Yikes! That was a close one, but the Pats pulled it off and a win is a win. We certainly won out this weekend in the weather department as well as comfortable weather settled in and temps were just a smidge above seasonable levels over the past couple of days.
Temps WILL NOT be above seasonal levels tonight. As clear skies, light winds, and a low humidity Canadian air mass settles in, the mercury drops. In fact, you can already feel the change in the air late this afternoon as temperatures start to slide. By daybreak Monday, many of the suburbs are in the upper 30s and lower 40s. The city holds near 50. We'll recover to about 70 tomorrow afternoon with lots of sunshine.
We'll shake the cool weather off by mid-week as mid-summer heat and humidity build in. Highs surge past 90 on Wednesday with hazy sun and dew points well into the 60s. Bottom line, don't take that A/C unit out of the window quite yet!
Thunderstorms breaks the heat and humidity on Thursday, some of which could be strong, so we'll have to watch for that set-up when the time comes.
By Friday and Saturday, it's back to much cooler weather with highs by next Saturday not getting out of the 60s.
Hey, it's transition time here in New England and that means a lot of back and forth.
In the meantime, in the tropics, Tropical Depression #9 has formed just off the African coast. It's forecasted to become a hurricane on Wednesday, September 11th. It's no threat to the United States, however, if it fails to become a hurricane on, or before Wednesday, it'll mark the longest we've gone into a hurricane season, without a hurricane developing, since the satellite era begin in 1960.
