Tough To Beat
Posted by Chris Lambert
The weather doesn't get much better than this for mid September, and I'm sure many of you will get out and take advantage of it. Sure, it's a cool start, but with a more stable atmosphere in place, clouds won't bubble up today to block the sun like the did yesterday. That means apples orchards and golf courses will be bright through the afternoon, 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 run in the mid to 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 lower to 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, the 2nd hurricane this season, turns in the western Gulf of Mexico. It's expected to continue a northwesterly drift the next day or so, before sliding west, closing in near Tampico, Mexico as a category 2 hurricane. Although coastal flooding and wind damage is a concern where the eye makes landfall, the more widespread issue will be heavy rain. Ingrid will weaken over land, but for a few days, torrential, tropical rains will plague parts of Mexico, producing flash flooding.
