What a start to the weekend yesterday with the sunshine, low humidity, and comfortable temps for pretty much anything outdoors.
Today, it looks like we’ll do it all over again with morning sunshine, scattered cumulus afternoon clouds to mix in with that sun, and temps that run in the mid to upper 70s at the coast with sea breezes to the mid 80s inland. Oh yeah, the humidity is low too and if you’re heading to the beach, high tide runs late morning Sunday and seas run 1-2 feet with just a low risk of rip currents.
Yesterday, there was a spot shower in southern Maine and southern NH, and I can’t completely rule another one out again there today, and perhaps even making it into northeast Mass, but the overall theme here is for another nice day.
The weather is pretty much on cruise control into Tuesday, although humidity increases early next week and clouds increase Tuesday.
As another vigorous system plunges into the Midwest and heads east on Wednesday, we’ll increase the threat of rain and kick up the winds. With a moist southeasterly flow, that rain may be heavy at times, along with the threat of embedded strong storms.
It’s not a system that gets stuck for long however, as it pulls just far enough northeast to allow for drier weather hereThursday, Friday, and even into next weekend. Temps are a bit cool toward the end of the week with highs mid 70s to near 80. While it’s mainly dry here, we’ll see scattered showers and storms in the afternoon across Central/Northern/Western New England.
On the astronomy side of things… Tonight also marks the 2nd Supermoon of 3 in a row (July 12, Aug 10, Sep 9). http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2014/10jul_supermoons/ Although, you’ve probably already noticed that moon looking nice and big/bright in the sky last night. Moonrise tonight is just after 7:30PM and it won’t set until almost 7:00AM Monday. The Perseid Meteor Shower also peaks Aug 11-13th, however, the light from that Supermoon may obscure the view of some of those shooting stars. http://earthsky.org/astronomy-essentials/everything-you-need-to-know-perseid-meteor-shower
Have a great rest of the weekend!
