BOSTON — A big change in the weather Wednesday as we will see much lower humidity. A cold front passed offshore earlier and now drier air is working into the region. Winds will be brisk Wednesday morning and early afternoon as the new air mass becomes established across the area.
Temperatures are still going to be running on the warm side reaching well into the 80s. These temperatures are running about 10 degrees above the average high for the date, but are still far away from any records for this time of year which are still in the 90s.
A more comfortable night ahead allows us to open the windows again and enjoy some refreshing air. Lows Thursday morning will be in the upper 50s, a marked change from the near 70 degree nights of the recent past.
Thursday, like Wednesday will feature a lot of sunshine and warm temperatures also in the mid 80s. It will be be a bit cooler over Cape Cod, but still a great beach day.
Friday is a hot and increasingly humid day. Highs will once again approach 90 and with the added moisture it will be a very summery day.
Sleeping without air conditioning will be difficult Friday night as temperatures remain quite high all night not falling much below 70 with a lot of mugginess to the air.
A cold front approaches Saturday and will finally bring an end to this summer-like week. A blend of clouds and sunshine, high levels of humidity and very warm readings make Saturday the last of the truly summery days for a while. Expect some showers and storms in the afternoon, which will form ahead of the next air mass. By Sunday the humidity is lower and highs won’t reach the 80s for the first time in a week.
Enjoy this summer stretch, it won’t last forever.
Today: Sunny and warm. It will be much drier with highs in the mid 80s.
Tonight: Clear and more comfortable with lows in the 50s to near 60.
Thursday: Sunny and warm, but still comfortable levels of humidity with highs in the mid 80s.
Friday: Sunny hot and becoming more humid with highs 85 to 90.
Saturday: A blend of clouds and sunshine. There will be a humid afternoon and evening showers and storms with highs in the mid 80s.
Sunday: A blend of clouds and sunshine with much cooler and drier air. Expect highs to be in the lower to mid 70s.
