Well we are sailing into the weekend and the weather couldn’t be better…not too hot, not too cold, low humidity, lots of sunshine and no rain! Seriously, this might be the best weekend of the Summer and speaking of the Summer, it begins tomorrow morning at 6:51. Temperatures over the weekend will mostly be in the 70s, a few spots may nudge 80 and that would occur away from the coast and any sea breeze.
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.
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.
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.
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.
After a glorious weekend with back to back 80+ degree days, the weather is going to become somewhat unsettled as very muggy air flows into New England over the next 24 hours.
Your lawns and gardens will love today…your outdoor plans will not. An area of low pressure is in the process of developing a stronger center in our coastal waters.
April is now gone and left a sour taste in our mouths but May has arrived and with the new month comes a new weather pattern…one that’s a little sweeter.
Wasn’t that fun! If you were up early you witnessed a wild scene this morning…heavy rain flipped to heavy sleet and then nearly white-out conditions as a dynamic system barreled through the State. Logan Airport officially measured 0.3″. While snow in April is rare, it’s not unheard of, in fact today’s snow wasn’t even the record snowfall for the day…Logan picked 1.0″ back in 1992.
Todd Gutner says the harsh winter may not have been as damaging to gardens as first thought.
