Turning to The Sun
Posted by Pete Bouchard
That front took its time scooting offshore, but when it did, the dry air was right behind.
Dewpoints are dropping through the 50s this afternoon/evening as the dry air moves in. The end result is a refreshing airmass and some beautiful days ahead.
Expect tons of sun both Tuesday and Wednesday. I'm seeing highs in the low 70s both days. With the sun nearly at its highest point in the sky, the UV indes will be high and the days will be longest. These are the times we covet in New England for their beauty. Get out and enjoy!
Then the weather starts slipping on Thursday. Showers should move in by afternoon, and steadier rain is possible into the night and all day Friday. At issue is a semi-tropical (no name yet) system moving out of the Gulf of Mexico. Doesn't look like a powerhouse storm, but there's A LOT of water at stake here.
So how are you reading into the weekend forecast? What hints is Pete dropping on the 7day? Is it really totally washed out Saturday? Hey, I know the weekends are precious in summer (we only have 13 left), so let me put it to you bluntly: I promise nothing and I'm giving you the bleakest, wettest forecast. (Yeah, I'm Mr. Sunshine.) We'll fine tune the timing - perhaps even hurrying the rain out of here sooner - later in the week, so don't cancel afternoon plans on Saturday just yet. The week is young, and with heavy rain moving out of the Gulf of Mexico and riding up the Eastern Seaboard, anything's fair game.
