I guess with a heat-less summer that we’ve had, the hottest day of the year occurring in SEPTEMBER is only natural. Boston hit 93 yesterday but hitting 90 is not all that unusual after August 31st (last year September 11th had a high temp of 97!). What was a little unusual was the tropical humidity joining the heat that made it so unbearable. Thankfully that humidity is gone…for now.
Today & tomorrow are fantastic late summer days with mostly sunny skies and seasonably warm temps with most towns reaching the mid 80s during the afternoon hours. Perhaps a bit warm but at least the humidity is held in check. Unfortunately, the muggies creep back into New England by Friday as temps climb up near 90 under a sunny sky.
As for the weekend, Saturday is classic hazy, hot & humid day with temps near 90 by afternoon. We’ll also see a cold front charge out of Canada late in the day and this front will plow into the late summer heat/humidity. Scattered storms are likely but not until after 5pm (3pm in the Berkshires/Lakes region). These storms will lead to much cooler & more comfortable air for Sunday. #Refreshing.
