Forecast: Hot And Humid With Highs In 80s

An easterly flow of marine air kept areas within 50 miles of the coastline cool yesterday. This morning we find that cool air poised to be pushed back out to sea as warm and humid air makes a brief run into the area for the afternoon.

There are a few showers this morning especially south of Boston. This is a result of the remnants of tropical storm Ana, which is now passing out to sea.

Sunshine will be increasing this afternoon and, with the sun, temperatures will become hot. With humidity and temperatures well into the 80s, it’s going to feel somewhat uncomfortable.

As a cold front passes later today and overnight we have the chance for a period of showers. Not everyone is going to get rain and if you don’t, it will be another three to four days more before we might see some rain again.

The drought conditions are growing in intensity, and we need 3 to 5 inches of rain to make up for the water deficit.

The weather turns cooler and dry tomorrow, but a gusty wind will blow the pollen around and make it quite uncomfortable for allergy suffers.

Less wind on Thursday along with sunshine will make that day a winner. Cool and cloudy weather may be in the cards for at least part of the weekend. More tomorrow.

Tuesday: Coastal fog and a few morning showers. Turning hot and humid with sunshine and clouds. Highs of 82 to 88.

Tuesday night: Early showers. Otherwise clearing and cooler. Lows of 45 to 50.

Wednesday: Becoming mostly sunny with temperatures in the mid-60s and gusty winds all day.

Thursday: Generally sunny with a high of 65 to 70.

Friday: Sunny with a high near 66 to 73.

Saturday: Clouds and some sun. Chance of showers. Highs in the low to mid 60s.
