Some may be stuck in the clouds for much of the day. On the Cape there is sunshine! A gorgeous morning. I do expect a gradual thinning and lifting to the clouds for partial sun to emerge by the late morning into the early afternoon. I think we are looking at a decent beach day for sky conditions, once the clouds burn off, but wind and waves may be another issue. Any emerging sun will help to fuel the development of afternoon storms.
Morning showers are shifting to the coast this morning. Showers are extending from the North Shore into CT along a stalling front which has pushed just south of Boston and will become hung up across SE MA during the afternoon. Severe weather is not likely in this unseasonably cool airmass, with cloudy damp conditions & light variable winds. Morning showers will begin to wind down during the late morning into the midday with still plenty of cloud through the lunch hour.
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.
The closer to the coast you are, the drier you will be thanks to high pressure off shore. Despite a little light rain early, a good portion of the day should remain dry with temps in the mid 70′s. Hard to completely rule out showers completely today for eastern sections…as a few showers could break off the main batch out west from time to time. Either way, a cloudy, humid and tolerable Sunday if you have to be outdoors in eastern MA.
