While towns south of the Mass Pike got a solid soaking late last night and this morning it was another missed opportunity for communities north of the Mass Pike. In fact, since August 9th Boston has only measured a paltry .02″….01″ yesterday and .01″ today. With that said, today’s rain chances are rapidly diminishing as a weak low pressure center swirls away to our south the sun is burning through the clouds behind it and temps are about to jump up into the 80s for most. Dewpoints are running very high…65-70…and with the added sunshine, a storm is possible this afternoon especially in Western New England.
These next couple of days not much will change…Wednesday and Thursday will start out with low clouds and fog that burn off to sunshine. Both days will be muggy and there is a storm chance but without much of a trigger, most of the action will likely be over the hills or mountains of New England or along any seabreeze fronts that form.
Heading into the weekend, the atmosphere will be warming up. With the mid-levels heating up that presents a very stable situation despite surface warmth and humidity, therefore the storm chance will stay very small both Saturday and Sunday. The chances will be elevated as heights begin to fall on Monday with an approaching cold front and by the end of the day we may see a solid line of storms approaching from the West.
