It’s the last day of August, and meteorologically-speaking, it’s the last day of Summer.

Today will be gorgeous as we reach the lower 90s (cooler S.Coast/Cape/Islands)!

It doesn’t look like we will be reaching the record highs in Boston of 97 in 1953 and Worcester 93 in 1953.

There will be a stiff southwest wind again today.  A moisture-starved cold front wil produce a few showers and storms for northern New England this evening which may also produce a spot shower in our area tonight.  However, it’s a *very* slight chance.

Labor Day weekend is looking fantastic!

Saturday will be mostly sunny with winds from the north-northeast due to the passage of that cold front. So, the high temperatures will be more seasonable near 80 inland, 70s at the coast.

Then, a northeast wind on Sunday will keep beaches in the 70-75 range while inland will be slightly warmer in the upper 70s.

Some models are showing a 500H vort coming through Sunday afternoon. This may have enough energy to supply us with diurnal clouds and a stray shower.  Of course, this will be a very slight chance. Plan on a dry weekend! :)

Labor Day will be another dry day with mostly sunny skies with highs near 80, 70s at the coast.

It still looks like we will be dodging raindrops from a frontal boundary and leftover moisture from ‘Isaac’ starting on Tuesday.

Beach and boating may be your outdoor activities of choice this holiday weekend so check out this link for the latest forecast.

A small craft advisory will be in effect this afternoon.

*Make sure to check out the Full ‘Blue’ Moon tonight.

Have a fantastic Holiday weekend!

Happy FRRRiday! :)
