Beyond The Forecast
Hurricane Arthur is coming this way and will likely pass 50 miles or so east of Nantucket Friday night.
We are now cautiously optimistic that most of the festivities should go off without a hitch (or a storm).
While all eyes are on Hurricane Arthur right now…we need to monitor the thunderstorm situation this afternoon and most importantly this evening with Boston Pops Concert and fireworks at the Hatch Shell. Right now the air is primed for storm development…very warm and humid…and scattered storms are likely this afternoon.

The latest data almost assures us of a washout in most of eastern New England Friday afternoon and night.
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.
Tropical Storm Arthur is forming off the coast of Florida and, as luck would have it, will likely be making its closest pass by southern New England on Friday night, perhaps as a hurricane.
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.
As the heat and humidity continue to build here in New England this week the tropics may be heating up too. A cluster of thunderstorms is likely to get its act together and form into the first tropical system of the season off of the Southeastern United States.
It is another spectacular weekend in New England. The humidity is low but the air is not bone dry like last weekend. Nevertheless, it is still quite comfortable despite the gradual rise in temperatures by 2-3 degrees in each succeeding day
