Could Be Better… Will Be Better

Alright, if this weekend was the start of your vacation week, this is probably not the weather you envisioned while making your summer plans back in the cold and snowy winter.  Fear not, we will have more typical August weather resuming as early as tomorrow as highs snap back to near 80.

The battle today however is the clouds, occasional showers and the onshore wind.  Highs range from the upper 60s at the coast to the mid to upper 70s in the Merrimack Valley.  Most of the showers we get are light and during the morning hours to midday with mainly dry weather mid to late afternoon.  The exception to that may be Buzzards Bay and the Cape and Islands, where showers may be in and out in the mid to late afternoon too. The tropical-like downpours look to miss us just offshore, so rain totals today will be light.

As we get into next week, a few storms pop in the afternoon once and a while, mainly away from the coastline, but with temperatures back into the 80s, we’ll get some hours in to lay by the pool or at the beach too.  In terms of day to day activity… A few scattered storms fire tomorrow afternoon north and west of Boston, an isolated storm is possible Tuesday, and more a widespread batch of storms expected Wednesday afternoon with a cold front.

A spot shower is still not out of the question Thursday, but it does appear that another refreshing charge of Canadian air is on the way in for the end of the week and move in for next weekend.  If this set-up indeed plays out, we’ll feature highs near 80 with sun and low humidity Friday, into next weekend.

Have a good Sunday.
