The Sun's Vacation
Posted by Jeremy Reiner
As wet as June was (3rd wettest), July has been very dry so far (Boston is running about 2" below normal) with only 2 rainy days. Well, we can make that three as we have a plume of tropical rains marching across New England. This band of steady, widespread rain won't spend the day with us but we do own it up until 9am with more showers later today.
This second batch of showers for the afternoon hours will be scattered in nature....meaning some of you may go the entire afternoon without seeing that second batch of rain. Despite the scattering of afternoon showers, you can plan on all sorts of clouds--including the beaches. it will be a humid day with afternoon temps in the upper 70s--some towns south of the MA Pike in the low 80s. That Sox game should be OK--just a small chance of a brief shower early this evening.
Tomorrow offers a whole new weather system--a cool front--but it will behave more like a dryline (Texas thing). This dryline will shove the morning clouds, sprinkles & humidity out to sea early afternoon setting the stage for some awesome weather late tomorrow and lasting into Thursday with overnight lows in the 50s and afternoon highs on Thursday in the upper 70s.
Enjoy the raindrops & sunshine!
