Summer Returns For Columbus Day Weekend

Temps are starting off crisp and cool early this AM, but will quickly be on the rise today. At 9:30 AM we have already come close to where our highs were Friday…and we have quite a bit more daylight to go! By late morning, widespread 60’s…by afternoon, highs will be in the 70’s and lwr 80’s.

Humid Stretch Showing Signs Of Ending

High pressure is close enough to provide enough subsidence for some increasing PM sunshine across the north with skies becoming partly sunny. This stable sinking air should allow for some brightening to the skies this afternoon in the south as well…with more clouds south of the Pike closer to the front.

Winds are extremely light today, but expect them to shift onshore this afternoon for a feeble onshore wind. This will keep it slightly cooler at the beaches in the mid 70’s with many inland areas in the upper 70’s and Lwr 80’s, especially if we break into any period of sunshine…which I am expecting to develop this afternoon.

Cloudy Humid Weekend…Unsettled Pattern Holds

The Rain has pushed off shore, but plenty of clouds remain today as SW winds aloft continue to stee warm humid airmass into the northeast. High pressure will be building towards New England with a stalling front off our coast this afternoon. This should give way to some increasing sun or at least a thing to the overcast this afternoon. Breaks are already visible on the satellite. Overall, a decent Saturday… With temps already in the 70’s, by afternoon it will feel down right summer like with highs in the Lwr 80’s and dewpoints near 70. Ugh.

Cool Weekend…Mild Midweek

Plenty of sunshine out there today with high thin cirrus clouds drifting above our heads. A trough to our west will be pushing into the region this afternoon bringing a few thicker middle level clouds along with it. High pressure at the surface will keep us dry and cool with highs in the mid 60’s for most. Winds will be light, so a PM seabreeze will keep temps mainly in the lower 60’s at the beaches.

Autumnal Preview For Last Weekend Of Summer

Winds are diminishing today as high pressure slides towards us, but the cooler air will continue to push into New England from Canada helping to keep highs around 60-65 degrees today with sun-filled skies. It should be in the mid 60’s along the south coast, while most of us will remain in the Lwr 60’s close to 10 degrees below normal for this time of year

Fine Weather On This Day of Remembrance

´╗┐High pressure parked over Maine this morning providing clear and calm conditions to the region. Patchy morning fog is already beginning to lift. Light onshore winds from the SE will keep it cooler at the coast today in the 60’s while most inland spots will climb to 70-75 degrees this afternoon…warmer in the west.

Timing the Showers Arrival and Impact Sunday

Clouds will continue to gradually increase and thicken through the weekend. While the coast should remain dry tomorrow, the risk inland for showers increases, especially once you get west of Worcester. The clouds and cool SE winds will keep temps in the 70’s near 80. The warm spot will be NH and ME in the Lwr 80’s. Only in the upper 60’s and Lwr 70’s where it will be raining out west.

Weekend Weather This & Thats

High Pressure shifts off shore Saturday with light, but warmer winds. Highs in the mid-80’s inland, 70’s and Lwr 80’s at the beaches with sunshine and high clouds. Dewpoints in 50’s so still comfortable

Extensive Heat & Humidity In Upcoming Heat Wave

With high pressure overhead, drier air, light winds and clear skies…we are in store for a gorgeous summer night with temps dropping down to 60-65 in Eastern MA…with lows in the 50’s in western valleys. More sunshine for Wednesday with temps once again climbing towards 90 with moderate humidity.

Looking for a Better Week of Summer Weather

Morning Low clouds are thinning and breaking for some increasing midday and afternoon sunshine. Low clouds linger a bit longer at the coast…especially on the Cape. West winds along with increasing hazy sun will give a warm muggy to feel to the air this afternoon with highs climbing into the 70’s and Lwr 80’s. Light winds will mean a seabreeze at the coast
