Not Perfect, But Pretty Good
Posted by Chris Lambert
The pressure is on right? Now we're in August, and weekends before the Fall grind of school and no more vacations are numbered, so we need to make these weekends count! For that, we need nice weather.
We'll do ok this weekend. It won't be picture perfect, but we'll capture many dry hours overall. Today starts off with plenty of clouds and an occasional spotty morning sprinkle/shower amid the mostly dry morning, with the best chance for a passing shower along and south of the Route 44 line from Plymouth to Taunton to Providence, points south. That means the Cape and Islands too as breaks of sun are sometimes hard to come by there. Highs range from the upper 70s down across the Cape to the low to mid 80s around the Boston area and through many of the suburbs. More breaks of sunshine are likely along and north of the Pike this afternoon. However, once we get enough sun and enough daytime heating, inlands communities run a slight risk of a passing late-day shower or storm after lots of dry hours.
Any isolated early evening storm fades quickly post sunset, and we're in for a comfy overnight and lows head for the upper 50s in the burbs to the mid 60s in the city. Those mainly clear skies overnight allows for a mostly sunny start on Sunday. Sunshine rules most of Sunday morning before midday clouds build and with enough cold air aloft (means instability), a few scattered showers or a thunderstorm manage to pop. Mostly after 3:00PM. They'll be scattered about mid afternoon to early evening, so it's something to keep an eye on. Tomorrow is a brighter day across the Cape, with a low rain chance until after 4:00PM there.
Monday comes with a taste of Fall. Low humidity, mid 70s and a cool overnight.
Have a good weekend!
