Summer Weekend? Not Quite
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Nice summery day today. After we fried the fog, the sun brought us to the brink of 80 in many spots - at least away from the coast. Clouds raced in by afternoon, and with a quick glance at the radar to our far west, we have our work cut out for us this weekend.
What I'm not seeing Saturday or Sunday is a warm, bright setup. We'll have to fight for our sun both days, and showers will threaten both early and late on Saturday and generally throughout the day on Sunday. That said, the threat is small, only around 40% Sunday.
In the wake of the surprise tornado in Stoughton yesterday, everyone's jumpy about the thunder threat. Who's under the gun tomorrow? Mainly north/west of Boston in the afternoon. Primary threat will be gusty winds and some small hail. Winds will whipping by late afternoon, with some gusts near or over 30mph.
Sunday will settle down, but with a front hanging overhead, there remains the risk of a few widely scattered and brief showers. Mid 60s ought to do it.
Cool snap next week should be snuffed out by mid/late week...as warm, humid air returns...along with a chance at a few storms.
To all the moms out there (and mine especially): HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!!
