Fun In The Sun – Boston News, Weather, Sports

Another fantastic summer day in prospect for Thursday thanks to a slow area of ​​high pressure. Last summer (our 3rd wettest) the slow moving high pressure cells were few and far between, so it’s been great so far in this young summer to be treated to all that sunshine. Granted, lawns and gardens could use a glass of water once in a while, but no rain for the next two days.

This map shows the forecast for high temperatures throughout the region…70 on the coast/beaches and between 80 and 80 further inland. Delicious. On Friday we will see more sunshine but it will be hot (even for Boston metro beaches) as most cities hit the low to mid 90’s! Youza. At least it will be dry heat as dew points will remain well below the 65 degree threshold. If Friday kicks off your long holiday weekend, it promises to be warm but good for pools, lakes and of course beaches.

You notice the chance of showers and thunderstorms on Saturday. It’s a cold front sinking into warm, very humid air, as seen here on Saturday’s surface map…

Something else I’ve noticed since mid-May…every time the heat tries to lock in New England, a cool/cold front rolls in from Canada and knocks the heat out of the area…curious to see if this will be a recurring theme that will deepen in the summer (limited heat). Luckily, that front won’t get stuck in New England for the rest of the holiday weekend…

Sunday seems exceptional throughout the region and Monday seems good for the most part. I think there could be an isolated shower/storm on Monday afternoon, but only 10-20%. Normally I wouldn’t mention such a low chance, but being the penultimate holiday weekend, I just wanted to let you know that there is a very small chance of a storm (as of today….. by Friday, the storm chance could be completely removed from the forecast). Are you going to the Cape Town/Lakes region? Here’s a first look…

Ciao for now!
