Summer Rolls On
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Heat got a hold of us this afternoon. Highs soared to the low 90s from Somerville/Medford out to Brookline. There were also 90 degree temps in Orange and Fitchburg. Otherwise, most everyone hit upper 80s - with 89 being the high temp of choice for MANY communities.
If you're one of those towns/cities feeling like you missed out on the fun, fret not. There are several more opportunities in the days ahead. Let's see....tomorrow, Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. And we won't be lacking in the sticky air department either. Humidity will hold sway as dewpoint temperatures will stay in the mid/upper 60s. In fact, there's very little relief until we hit the middle or latter half of the week.
Thunderstorms? Yep, they'll get more "air time" in the week ahead. Best chance for getting hit seems to be on Sunday - although we're not talking washout here. It's important to stress that these storms will have a penchant for making rain too. If you're caught under one, the gutters and storm drains will flow - bigtime. What's more is when the sun comes back out. Prepare for a steam bath.
Yep, we're knee-deep in summer here folks. Stay cool and soak it in....
...'cause you know it won't last 'round here.
