18 days down in August and still no searing heat, and no searing heat is in the forecast.  The hottest temperature in Boston so far this month has been 85 degrees and the monthly average is running a couple degrees below seasonal levels.  If you’re not a high heat and humidity fan, this has been your summer.  If you do like the heat… well, at least we’ve had a lot of dry weather.

While we’ve lacked the heat for much of the summer, we have not lacked those low humidity days and cool overnights.  Tonight will be much the same as temps slide quickly after sunset.  We’ll be back to near 50 in the burbs and near 60 in the city by daybreak tomorrow. 

For those folks that have left the A/C in the off position, it looks like you’ll get another week of saving on the electric bills.  Tuesday and Wednesday will be the warmest days ahead with highs in the mid to upper 70s coast and low 80s inland. Great for the beach, the golf course and any outdoor activities you have planned.

As an area of high pressure builds in from our northeast by Thursday and Friday, it’ll do two things:  1) Keep the bulk of the rain away, although some more clouds may mix in.  2) Keep us cool with highs only in the low to mid 70s with coolest temps along the Cape and Southeast Mass with an east to northeast wind.

We’ll keep an eye on an ocean storm to our southeast over the weekend, but right now, much of the precip looks to stay offshore.  That low may increase the east to northeast wind here though, making a bit cool at the beaches.

Enjoy the fantastic weather the next couple days!
