More clouds and cooler through the 4th of July

As we approach the 4th of July holiday weekend, we’ll see increasing clouds and a slight cool down.

Before we dive into the holiday, let’s talk about the rest of your Thursday evening.  We saw highs surge into the upper 80s to near 90 inland, low 80s at the coast including Boston due to an onshore breeze out of the southeast.

Aside from a spot downpour/thunderstorm, we’re looking at a muggy evening.  Tonight, temperatures only simmer into the 60s under partly cloudy skies.

Friday starts with some sunny breaks, then clouds build in through the late morning and continue to linger.  Some downpours and thunderstorms are likely for western MA, southern VT and as far east as central MA, but most remain dry especially east of 495 for Friday.
