Lowering The Humidity
Posted by Chris Lambert
You may need to throw some water on the lawn or in the garden since we won't see much rain around here the next several days. I'm sure for most, that works out just fine through the weekend as we have more nice weather in store.
Today is transition day as northwest winds turn northeast, allowing for a cooler afternoon, especially at the coast where temps stay in the mid to upper 70s. Inland temps reach the lower 80s, however, with that northerly component to the wind, the humidity does turn lower. All and all, it's a pretty good day with just enough instability to trigger a spot brief shower or sprinkle amid many dry hours.
High pressure to our west continues to drive in cooler and less humid air into southern New England through the first half of the weekend, allowing for a September-like Saturday. Highs hold in the upper 70s inland, and only in the low to mid 70s at the coast thanks to a north to northeast wind. That wind will be active across SE Mass, so it may feel a bit cool at the beach across the Cape and Islands.
That high settles over us on Sunday, allowing for a beauty of a day with highs near 80, blue skies and light sea breezes kicking in. Sunday will be a bit warmer of the two days down the Cape, upper 70s then with a light breeze.
Next chance Mother Nature waters the lawn won't show up until Tuesday.
Enjoy the weekend!
