More Clouds Today, Heat On Deck
Posted by Chris Lambert
While it won't be picture perfect like the last several days, much of this Sunday still features dry weather other than a few sprinkles/light showers over far SE Mass.
We start this Sunday off with filtered sunshine and as moisture continues to plume in from the south and southwest, that sunshine fades behind clouds at times late this morning and this afternoon. The atmosphere overall is filled with dry air, so despite a lot more clouds around, rainfall is limited. A few sprinkles and light showers arrive from Plymouth to Taunton to Seekonk, points south this afternoon, but with rainfall totals under a tenth of an inch of rain, don't expect any soaking downpours. A few drops here and there are more of a nuisance on the golf course or for the BBQ, but a washout it is not.
Clouds and sprinkles leave us tonight, and the trend next week is up in the temperatures department.
We'll reach the mid 80s tomorrow, upper 80s Tuesday and lower 90s Wednesday and Thursday. Despite the heat returning, humidity values won't be as oppressive as they were in July. Dew points generally run in the 60-65 range, which is muggy, but compared to the 70-75 we had in July, it's not as stifling.
The heat breaks with a few scattered storms Thursday evening/Thursday night. Back to nice weather by next Friday, into the weekend.
