Solid Second Half
Posted by Chris Lambert
After a great start to the weekend, it's nice to see the second half of it will finish strong with sunny to partly cloudy skies and highs in the 80s on this Sunday. Coolest temps can be found this afternoon across Cape Ann and Cape Cod, with those locations holding in the middle to upper 70s thanks to a S to SSE breeze. For the rest of us, mid 80s are the target. With highs reaching the middle 80s, there will be enough moisture and instability for some cumulous clouds to puff up, but I don't expect any rain out of them this afternoon. That chance holds off for tomorrow.
Higher humidity and warmer temps return Monday and Tuesday and along with it... scattered storms each afternoon. Each day features a 30% chance of rain, so neither day is a washout by any stretch, but you know how it goes it the summer, any storm good produce localized downpours. Highs near 90 both day. The strength of the storms Tuesday depend on the timing of the front coming though. If we do indeed warm to 90+ with the front coming through mid-day or in the afternoon, a few of these storms may be capable of gusty winds and hail, so we'll keep an eye on it.
Low humidity and sunshine and cooler temps return on Wednesday.
