A Few Bumps In The RoadLight onshore winds will keep it cooler at the coast in the 70's, but where there is breaking sunshine and brighter skies, high temps will climb into the Lwr 80's this afternoon. A cold front to our west with more clouds will be pushing into New England late today with scattered showers or a thunderstorms...mainly reserved for western New England. Much of the day will be dry for outdoor events and this afternoon just may be alright...just warm and muggy!
Summer Returns For WeekendHighs will mostly be in the 60's and Lwr 70's inland at the most today. Not exactly the kind of Friday you want at the end of July. It will likely end up a bit warmer than yesterday. Winds will be shifting to the WNW as the low pulls away and into the Gulf of ME this afternoon, which should help the scattered light showers begin to taper off a bit.
Wave On A Stalled Front...Keeps It Wet And Cool At The Coast Clouds are socked in with a cool NE winds keeping temps in the 60's. The cold front which pushed through yesterday with all the humidity is now stalled off the coast. Showers are riding up the front and will be slowly lifting into SNE today.
It's Never Easy...Especially This Summer!Today a front is moving through which will finally put a beat down to the humidity for a time. Sunshine and west winds have allowed temps to spike into the 80's. Some areas in SE MA may approach 90 degrees before the day is done. It has started out a bit muggy, but dewpoints are already starting to fall in Northern new England with a wind shift to the WNW behind the front.
Humidity About To Break...Behind the warm front, warmer, steamy air with hazy breaks of sun as a dry slot shifts north for the afternoon. Highs climbing into the upper 70's and Lwr 80's south. We will have to watch for scattered showers and storms to start popping again across SNE during the afternoon and possibly form a line of stronger storms which could form and maybe even some severe weather if we get enough sun to break.
Hazy Humid Weather Returns...Watching for ShowersA more humid feel to the air, but without the heat in place it is not as uncomfortable. In fact, the light onshore wind will help to keep temps in the 70's and Lwr 80's today. Cooler temps confined to the coast with warmer temps to be found further inland, especially where there is sun.
Welcome Relief Will Come With A CostSunshine and high to mid level clouds streaming in from west to east. Weak high pressure building in from Canada is helping to steer in a light NNE wind in behind the front which is making for temp in the 70's at the coast and Lwr-mid 80's further inland.
Scattered PM Storms Will Break 7 Day Heat WaveDewpoints are off the charts today with many areas in SNE in the mid-70's. Mix this in with another day of high heat with highs climbing to near 90-95...well, you know the story. Heat Advisory in effect until 7 PM with a Heat Index, otherwise called Humiture, feeling close to 100-104 this afternoon in the haze.
Let's Get It Started!Temps are quickly warming up this Sunday thanks to a wind shift to the west. Instead of a cool onshore wind, it is a hot land breeze which will help to push many locations this afternoon to near 90. Winds are very light, so with the heating of the day, there is the potential for winds to turn onshore this afternoon for a slight cooling sea breeze for East MA beaches.
A Simple Wind Shift Makes a Huge Difference...Hottest Air Of The Summer AheadClouds are locked in across SNE for much of the day. We have seen periodic light showers and mist, but most of the time will be dry during the day. We will spend the day on the cooler cloudy side of this front with light onshore winds. This will keep temps in Lwr 70's t the beaches with 70's to near 80 father inland away from any ocean breeze.
A Brief Break From Heat & HumidityDry air will help for partly sunny skies across SNE today. Highs today will be cool with NE winds keeping temps in the Lwr 70s at the beaches, while inland away from the cool onshore wind, temps will climb into the 70's to near 80 by this afternoon. Clouds will increase again this afternoon.
Less Heat..More HumidityPartly sunny skies, With light SW winds and very humid conditions will remain in place Monday with highs in the mid-upper 80's. Not as hot but still stuffy! There is a chance with enough sun, that Boston points south could reach 90 again! But watch for afternoon showers and storms!
Scorching Heat Eases A Bit Next Week A heat advisory from 1 PM to 6PM where temps are expected to climb into the mid 90's, with dewpoints in Lwr 70's. This will make the air feel like 100-103 degrees this afternoon. Stifling! Light west winds will warm our eastern facing beaches into the Lwr 90's without much of a seabreeze at all. West winds will make for a warmer day at the south coast too where temps will climb to near 90 near Buzzards Bay and mid-upper 80's on the Cape.
Not Out Of The Woods Yet!For the Cape, clouds are locked in and here to stay. We will even have to watch for the risk of more showers with embedded thunder approaching during the afternoon. The unsettled weather will keep temps cooler in the Lwr-mid 70's for the Cape, 75-80 for SE MA, including the South Shore, who should remain in the clouds for much of the day as well. Meanwhile, If you head Northwest of Boston, it is a great day as the sun is out and temps will again be warming into the Lwr-mid 80's with partly sunny skies with warm and humid conditions.
Relentless Weather Pattern...More Storms To ComeClouds are breaking for partly sunny skies this afternoon with a breeze from the SSW. High temps will climb to 80-85 inland, with 70's right at the coast. Dewpoints are in the 60's to near 70 so there is a real feel of summer in the air
