Updated 1:30 pm: Dry air aloft can be a forecast killer. Virtually full sunshine has appeared pretty much everywhere except Southeast MA and RI. Expect highs in the mid to upper 70s for most – warmest in western New England, perhaps in the low 80s in northwest Vermont.
Regarding Hermine, it appears that most spots in northern MA and southern NH are going to stay dry with a slight chance of an afternoon shower – the best chance for rain is merely a chance and tomorrow. Winds here for today will be your run-of-the-mill northeast 5-15 mph winds, strongest at the coast. What I said last night about points south of Boston still applies, though. Clouds will be the rule today for most; although the sun has made a few attempts to peek out, I think it will be mostly unsuccessful in doing so around here, but beyond southern NH and southwest coastal Maine, skies should be mostly sunny up north and in Vermont.
High temperatures for today will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s around here, as well as points further south. If vacationing up north or in western New England, expect highs in the mid 70s to low 80s.
Have a nice Labor Day!
