Be Careful For What You Wish for
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
63 degrees. 64 degrees. One is today's high temperature in Boston and the other was the high temperature for Boston on December 5th, 2011. #MessedUp. Well, be careful for what you wish for as we are going to crank things up by Wednesday (and beyond).
Thankfully, you still have this evening and much of tomorrow to prepare for the excessive heat & humidity (window A/C units) as temps tonight will drop into the low 50s--great for sleeping--and then rise into the 70s for tomorrow. When going from comfortable air to uncomfortable air one usually has to deal with clouds/showers/t-storms (or as us meteorological nerds call it--a warm front!). This time, only a few clouds will accompany the warm front during the day tomorrow and even the clouds will only partially block the sun. A nice June day.
Wednesday will be hot and humid, especially away from the ocean. Even at the coast, it will be much hotter than the 60s. Here are the numbers:
Hot enough for ya? Thursday will copy Wednesday with hazy sunshine, humid & hot conditions throughout the region. Even Friday offers temps near 90 as well as excessive humidity. That humidity will team up with a cool front (arriving by late day) and pop off some t-storms. Cooler and drier air arrives by the weekend.
PS....the 63 was in December and that 64 was today.
