Full moons in the summer are extra special since we can enjoy them outside in comfortably warm air. So we are indeed lucky to have clear nights with little haze this weekend.
It looks like the gloomy weather will continue today as another weak wave of low pressure transits up the coast. It will produce some more light showers and sprinkles but a spell of moderate to heavy rain is not anticipated at this time.
Additional rounds of showers and boomers will soak various locations today. Some of the heaviest rain should materialize during portions of the commute this morning with scattered activity lingering into the afternoon as a rather potent low pressure system migrates from NY into New England.
July 20-25, on average, is the hottest stretch of the year in New England so today will be another atypical July day with highs only slightly over 70 at the beaches to the upper 70s northwest of Boston.
The atmosphere is primed to deliver spells of showers and storms now into Wednesday. They can occur at anytime not just the afternoon hours. Amidst this muggy air, plan on drenching downpours in places causing street and urban flooding especially in poor drainage areas.
I love full moon nights especially in the summer when you can enjoy them outdoors in the warmer weather. How about you? Last night’s Full Thunder Moon was spectacular because the sky was clear with no haze and the moon was 14% bigger and 30% brighter than usual.
Arthur has moved on but he certainly contributed to an active week here in New England.
Now it’s July and sticky and we’re tracking a tropical storm which is rather rare for this early in the season in this area.
While the temperature peaked at 90 in several communities north and west of Boston yesterday, the city came up short by 1 degree again. I am quite confident that Boston will have its first 90 degrees of the season today.
