It may be the unofficial end of Summer, but astronomically-speaking, it’s still Summer until  Saturday, September 22 @ 10:49am.

It’s going to be a beautiful Labor Day. Backyard BBQs will be fantastic with highs temperatures reaching the upper 70s to near 80F inland…70-75F @ the coast. High pressure will begin to lose its grip tonight as clouds start to fill-in.

Showers will spread eastward on Tuesday afternoon although a few showers may slip in earlier for areas outside of 495, especially south and west.  Highs will be in the middle 70s.

There will be tropical-like downpours on Tuesday night and Wednesday as remnants of Isaac as well as a cold front affect Southern New England.  Rainfall amounts will be between .75″-1.5″ for our viewing area, while Western and Northern New England will receive several inches of rain (~2-5″) over that 36-48 hours period. High temps on Wednesday will be near 80F.

Thursday will be a mainly dry day, but the newest NAM is showing a front hanging tough near Southeastern Massachusetts which may trigger an afternoon storm.  Otherwise, partly cloudy skies can be expected with highs in the lower to middle 80s…cooler coast.

Friday will be a partly cloudy day with highs reaching the middle 80s.

Tropical Update: T.S. Leslie is not forecast to make landfall, but it may come close enough this weekend to increase surf and create dangerous rip currents.  We will watch ‘her’ track closely.

Enjoy your day off!
