It's a great looking day ahead of us as any areas of fog burn off for sunshine and temperatures warm back into the lower to middle 80s. Beach temps run a couple degrees either side of 80 with winds turning more onshore mid to late afternoon. Humidity values come up a bit, but still modest compared to what we've seen so far this summer. Dew points run back into the lower 60s.
Any of you Swifties heading out to Gillette this evening? No dodging rain drops tonight with late afternoon temps in the low 80s and early evening temps in the mid 70s.
Actually, today is one of the better days across all of New England that we've had this summer. So many times this summer, flooding downpours have moved across northern New England when we've been dry here, or, when's it's been pleasant north, it's been a battle with rain and clouds down in southern New England. That's not the case today as 70s and 80s and sunshine are widespread across the 6 state region.
Unfortunately, that won't last through Sunday as we're actually tracking two areas of unsettled weather for the second half of the weekend. One, a wave of low pressure to our south that'll likely bring scattered showers in tomorrow morning with the highest threat for that AM rain along the I-95 corridor, point's south and east. Area number two is an approaching front off to our west that'll pop a few showers and thunderstorms out ahead of it. The best chance for those afternoon storms will be outside 495. In the afternoon, we may start catching some dry hours where we had the morning showers farther east.
Kind of a complicated forecast Sunday, but bottom line, I'd keep the umbrella handy, but don't expect an all day washout. I know it is a Sunday in the summer, so I'm sure there are plenty of outdoor activities planned. Try our 7Weather app to track rain on the radar yourself while you are out. Also, I'll do my best to keep you updated on the radar trends on twitter Sunday as well through @clamberton7.
Have a good weekend!
