August Is Nearing
There are just a couple of days remaining in the month of July, and it’s going to be a bright and seasonable end to the month.
One thing to note is that this week will be mainly dry.
High pressure will keep us dry for the next 2 days along with slightly warmer temperatures each day. The coast will be cooler in the lower to middle 70s. It will be a sunshiny day today with more late-day clouds on Tuesday as a surface low passes just east of Nantucket. As it does so, there will be a slim chance of a sprinkle or shower Tuesday night across southeastern Massachusetts.
Wednesday, the first day of August, will be warmer in the lower 80s and also more humid. There will be a one-in-three chance of scattered afternoon storms, mainly focused on areas north and west of Boston.
Thursday will include sunshine, diurnal clouds, and a few afternoon storms developing with cool air aloft/stalled eroding frontal boundary. The temperatures will be slightly warmer in the lower to middle 80s and humidity will even higher with dew points hanging near 70.
Friday will be sunny with diurnally-driven clouds and a chance of afternoon storms once again. Highs will be in the middle to upper 80s.
The first weekend of August will be a hot and humid one with highs near 90.
There will be a slim chance of a late-day storm both days, mainly outside of the 495 corridor. That being said, it looks like a great beach weekend overall!
This week’s night sky will be brightly lit by the Full ‘Sturgeon’ Moon this Wednesday, August 1.
