When Thunder Roars, Go IndoorsOur focus turns to the heat, humidity and threat for thunderstorms the next several days.
Summer Saves The Best For LastPeriodic light showers will be shifting to SE MA and the Cape for the Afternoon where it will remain a bit damp. It is a dry day in Boston points, N & W. Clearing skies with drier air will try to push to the coast but it will not be easy. Sunshine in western New England should arrive near Worcester by 2 or 3 PM. It will take the entire day for the clearing line t reach the coast unfortunately. Winds are lighter today out of the NNE. With clouds and cool wind off the water...60's and Lwr 70's at the beaches, Lwr-mid 70's inland where we will see some increasing afternoon sunshine.
Almost There...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.
Tropical Humidity Triggers Scattered Showers/Storms This Weekendit'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.
Oppressively Humid Weekend...Where Is The Relief?
Heat & Humidity Remain for Now...But Signs of ChangeWe are quickly warming this morning from the 70's into the 80's. Buy midday, some areas will be approaching 90. Sunshine in place this morning will fade this afternoon under thickening clouds in advance of a prefrontal trough which is triggering a few scattered showers/storms in western/central NY. The increasing clouds will help to slow the warming. Hazy sunshine should last at our eastern facing beaches into the early afternoon before turning mostly cloudy. Dewpoints have been rising into the mid 60's and will likely climb to near 70 before the day is through so a typical muggy summer day in July with highs in the upper 80's and lwr 90's.
July Heat Wave & The Northern LightsSkies will become partly sunny this afternoon with light to breezy west winds, highs will climb into the upper 80's and Lwr 90's in most areas. Clouds this morning at the beaches will give way to an afternoon haze. Where clouds linger longer, this will help to keep temps mostly in the 80's.
The Heat Is On Again!Temperatures will be quickly climbing into the 80's by midday and lwr 90's inland this afternoon. The hot spot today will be SNH and the Merrimack Valley where highs will be around 92-94 degrees this afternoon
Summer Heat and Humidity Takes A Break...Today will still be warm and a bit muggy to start. Sunshine with temps climbing into the upper 80's to near 90 in many areas by afternoon.
One More Day....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.
Amazing Weather Overall...But What About The 4th?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.
Summer Here To Stay...Quick Put On The Brakes!Dewpoints have climbed into the Lwr-mid 60's so there is a muggy feel along with the increasing heat. Temps will be close to yesterday's, but maybe a couple of degrees warmer climbing into the Lwr 90's in most areas. Along with the humidity, this is a day where you need to take moments during the day to stay cool...either by AC, shade, water, or ice cream!
