Forecast: Humid With Scattered Showers

You likely have noticed how much more humid it’s become over the past 24 hours as a southerly flow of air has transported increasingly moist air northward. Overnight some showers brought some rain to a few areas, mostly west of Route 495, but there have been some rain showers elsewhere.

Today will be an unsettled sort of day with the risk of showers existing for much of the day but peaking during the afternoon and early evening.

Highs will reach the mid 70s, but it feels warmer with all the moisture in the air. I only expect about a 10th of an inch of rainfall or even less for most, but if you get a thunderstorm, you might see closer to half an inch of rainfall.

The weather turns dry again for the middle of the week and very warm.   Tomorrow will be a wonderful beach day as highs reach well into the 80s inland and even around 80 along parts of the coast. Tides are low during the middle of the day, so you might have to walk a bit further to test out the chilly water.

Another front passes on Thursday with a chance of a few showers during a mostly to partly sunny day. It continues to be warm, more like mid-summer. Friday remains very warm, but drier and cooler air will move in during the weekend. Sunday is my pick of the upcoming weekend with a comfortable and refreshing air mass in place.

Have a great day.

Tuesday: Humid with scattered showers, especially in the afternoon. Some sunny periods with highs in the mid to upper 70s. Cooler on Cape Cod and the south coast.

Tuesday night: Early showers and muggy, then clearing and mild. Lows of 61 to 65.

Wednesday: Patchy fog before 7 a.m. Otherwise, mostly sunny with a high of 81 to 86.

Thursday: Partly sunny and warm. May shower. Highs in the mid 80s.

Friday: Mostly sunny with a high of 80 to 84.

Saturday: Partly cloudy with chance of showers. Highs in the 70s.
