Latest Boston Barry Burbank
Yesterday was the hottest and muggiest day of the summer in much of the Boston area and it happened after Labor Day when teachers and students are in school! Whew! The temperature reached 93 degrees at 12:57 pm in Boston!
It became very sticky yesterday and that oppressive to high humidity will be locked in here through tomorrow. With a weakening frontal boundary across southern New England today, it could provide a boundary or focus axis for a few more spotty showers and storms this afternoon.
We are not done with the heat this summer. Despite the conclusion of meteorological summer this Sunday, August 31, there is a shot that the temperature could make a run for 90 degrees again.
In the short-term, each succeeding day through this Wednesday will be warmer. Expect highs at or slightly over 80 today, middle 80s tomorrow, upper 80s on Tuesday and that 90 on Wednesday.
Over the weekend, the sky will feature varying amounts of clouds and sunshine. Sunshine should be prevalent much of the time tomorrow and breaking out during Sunday after morning showers depart.
