As we edge our way closer to the weekend, our chances for showers and storms will increase.  An upper level low is meandering near the Great Lakes, which will place us within the area of PVA. Unsettled weather will stick around through the first half of the weekend.

Today will be hot and humid as highs will be flirting with 90F interior…upper 70s to lower 80s @ the coast.  A cold front/stationary front is making very slow eastward progress. This afternoon, there will be the threat for some strong storms across Western and Northern New England. There will be a slight chance that a few of these storms sneak into our far north and west zones.

Friday will include more cloud cover and also the increasing risk of showers and storms. The chance of rain will still be greatest for neighborhoods north and west of Boston, but there will be a chance for Eastern Massachusetts later in the day.  Cape Cod and the Islands will have brighter skies tomorrow.  High temps will be in the middle 80s interior, while the coast will have highs in the middle 70s to near 80F.

This August weekend will start off in a soggy fashion.  Saturday will be mostly cloudy to overcast with showers/storms/downpours throughout the day. Highs will be in the lower 80s inland to cooler temps along the coast as winds shift from onshore to south throughout the day. Sunday’s forecast involves details.  Clouds and a few lingering showers can be expected for Cape Cod/Islands early in the day. Then, midday should be partly cloudy to mostly sunny. There will be a slight chance of a few afternoon showers driven by daytime heat, especially north and west, as an upper level trough moves through the region.  High temps will be in the middle to upper 80s…slightly cooler with a southwest/onshore wind for Cape Cod/Islands.

One Alarm Clock Away…
