More Sun Than Showers
Posted by Chris Lambert
After soaking rains at times through the first half of the month, these are the days we patiently waited for as summer has now kicked in. The last few days have been fantastic, and we'll continue the nice weather overall through the weekend as temperatures continue to heat up.
Sunshine and clouds mix together today with highs heading for the low to mid 80s. Humidity levels are still in check, so it'll feel a lot like it did yesterday. I don't expect much rain over the weekend, but a passing shower/storm can't be ruled out (10% chance today). Best chance will be north and west of Boston late this afternoon and again late overnight. They'll be few and far between, so don't expect it to take up much of your time.
Hopefully we'll get a few clear spots in the sky tonight as we near the Supermoon. This months Full Strawberry Moon happens to be when the moon is also in it's closest point to Earth in it's orbit. Since it's closer, it appears bigger and brighter, thus the tag Supermoon.
Humidity does increase on Sunday, and so do the temps with highs in the mid to upper 80s. Not a high rain chance, but a few isolated storms will be out there in the afternoon (20% chance).
Heading north this weekend? It'll be warm in northern and central New England, however, there is a much higher chance of storms from the Lakes Region, north, compared to Southern New England. In Southern New England, the lowest chance for rain is the Cape/Islands. With a southwest wind, the Cape and Islands hold in the mid to upper 70s today and tomorrow.
The peak of the heat arrives Monday and Tuesday with temps near 90 and the slight risk of a pop-up storm in the afternoon.
