Summer Builds Back In

After a refreshing air mass settled in for a couple of days, we turn up the warmth and humidity through the weekend thanks to a warm front moving through.

That warm front triggers a few showers early this morning, but in it's wake, mainly dry hours from mid morning, through mid afternoon with clouds and peeks of sun.  While I can't rule out a passing midday shower, the chance is rather low, about 20%.  A better chance for a few mid-late afternoon thunderstorms fires across western Mass, Vermont and Central New Hampshire, a few of those storms may drift close to 495 by late afternoon.  Some storms across central and western New England may be strong late today.  Farther east, along the coast, this afternoon is mainly dry with a slight risk of a passing shower or storm this evening.  Foo Fighters tonight?… A slight chance for a passing shower/storm, but much of the time should be rain free.  

Any shower or thunderstorm tonight will fade out by tomorrow morning, leaving a hazy sky for Sunday.  We really turn up the heat and humidity tomorrow, with many towns near 90 during the afternoon and dew points near 70.  While I do expect many towns to hit 90, Boston may fall just short as the wind bends onshore mid to late afternoon, keeping temps in the 80s.  Much of tomorrow is dry, although a late-day/evening stray storm is possible with all the heat and humidity in place.  If we don't hit 90 in Boston tomorrow or Monday, we'd now be in sole position of 3rd place for latest 90 degree heat on record (latest was August 6th in 1906).  

Just because we don't hit 90, doesn't mean we can't have nice summer weather.  If this upcoming week is your vacation week, you're looking good with temps generally running in the 80s and aside from a few scattered storms on Monday, much of next week looks dry. 

Have a good weekend!
