Another day, another early September-like feel to the air today with highs in the upper 70s and low humidity in place. With that low humidity in place, many towns started this morning off in the 50s, with even a 49 showing up down on the Vineyard! Once again, temps slide back into the 50s in the burbs tonight and near 60 in Boston, so it’s another windows open, A/C off, type of night. Hopefully this summer has been easier on the electric bill for you vs. the brutal July of 2013.
As we go through the rest of the week, we’re actually watching two systems. One to our west and one to our east. The one to our west will affect New England first, then the one to our east looks to provide us with unsettled weather this weekend.
As an upper-level low to our west, with mighty chilly air aloft for the time of year, moves closer toward New England tomorrow and Friday, the chance for a pop up shower/storm is there the next couple days. The highest chance to see one will be north and west of Boston. The farther north and west you go, the higher chance of seeing one. In fact, if your plans take you to the Berkshires, Monadnocks, or to the Greens or Whites, I’d expect a few showers and storms to be in and out. Closer to the coast, we’re mainly dry.
As that upper-level low pulls north over the weekend, the front that’s been stuck offshore to our east actually backs back in toward the coast. With a wave of low pressure developing along it close to the mid-Atlantic and New England, we’ll have to increase the rain threat. The exact timing of it is still a bit of a question mark, but I’d at least expect some scattered showers Saturday and Sunday. It’s possible we even get a period of steadier rain too. If you’ve been planing to catch a movie at some point this summer, this weekend may have the weather for you.
A passing shower or storm is still possible Monday before drier air moves in Tuesday and Wednesday.
Enjoy the comfy weather tonight.
