Storms End As Heat Leaves
Posted by Chris Lambert
As scattered storms fired up by mid afternoon, we watched an intense line of storms prompt several severe thunderstorm warnings across Plymouth and Bristol counties. That line brought gusty winds, torrential rain and certainly a plethora of cloud to ground lightning to many towns.
That was line #1. Line #2 is closer to the front, which is northwest of us late this afternoon. As that front gets closer, a few more storms may fire into the early evening. A severe thunderstorm watch does remain in effect until 9:00PM to guard against any additional storms. With that said, sometimes when the first line becomes quite powerful, the second line tends to be weaker and more sparsely felt. That may be the case this evening. If you heading out to Bon Jovi, they're will be many dry hours from 5PM on, but another passing shower/storm can't be completely ruled out.
Any leftover storms fade out this evening, leaving a slowly clearing and cooling overnight. Temps finally reach the 60s again in the suburbs by tomorrow morning, but still near 70 in Boston.
Sunday's forecast overall looks good with sun and clouds, dew points dropping into the upper 50s and highs running near 80 at the coast, and middle 80s inland. The Cape and Islands start off with more clouds and perhaps a shower first thing in the morning, but overall, will get a dry day.
Monday's a beauty before some humidity and showers and storms roll in Tuesday. While humidity and a rain chance returns Tuesday, the heat will not. In fact, beyond Tuesday, the pattern hold temps in the upper 70s and lower 80s with an active pattern occasionally throwing in batches of showers and storms. If your grass is looking like mine, the blades that are still standing will love this upcoming forecast.
Stay cool and be safe this afternoon!
