The muggy air didn’t last long yesterday morning as a gusty northwest wind ushered in lower humidity and cooler temps by the afternoon.  In fact, winds at times gusted past 40mph with Cambridge topping the list with a 51mph gust.

That low humidity that moved in lingers today, and tomorrow… and the next day.  You get the theme here?… yup, much of this upcoming week features low humidity and dry weather.   That’ll provide us with cool overnights and warm days.  Wind gusts today are still high, 30-35mph and tomorrow they’ll be closer to 25mph.  Highs today run near 75 and close in on 80 Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

While I don’t see a lot of rain, there are a couple of days to watch for close calls with the chance for showers.  As in area of low pressure slides just to our south Thursday night and Friday, more clouds likely mix in, but I think the bulk of that rain stays south of us.  Then, that area of low pressure likely cuts off and forms a coastal low off the eastern Seaboard over the weekend.  Right now, I’m thinking that the high building in from the north will keep that storm down near the southeast US and not across New England.  That should help keep it dry around here for Dad’s Day.

We’ll keep you posted on that.  Otherwise, enjoy the week.
