Massachusetts
4:06 PM EDT Sun Jun 2, 2013


Synopsis...
scattered thunderstorms will impact western CT/Massachusetts and southwest New Hampshire into early this evening. Some of these storms may be severe with damaging winds...large hail and heavy rainfall. For the remainder of the region scattered thunderstorms in a weakened state will overspread the region overnight from west to east. Monday...a slow moving cold front will deliver periods of potentially heavy rain until the front slides offshore by Monday night. Drier and much cooler weather follows behind the cold front beginning Monday night through midweek. A coastal storm may bring more showers by the end of the week.

Good Morning Folks!

It appears parts of New England, i.e., MA, CT, VT, NH, ME is under a severe t'storm watch (271) till, at least, 8:00 pm tonight. Those of us living within or near the designated warning areas should keep our eyes to the skies and/or on news media for updated reports throughout the course of the day. A cold front is moving in along with these storms and will create beautiful more seasonal temps of or near 75F as highs throughout the remainder of our week! Just hope we survive any accompanying nasty weather beforehand! Seems parts of upper Maine, no less, has a reported 30 percent chance of a tornado strike, per TWC, in conjunction with the severity of these storms. Hard to believe that tornadoes can now threaten that far East or Down East regions in the U.S.!

Area forecast discussion
National Weather Service Taunton Massachusetts
11:48 am EDT Sun. Jun 2, 2013


Synopsis...
One more day of warm temperatures will give way to some showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Some of these storms be severe across western New England. Tonight and Monday...a slow moving cold front will deliver periods of potentially heavy rain until the front slides offshore by Monday night. Drier and much cooler weather follows behind the cold front beginning Monday night through midweek. A coastal storm may bring more showers by the end of the week.

* SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH IN EFFECT ILL 8:00 PM *




Midday update...


Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been posted. The watch box does extended eastward into Middlesex and Worcester counties of Massachusetts...however the threat is much higher for the western portions of this County. The highest risk is across western CT/Massachusetts into southwest New Hampshire. Main threat is damaging winds. Previous discussion still valid.
************************************************* **************************************************
Not much change from previous forecast regarding severe weather potential. Only additional information is regarding timing. Theta-E ridge and sb instability axis moves very slowly eastward today. Thus storms will enter western CT/Massachusetts and southwest New Hampshire between noon and 2 PM. Thereafter storms will struggle to move eastward and probably not reach
Hartford/Sringfield/Worcester/Manchester until 8 PM. Dry weather should prevail until dark across Rhode Island and eastern Massachusetts especially southeast Massachusetts.

June's Bustin' Out All Over!
OH!
Thanks Mass!


That song has been stuck in my head for the last hour!
And I'm not even old enough to know it. Unfortunately my mother had the record. LOL
:o)

Wishing you a happy month of June.


Hiya Rob!

LOL! For some odd reason, that ancient tune from the old musical, "Carousel", came to mind when trying to come up with a song related to this month. Unfortnately, I am old enough to remember it first hand, along with the many other vinyl collections of musicals my Mom would play on first our monaural, then stereo record players. Usually, come summer, one couldn't go outside without occasionally hearing another neighbor playing the same sort of musical showtune from within their wide-open livingroom windows. It gave us kids something to hum, mock or keep pace to while walking on sidewalks or bicycling nearby along side the street. LOL! At least, nowadays, there's no longer the danger of that happening, as it's been replaced by more modern day rock blaring through bass-boosted home or car stereos. The only so-called musical sounds I hear outside these days are loud thump-a-thump-a-thumps, etc.!!! LOL!

In any event, hope you and yours have a great month of June, as well, and are able to escape much of the wrathful weather that's been effecting mostly the mid-west but heading towards Mass. as of tomorrow night into Monday. Hopefully, these serious t'storms won't produce any further damage or tornadic activity great here or elsewhere! There's been far too much already!

FOR VERY OLD TIMES SAKE.. EVERYBODY SING, RUN OR HIDE! LOL!

GOOD AFTERNOON, {{{PROS}}}, and A HAPPY SAFE MONTH OF JUNE TO YOU AND EVERYONE, TOO!

It's "National Rose Month", so I'm leave you and others with just a few of its lovely treasures. Thought I'd also post a tribute to Pros's pet garden frog, Windsong, to boot!





My thoughts and prayers remain with those Oklahomans who've greatly suffered, these past couple of weeks, from serious storms, floods and tornadoes. Last night's horrific saga, looked apocalyptic as it seemed to last forever while amazingly ravaging through some of those either same or nearby towns and cities of this past week. Hope that they and others soon receive a permanent reprieve from this spring's on-going harsh atmospheric influences that have created such nightmares in these and other surrounding regions or states!


Currently, Mass. remains in HHH-mode with air quality alerts and temps reaching near record levels in some places. Methuen is presently at 92F degrees and could rise a bit further as the afternoon progresses.
