We took the dogs (yes, there's an "s" on that...we're babysitting my fiance's sister's 4-month old puppy for the week...I forgot how exhausting having a little puppy is!) for a walk and they were pooped, then I ran only 2.5 miles and I was pooped! That heat really takes it out of you. So for those of you out there that ran 26.2 miles...or even half of that...congratulations! I am really impressed with your stamina even on a cool day, but with record-breaking heat, all I can say is "wow!"
Today will be cooler, but still quite warm in the upper 70s to lower 80s. It'll even be in the 70s on the Cape and Islands today now that we have a northwest wind, instead of a southerly wind. Tomorrow will be more seasonable in the upper 50s along the coast and lower 60s inland. Clouds try to work in very late in the day on Thursday, but most of the day looks sunny and pleasant near 70°.
A stationary front is going to set up shop and give us a good chance for some much needed rain. We'll see scattered showers Friday night and off and on rain on Saturday. The best chance of heavier rain will be Sunday afternoon and night, then it tapers back off to showers Monday morning. I know the timing is poor, but the ground certainly needs the rain!
