Summer’s Surge Ahead

You know how it is around New England, just because the calendar changes, doesn’t mean our weather always follows the flow. Whether it be early Spring snow, near 70 on Christmas Eve, or other anomalies in place, Mother Natures seems to keep it interesting around here. While the weather isn’t exactly wild over the next few days, it certainly will deviate well away from the averages as summer stages a comeback as the temps press 90 degrees by Friday.

Before we get there, we do have to talk about the remnant low to our low, formerly called Hermine.  As that low spins its wheels for the final times, the transition to get it off the waters, just south of us, is still a slow process. Not that it’s much of a wind maker anymore, more like a cloud and occasional shower maker for us. Those scattered showers are with us this morning and a few spotty showers pivot in from the southeast east through the rest of the day. Amid the clouds and spotty showers, some midday/afternoon breaks of sun are possible too.  It’ll be a muggy day with highs near 80 and dewpoints pushing 65-70.

That high humidity lingers through Thursday.  Also lingering Thursday will be morning clouds and a few spotty early showers before partial sunshine and drier weather rules the mid to late afternoon with temps bouncing into the low to mid 80s.

Ironically, to get to 90, we need a cold front to come through… say what?  Yes, a “cold” front slides through with an isolated shower or storm overnight Thursday.  As winds turn west to northwest Friday behind that front, the atmosphere dries out but is not in a race to cool off.  With good mixing and a good deal of sunshine, afternoon numbers press 85 in Worcester to near 90 in Boston and much of eastern Mass away from the south coast.

Another front moves in late Saturday night and Sunday morning with a few scattered showers/storms before pushing offshore Sunday afternoon. Behind that front, it’s a brief cool down with temps on Monday in the upper 70s and lows Monday and Tuesday morning back into the low 50s. While the pattern is not in a rush to bring in deeper, longer prolonged cool weather, it’ll certainly start to look more and more like Fall with us losing over 80 minutes of daylight over the next month.  Don’t boo me… just the messenger.

Have a great day!
