Flashboards are in, thank God, the DEP and the Conservation Commission! Now we need rain. In spring when the soils in the watershed are already wet/saturated, the majority of any rainfall will end up in the lake as run off. Fuddy, the old dam caretaker, used to tell us that 1 inch of rain at this time can give us a 10 inch increase in the waterlevel. (the old engineer’s report confirms this info.) So 3 inches of rain would fill us nicely!
The weather according to Channel 7:
Much cooler air will continue to work from Boston to Worcester. Temps will go from the 80s to the 60s in an hour! Overnight lows in the low 50s. Partly cloudy skies. NE wind 5-15 mph.
Much cooler with sunny skies. Less humid with highs in the low 70s—mid 60s at the immediate coast.
Clear skies. Lows in the 50s.
Sunny & hot again. Highs near 90. Watch out for a late day t-storm.
Much cooler. Sunny skies. Highs in the upper 60s.
Sunny. Delightful. Highs in the 60s.
WBZ is calling for rain Weds and perhaps Friday and Saturday if not tonight. So between the two weather channels hopefully we’ll get something!
