Blue H Dominates
Posted by Chris Lambert
In the world of weather, blue H's represent high pressure and nice weather, and the red L's represent low pressure and stormy weather. For us, it's the big, blue H that rules the skies of New England over much of the upcoming 7+ days.
Clear skies and low humidity are still in place tonight, and that means another cool night for the suburbs. Temps fall back into the upper 40s and lower 50s there, and hold close to 60 degrees in the city.
More of the same for tomorrow, and we'll take that for sure as highs near 80 with sunshine and low humidity.
So how about the weekend? Good overall, with a fantastic Saturday and a pretty good Sunday. Despite an area of high pressure over New England, it is a touch farther northeast over the weekend. That'll allow a wave of low pressure, along a front, to move just to our south on Sunday. There's a slight risk of a Cape shower Sunday morning, but it looks like the bulk of the rain stays south, although more clouds could be in the mix. We'll call it clouds, breaks of sun and mid 70s there for the 2nd half of the weekend there. The rest of us near or just surpass 80 both Saturday and Sunday with more sun than clouds, although a sea breeze at the beach could knock temps back into the 70s at the beach.
Next week, we'll watch the influence of the blue H to our northeast get replaced by the influence of a blue H over the Ohio Valley. That'll send in warmth and higher humidity as we remain dry. The last time we hit 90 degrees was on July 20th, and it looks like we can do it again by Wednesday or Thursday.
