A Camel’s Hump

I realize the whole camel/hump day thing expired back in 2013 but I’ve got nothing else so work with me. High temps yesterday reached the low 70s and while it won’t be quite as warm as today (60s) the 70s are coming back! The reason for the warmth is the jet stream and its configuration. That stream of air takes a dip across the western portion of the U.S. and on the eastern seaboard it flows north of New England forming a bit of a hump (like the kind found on a camel) when viewing it on a map.

This jet stream continues for the remainder of the week and start of the weekend so we’ll keep above normal temps until Sunday. Temps along the coast today won’t reach the 70s due to a gentle sea breeze that develops this afternoon but even with that gentle sea breeze the high temps reach the low 60s (normal high for Boston is 56). Another fantastic fall day.

Tomorrow and Friday offer more warm weather and even a little humidity on Friday. This increase in humidity means a few more clouds tomorrow afternoon through the day on Friday and even a few isolated showers tomorrow night & early Friday morning. Temps tomorrow are near 70 and into the low 70s Friday afternoon (record high is 73 in Boston—I’m telling you there’s a chance)

Weekend is dry both days but we also see a downturn in temps by Sunday with chilly air returning. High temps on Sunday only near 50…great fall day though….abundant sunshine & no wind ( good day for Pats game)
