Sunshine Yields to Storms
Posted by Chris Lambert
What a fantastic stretch of weather we've had over the last few days with the sunshine and low humidity. We'll have another winner today as this morning starts off comfortably cool with lots of sunshine. More clouds mix in midday, into the afternoon, but all and all, we'll get enough sunshine through those clouds to warm us back up into the mid 70s at the coast to the lower 80s inland.
Humidity goes up tonight, and it won't be as cool with temps overnight in the 60s. Clouds thicken and a few showers are possible after midnight.
Showers and storms are scattered about tomorrow, with the highest concentration of storms north and west of Boston. Any thunderstorm will be capable of producing heavy rain as the atmosphere loads up on moisture. It'll be a warm and muggy day, with any breaks of sun sending temps into the lower 80s.
Showers and storms are widespread on Friday with downpours likely, perhaps causing localized flooding on the roads and poor drainage areas. Any breaks of sun can help destabilize the atmosphere and allow for strong storms to form, so we'll watch for that as well.
The good news? We're back to dry weather and low humidity for the weekend as any early shower and clouds Saturday head out to sea by mid-late morning.
So how about the long range pattern? Through at least the next 10 days, I don't see a return of 90 degree weather. Next week looks comfortable overall with a lot more dry times than wet with temps running in the 70s and lower 80s. Enjoy!
