Warming Up and Unsettled
Posted by Chris Lambert
Well, it certainly was a great weekend weather-wise until this afternoon when the temps dropped and light showers moved in from west to east. Despite the cool down, the theme for this upcoming week is warmer with higher humidity. It'll also be unsettled at times.
The cold shower activity we see the evening is along and out ahead of a warm front. Obviously, we're on the cooler side of things still. I do expect these showers to be on and off tonight, with more on than off this evening. Patchy fog develops as well.
Tomorrow, that warm front moves just to our north, and that means a south to west wind warms us up. How's 75-80 sound? The exception will be the 60s across Buzzards Bay and the Cape and Islands. Much of the time is dry, however, we have enough instability for pop up scattered showers and thunderstorms. While I don't expect a high threat of severe weather, there will be quite a bit of moisture in the air that will allow for localized downpours.
Tuesday, we find ourselves back on the cooler side of things with highs in the 60s, an onshore wind and a low chance of rain.
Wednesday and Thursday... back to warm and humid with highs well into the 70s, if not in the lower 80s. Wednesday chance of storms is early with a warm front, while Thursday's chance of storms in late in the afternoon/evening. Some of thunderstorms storms could be strong.
Showers and storms taper on Friday and the weekend right now looks good... cool, but also dry.
