Great 2nd Half
Posted by Chris Lambert
Some midday clouds were around to blotch out the sunshine for many, but overall, it was a decent day with dry conditions and low humidity to start the weekend. Those instability clouds we have in the day fade fast near sunset, allowing for clear skies and a cool overnight as the numbers fall into the 40s in the suburbs and stay in the 50s in the city.
Clear skies tonight also sets the stage for lots of sunshine and a great 2nd half of the weekend tomorrow. With a more stable atmosphere in place, clouds won't bubble up midday to block the sun. Apples orchards and golf courses will be bright, so don't forget the sunscreen! With more sunshine and a wind out of the west to southwest, it's also warmer with highs in the lower to middle 70s. Enjoy! Temps are still in the upper 60s at Fenway for Sunday Night Baseball as the Sox look to sweeps the Yanks.
A cold front comes in Monday, providing a few scattered, mainly light showers as highs hold in the upper 60s. Behind that front, it's a chilly one Tuesday with morning lows in the upper 30s in most suburbs and highs only in the mid 60s.
We warm a bit to end the week, but we'll also bring in the chance of more showers starting Friday afternoon.
In the tropics, Ingrid has become the 2nd hurricane this season as she turns in the western Gulf of Mexico. It's expected to continue a northerly drift the next 1-2 days before sliding west into Tampico, Mexico. Widespread heavy rain certainly could be an issue for eastern Mexico with a threat for flooding a concern.
