September 14th, 2012. That's the last time Boston had a high temp of 80 (81 that day)--nearly 8 months ago. That streak should end today as yesterday's much advertised warm front did its thing, leaving us with a nice warm bubble of air today. I think metro Boston reaches the low 80s under partly to mostly sunny skies. One reason for the warmth is it's leftover super heat from the Midwest and also a fiesty west wind 10-20mph keeping that chilly ocean air at bay. All in all, a great late spring/early summer day.
Tomorrow won't be as warm as a cool front slips through New England very early in the day. This will prevent us from reaching the 80s but i think inland areas will reach the low 70s. Along the coast, a sea breeze returns during the afternoon hours keep metro Boston (along with north/south shore) in the upper 60s. Sunny skies yet again.
As we head for the weekend, high pressure is in control--mostly. I do think there will be a fair amount of clouds each afternoon and the high pressure system will be centered up in the Gulf of Maine and that means temps will be in the 60s for afternoon highs----low 60s along the coast and mid to upper 60s well inland. Some rather spiffy weather for this time of year.
