How about yesterday? The 82 in Boston matched the warmest temp we've had since September 13th. Of course, with a wind gusting past 30mph and relative humidity near 18%, it certainly didn't feel oppressive.
We've lost the 80 degree weather for now, but that doesn't mean it won't be nice. We start off with lots of sunshine this morning, and will mix in just a few clouds with that sun this afternoon. Temps today run 10-12 degrees cooler than yesterday, but near 70 is just for many this time of year. The average high is in the mid 60s, so we're not far off that.
So how bout' that weekend? Overall, we make out ok. Saturday is the warmer and brighter of the two days with highs in the low to mid 60s at the coast, near 70 inland. I can't rule out a sprinkle or brief, light shower northwest of 495 in the afternoon, but the rain chance overall is low Sunday, the atmosphere is a bit more unstable and I expect a sprinkle of brief shower to be scattered about the area with the highest chance outside 495. The overall rain chance Sunday runs 20-30%, so not all towns will see rain, and even if you do get a shower, dry weather is still the dominate theme through the day. More clouds are around and highs range from the upper 50s along the immediate coast to mid 60s inland. At this point, graduation/birthday parties should still be a go on Sunday.
Enjoy the weekend!
