Thunderous Start to Workweek
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Heat and a bit of humidity fed a strong - and sometimes severe - line of thunderstorms today. By the time the dinner hour rolled around (6pm-ish), the storms had consolidated into a line. Everyone got a drink of water and a big drop in temperatures - some falling nearly 20 degrees in minutes!
That line progresses southbound through the evening and fades as it nears the Canal. Still, expect some light rain all the way out to the Cape. The storms die, but the rain is another story.
Tuesday is a little bit cloudier, a little bit cooler, and a bit tamer than today. A few storms could fire once again in the afternoon as the cool front will still be in our neighborhood, but I don't expect them to get out of hand because of the limited sun. (Sun = heat = fuel for storms.)
Thereafter, we're on cruise control for the remainder of the week. We'll dodge a storm system on Wednesday as cooler air shuffles in, and we'll stay dry and refreshing through the end of the week.
Warming trend may be in store by the time the weekend rolls around. Enjoy these fine summer days ahead!
