But we’ll take it! Our average high temperatures should be running in the low 60s now…and we’ll be right around or over that both today and tomorrow.  With a southwest wind today, expect highs in the mid to upper 60s, except for the outer Cape where the ocean influence keeps us a tad cooler.  In terms of any wet weather today, an upper level disturbance will spark a few pop up showers and even a thunderstorm or two this afternoon.  Not everyone will see them though…

The highest chance of showers and storms (70%+) is along the Rt 2 corridor points north and west. Along and outside of 495 it’s about a 50% chance of a shower/storm, with a 20-30% chance in and around Boston/Metrowest.  In southeast MA the risk diminishes even more…to only about 10% in northern Bristol and Plymouth Counties.  Tonight, we all get into a threat for showers and storms as a strong piece of energy rotates overhead.  Don’t be surprised if you wake up to rumbles of thunder, especially after midnight.

Tomorrow, a pool of cold air aloft will move into the region.  With “warm” surface temperatures, this creates a lot of instability in the atmosphere…resulting in scattered thunderstorms.  While I’m not anticipating any severe storms, a few cells may contain small hail and brief gusty wind as they push through.

Keep an eye to the sky and remember to seek shelter indoors should a storm head your way. And as always, if it’s safe to do so, snap a pic and share it with us!  You can find me on facebook and twitter.

Have a great one!
