Our heat wave has come to a crashing end, but expect very humid conditions to remain for a day or so. With skies turning cloudy today, along with rain likely in the afternoon (and especially the evening), expect a high around 79 today, with a west wind around 5-10 mph. Tonight will feature rain, with a low around 62, and a south wind around 5 mph, turning to the northeast at 5-10 mph.
We have a relatively unusual situation for this time of the year on our hands: a midnight high for Friday! The official high for tomorrow will probably be in the upper 60s to near 70 at midnight tonight, but for practical purposes, your daytime high will be around 62 at sunrise, with temperatures falling into the upper 50s by midday and then just staying there. Expect showers at times, with a northeast wind of 5-15 mph. Showers are likely Friday night, with a low around 54, and a northeast wind of 5-10 mph.
While the weekend won’t be 100% junk like Memorial Day weekend was, the Fourth of July weekend won’t be that far off, as we will be experiencing essentially a very weak Nor’Easter. We will now be 0-for-2 in terms of weather on big summer holiday weekends. (What will Labor Day weekend bring us?) Saturday will be even worse than Friday in some regards: with a cold northeast wind off the Gulf of Maine, expect a high around 57 Saturday. Scattered showers will be around, but even though it likely won’t be a washout, it will be cold, damp, and cloudy throughout.
There is a continuing chance of showers Saturday night, with a low around 54. Conditions improve somewhat Sunday, as right now it looks like we’ll get to around 70 degrees with at least partial sunshine. There will still be lots of clouds and some showers, as the low pressure system inches its way out of our region, but this is still pretty terrible for the Fourth of July. We finally see real improvement Sunday night, as clouds decrease with a low around 55, and especially Monday, which will be mostly sunny and 82. The real saving grace here is that Monday is the official holiday for the Fourth of July, so many of you will have the day off. Expect highs to approach the 90-degree mark once again by Tuesday.
Have a great day!
