Sand Space A Premium
Posted by Chris Lambert
Hazy, hot and humid weather continues through the weekend, and that means, the beaches fill up fast on this first August weekend. High tide is early this afternoon, so get those towels laid out this morning as sand space starts shrinking quite a bit by lunchtime.
With all that hazy sun, sunscreen is a must and drinking lots of water is not a bad idea either. Also, the good news is that at the coast, temps will be a bit cooler as winds turn to the southeast, capping highs at the beaches in the low to mid 80s, and perhaps even falling back below 80 across Cape Ann.
So what about a rain chance? I can't rule out a couple of isolated storms from popping up with the high heat and humidity, but those isolated storms will tend to be NW of Boston.
Sunday will feel a bit more tolerable thanks to a stronger breeze, but all and all, it's still a very muggy day.
I know a lot of you need some help with watering the lawn, and I think Mother Nature provides us with help Sunday night and Monday morning as a cold front slides in. The threat of severe storms seems to be low, thanks to the timing of the front (cool part of the day), but the atmosphere is loading with moisture so some big rain-makers could certainly come through!
Lower humidity arrives Monday afternoon and Tuesday.
