You can talk all you want about how great the weather is, but you have to be outside to really enjoy it. Tax free weekend? Shopping? Give me a break. Seeing is believing this weekend. This Sunday is for the water, sports, leisure, the lakes or mountains. It is a day to take pause and be thankful for the life you have. It is that good.

So no need to get intensive with this blog, we know the story by now. Sunshine 70’s and Lwr 80s today with light winds and low humidity and a light sea breeze for some immediate coastlines. High pressure crests over us today and tonight with clear skies and light winds. High clouds will increase after midnight which will be the prime view of the Perseid meteor showers

Monday will still be a mainly dry day with a light SW wind direction which will steer in a bit more humidity by tomorrow afternoon. A front is stalled well south of New England today, some of the clouds from this front could push into SNE Monday for partly sunny skies, brighter skies to the north. Highs on Monday will be in Lwr 80s with dewpoints in Lwr-mid 60’s by afternoon with a risk of an isolated shower.

A cold front approaches Tuesday with dewpoints in the 60’s near 70..definitel more humid. Scattered showers and a thunderstorm will be possible..in the N & W in the morning and shifting into SNE and the coast for the midday and afternoon. There will be the risk of a few downpours and an embedded thunderstorm. Some of the showers could be heavy for a time and could linger into Tuesday night. About .25-3/4″ will fall in this next batch of rain.

High pressure from Canada will follow in for Wed-Thurs-Friday with temps in the mid-upper 70’s nearing 80 degrees for the midweek with low humidity and comfortable air. An upper level trough will once again supply cooler than normal air into NE for the midweek, with temps moderating by the weekend back to near 80 or above. This trough will remain in place into the weekend, helping to keep temps near normal

Once thing we will have to watch is a building high in the western Atlantic pushing west again. This will buckle the jetstream and push the SW flow back up the east coast which could help to keep more clouds around with the risk of a few showers by next Saturday…It is really to far away to speculate. We will keep a look out for that. Until then plenty of nice weather to enjoy ahead!
