The Farmers’ Almanac is predicting that Old Man Winter is waking up this year and will return with a lot of snow.
We just have to make it through today…which will still be quite warm and tropical. The heaviest rain of the early morning has shifted off the coast with still a few lingering heavy downpours tracking from Worcester county into southern New Hampshire. Clouds continue to steam up the coast with the humid SW flow aloft…but the day will become progressively better by afternoon.
it’s a muggy morning across the region with abundant cloud cover with breaks of hazy sunshine. We can expect a warm humid Saturday with mostly dry conditions for most in the morning. By the afternoon, the atmosphere will begin to pop again with scattered showers and thunderstorms.
One more day in the heat and humidity before we get a welcome break in the summer weather and a return to a more seasonal and comfortable airmass. A warm front has pushed off the coast this morning with winds shifting to the SW. Hazy sunshine will help to spike temps into the 80′s near 90 by midday.
Temps will be warming up this afternoon inland climbing into the mid 80′s for most areas, even nearing 90 in western New England. Weak high pressure will make for wall to wall sunshine through the day with light NW winds. A sea breeze will likely develop at the coast this afternoon to cool temps from the lwr 80′s back into the 70′s for the second half of the day.
Batches of showers will continue to be directed up into eastern MA for the rest of the day. With cool onshore SE winds…expect highs to remain in the lwr 60′s with a bit warmer temps inland in the mid 60′s where it will be drier this afternoon in the mid 60′s nearing 70 in spots.
With high pressure sitting over us today, temps will climb into the 70′s and lwr 80′s inland. Light east winds will keep temps in the 60′s at the immediate beaches. The sea breeze will not penetrate more than a mile or two inland…so once away from the water…expect a warmer day.
That dry air will begin to erode some of the low cloud cover this afternoon…with breaks of sun forming inland. The front will stall as it approaches SE MA…so clouds will remain pretty locked in at the coast for much of the day. With light onshore winds….expect temps to remain in the 50′s with Lwr-mid 60′s farther inland away from the cooler water temps.
Temps are quickly responding to sunshine as highs will climb into the mid-uppr 50′s this afternoon with lighter WNW winds with gusts to 20mph.
What a day this is going to be. After a week of incredible weather, this one could end up being on of the best. Sunshine with some increasing high clouds in the afternoon with southerly winds gusting to 20+ in the afternoon. Highs will be running well above normal again with highs climbing to near 80 degrees in SNH, the Merrimack Valley and Northern Worcester county. The rest of us will see highs in the mid-upper 70′s with a slight sea breeze developing right at the coast this afternoon which will keep it cooler on the south shore beaches and the Cape in the 60′s. Fantastic Friday! Is there anything better?
