Ready for an active pattern? Starting today through the middle of next week a number of storms will take a swipe at us. None of these are epic blockbusters but they will be capable of blocking out the sun and tossing raindrops our way.
Our first tussle with these storms is already under way now (7am) with mostly cloudy skies and as we step through the day, the clouds will own us and eventually some rain showers too--especially after 2pm. Due to all the clouds & raindrops, our temperatures have a hard time making it out of the 30s for much of the day but by late afternoon the temps will hop over the 40 mark. Look for a scattering of rain showers this evening with temps holding in the low 40s.
Saturday will start how Friday finished....clouds & showers but as we work through the day the showers will fade offering dry weather after 2pm. The clouds will hang though for the entire day keeping temps pinned in the low & mid 40s.
Sunday will be the drier of the 2 weekend days despite all sorts of clouds. High temps will be a smidge warmer than Saturday with most towns reaching the upper 40s. Sunday will be the day for getting the Christmas tree of putting up the holiday lights outside.
As we sneak a peak into next week, another bag of clouds & showers will arrive Monday morning--take a break--then re-appear by Monday evening. At this time, the Patriots game will feature showers with temps in the upper 40s.
Heat and a bit of humidity fed a strong - and sometimes severe - line of thunderstorms today. By the time the dinner hour rolled around (6pm-ish), the storms had consolidated into a line. Everyone got a drink of water and a big drop in temperatures - some falling nearly 20 degrees in minutes!
Well, we had a lot of clouds this afternoon, but at least not a lot of rain. Sure a few showers were out there, scattered about, but hopefully they didn't ruin any plans you had with dad. Temps made it into the mid to upper 70s, which is close to the average for this time of year. In fact, the whole 7-day forecast is within 5 degrees of average each and every day. That means lots of upper 70s and lower 80s on the board. Not bad being average this time of year, huh?
Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there, and to my dad as well. So what's on tap for the day? Golf, grilling, just hanging out? Whatever it is, all and all, it's still a pretty good day for dad weather-wise. I wish I could say the Father's Day forecast exactly repeats Saturday, but we do have a few late afternoon showers to track.
After 8" of rain in the last two weeks, we needed/deserved this one! What a day with temps just shy of 80 degrees, low humidity, plenty of sunshine and a refreshing breeze. We'll trade those sunny skies in for mainly clear skies tonight as temperatures fall to near 60 in Boston, but in the upper 40s and lower 50s in the suburbs.
