Beyond The Forecast
The weekend weather, for the most part, is shaping up to be wonderful across the region. Add to that the start of summer tomorrow and it should put a smile on many faces for sure.
A cold front slipped through earlier this morning pushing the heat and humidity out of here for the foreseeable future. I use the word heat loosely here because we didn’t even touch 90…87 was the best we could do.
With a very warm airmass in place, the potential still exists for Boston to get its first 90 degrees of the season today but it is a close call.
So we just had a couple of stunning days…sunny, warm yet very low humidity. That’s all about to change as heat and humidity will build in over the next couple of days. We have yet to touch 90 degrees here in Boston this year and the last time we did was last September. The average date for the first 90 degree day is June 8th…so we aren’t too far off.
I hope your Father’s Day was a great one. Mine was outstanding. The weather certainly cooperated by delivering perfection in my opinion. The combo of sunshine, low humidity and temperatures near 80 made everybody happy to be outside enjoying a variety of activities.
It is a delightful day for all of the Dads and everyone else today. The air is very dry with dewpoints in the 40s and the temperatures will max out in the upper 70s to near 80 in most locations.
The weekend is off and running but it’s pretty slow out of the gate. A warm front to our south produced inundating rain with many towns picking up an inch if not more. The soaking downpours have moved out for now but it’s still rather miserable out with lingering mist, drizzle and dense fog. Now we look ahead to Father’s Day weekend and the hope is for some sunshine and we’ll get it…just not easily.

“Zonal” or “Progressive” are not two words that are likely to be matched up with recent weather across the U.S.
Thunderstorm chances will be running fairly high this afternoon and we will have to keep an eye on the radar…storms that form will have heavy rain, lightning, gusty wind and possible hail.
