A Blemish In The Forecast
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Stellar stretch. Glorious sunshine, mild temps, refreshing breeze.
What could go wrong?
Well if you let the northeast wind sit for long enough, eventually it might scare up some clouds. We are and it will. These are low clouds and fog, and this time of year, they're selective and sneaky. I'm not thinking they'll foil up the forecast for the entire weekend - nor will they REALLY be that much of a nuisance. BUT they will tarnish and otherwise picture perfect stretch of weather.
When will they arrive on our shores? Not until late tomorrow - or even tomorrow night. They'll back off on Sunday, only to return on Monday morning. It will take a determined wind from the southwest to heave them offshore for good. And that's in the cards too.
Enter Tuesday and Wednesday. Not only will the wind turn into the southwest, but it will pump up the volume of heat too. Highs will take off on Tuesday and jump to near 90 in spots. But that's not all. Wednesday - Friday the steam heat will sizzle New England. Highs will reach into the 90s for three consecutive days - officially defining a heat wave in New England!
Until then, enjoy the temperate readings and watch for motorcycles and pedestrians this weekend.
And happy Father's Day to the dads!
