Not Bad Overall
Posted by Chris Lambert
A few downpours ran over the Cape and Islands early this morning, and we'll continue to contend with a few showers along the 95 corridor, east, to the coast early, but overall, this Sunday turns out to be ok. By 10AM, many showers shift offshore, allowing for partial sunshine to return and a dry afternoon in eastern Mass. Inland, we're dry this morning, but along 495, points west, we'll catch a passing shower or thunderstorm this afternoon.
Early morning tee time? You may catch a passing shower or two this morning near the coast, but most of the round turns out dry, especially as you make the turn toward the back 9. Watch for the mosquitos, if you're like me and spend lots of time in the woods, they love mornings like this.
Heading to the beach? Well, you probably don't have to rush out the door first thing this morning. It'll take a bit to break the clouds and completely get rid of a few drops, but by the 10AM-Noon stretch, we should start to see improvements at the coast with partial sunshine breaking out for the afternoon. That'll make a decent beach day this afternoon with temps in the upper 70s, muggy conditions and water temps still on the warmer side.
More showers and storms rumble through this evening, and could redevelop as early as day's end across the Cape as more tropical moisture rides in. The highest rain threat this evening is again across SE Mass.
More scattered showers and storms slide through Monday, but we'll also catch our dry hours too between batches of precip. We won't catch a break in the high humidity though until Monday night. That's when the front that causes those showers and storms, clears the coast, delivering fantastic weather for Tuesday and Wednesday.
Side note: Long term pattern (out to 15 days) looks relatively cool across the Northeast and Great Lakes. Although you can catch an isolated hot day in an overall cooler pattern, 90 degrees looks hard to come by even into the first couple weeks of August. Lot of 70s and 80s look to be in the cards ahead.
