Quick Bounce To Perfection
Posted by Chris Lambert
Did you feel that chill this morning? It certainly didn't feel like summer around sunrise as the Vineyard hit 42 degrees while it was 44 in Taunton, and 46 in Norwood, Orange and Falmouth. No worries though, it's a fast recovery as temperatures head into the upper 70s and lower 80s this afternoon thanks to the dry air mass in place and a lot of sunshine.
Sea breezes do kick in at the coast, so temps max out in the upper 70s at the beach, then fall back into the lower 70s mid to late afternoon as those onshore breezes win out.
Thin clouds that mix in this afternoon become thicker overnight tonight as a complex of showers and thunderstorm near New England by daybreak tomorrow. While I don't expect an all day washout on Monday, I don expect some of those showers and storms to roll in here, providing needed water on some lawns and gardens. I say some, because the rain will be scattered, about 40% of us getting wet.
Tuesday and Wednesday feature higher humidity, temps in the lower 80s and a few more showers and storms. The lower threat of rain is Tuesday with the higher chance of storms Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday evening.
Behind the Wednesday PM front that brings in storms, we'll dry out for the end of the week.
So what about Labor Day Weekend? I know, I know, it's far out, but the early indications are we start dry and cool Saturday (mid to upper 70s), reach the 80s on Sunday, and well into the 80s on Monday (maybe 90 if a front near New England stays well north of us). We'll keep you updated, but for now, enjoy this perfect Sunday afternoon.
