BOSTON (WHDH) - Today was a “perfect 10,” in my book. You can smell summer is getting closer, and it smells much like dinner cooking on the grill (is that just my imagination?). Days like today, I feel like Oliver Twist: “Please, Sir. I want some more!” I mean, come on! We really want another day like today, right?! Highs were a touch above normal for this time of year, winds were light, dewpoints stayed in check (no humidity) and skies were bright. Lovely. More, please!
Well, the weekend isn’t a complete loss, but we do have some changes in store. Tomorrow is another warm day, with highs climbing into the low to mid 70s. However, the changes on the horizon will start to become apparent as the clouds increase tomorrow afternoon. I do think we will stay dry through Saturday, though I can’t rule out a quick isolated spot shower during the evening. The real rain holds off until after dark.
Low pressure moves to the south of New England, but still close enough to bring our lawns a drink. It does look like the steadiest rain is overnight Saturday, into Sunday morning (as I mentioned before), but also more likely for points S and E of Boston (closer to the South Coast = more rain). Rain totals should be between 0.2″ – 0.5″, generally speaking… but closer to an inch for Cape Cod, Buzzard’s Bay, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. Showers taper Sunday afternoon, but temps will stay cool (mid to upper 50s) with an on-shore breeze.
Unfortunately, that energy sort of stalls out and dances around to our southeast for a few days… which will keep the clouds and the threat for showers around. Temps will also stay cool Sunday – Tuesday… BUT – on the other side of that, temps will warm into the 80s! Mid to end-of-week warmth is on the way for us, and we may even seen Boston hit that “first 80° reading of the season!”
Have a great weekend! – Breezy
