I *heart* summer. I so do. We’ve now reached the warm months of the year–at least according to the calendar–and today, the first full day of summer will be warm & humid. As I blog, we are in the process of getting rid of some fog but this time of year, fog doesn’t stand a chance against that strong summer sun. That same strong sun will boost temps into the low-mid 80s by afternoon. A sea breeze kicks in this afternoon which keeps coastal cities, towns & beaches in the 70s. Just a slight risk of a stray shower later today but otherwise we are storm-free, despite the heat & humidity.
Tomorrow offers more warmth & humidity but unlike today, a cool front will slam into the warmth & humidity during the afternoon.This will lead to some scattered showers and thunderstorms. I do think the storms will strong & perhaps even severe–especially across western/central New England (Worcester Hills & points west). The added concern tomorrow will be some strong wind passing through some of the thunderstorms. When this happens, those thunderstorms can rotate (sometimes a precursor to tornadoes). I’m not a fan of hype but I did want to put the risk of some severe thunderstorms (including an isolated tornado in New England) on your radar. Catch a newscast later tonight-tomorrow morning for more (as well as twitter–a great tool on severe weather days).
In any event, this cool front will sweep warmth & humidity out to sea by midweek setting us up for some nice summer weather both Wednesday & Thursday.
