Fab for the 4th!

Happy Independence Day, everyone! Welcome to my first blog post!

What a weekend we had — we hit a high of 80° on Saturday and 84° Sunday (we’ll forget about the little bump in the road storms we had Friday eve). The warm and dry pattern continues today for your 4th of July festivities. Highs today will range from 85°-90° so whether you’re grilling out, hitting the beach or cheering on the Sox at Fenway the weather will cooperate!

Dewpoints stay in the 50s today, too, so we don’t have to worry about the Frizz Factor. Unfortunately, that will change tomorrow. I’m sure many of you are going out to watch fireworks tonight. Temperatures tonight will be pleasant and comfortable mostly in the mid 70s. Reminder: We haven’t had 4th of July weather this good in quite a few years!

For tonight we’re keeping an eye on a front that will track just south of New England. The challenge here is determining how far north the showers will reach. I think any rain and storms we do see will be south of the Pike and mainly along the south coast of Massachusetts. Low clouds will develop tonight into Tuesday morning then start to clear out by the afternoon… can’t rule out the chance for a thunderstorm tomorrow after either. Temperatures tomorrow will vary. I think a seabreeze will keep coastal area in the 70s with mid 80s for the interior. It will also feel much more humid tomorrow as dewpoints climb to the 60s.

High pressure builds back over the region Wednesday. Temps look to top out in the low to mid 90s… humidity will stick around on this day too. Thursday the chance for storms returns and stays with us each day through the weekend.

Looks like the dog days of summer have arrived. My first blog post wouldn’t be complete without a Sebastian picture… here he is sporting his red, white and blue! Also, please don’t forget to keep a close eye on your pets tonight during firework — the loud noises can really scare our four-legged friends.

Have a happy and safe 4th, everyone!
