Forecast: Another 'Stellar' Day With Clear Skies, Warm Air

This article is more than 5 years old.

Another stellar day is underway with clear skies, light winds, relatively low humidity and warm temperatures. This is perfect weather for this time of year.

Of course, we all know these days are numbered and even with readings 10 degrees or more above seasonal averages, there will be a cooling trend eventually.

Take a look at the map below showing expected rainfall totals over the next 10 days:

Notice that there isn’t a drop of rain forecast for most of southern New England. The small amount over Cape Cod on this map might not even happen. The bottom line is that we are looking at another very long stretch of very dry weather.

High pressure remains in control this week and won’t relinquish its grip until late this weekend. Until then, highs are going to reach well into the 80s inland and in the 70s to around 80 over Cape Cod.

Clouds are going to be hard to come by until sometime Saturday when a few might dot the sky. I put a chance for showers in the forecast for Sunday, but the chance is small, and there’s actually a better chance everything stays dry all weekend.

Even into next week, the weather looks to be controlled by a dry and warm pattern.

Today: Sunny, with a high 82-86 cooler at the coast.

Thursday: Sunny and warm Highs in the lower to mid 80s. Cooler at the Cape.

Friday: Sunny, with a high near in the mid 80s. Cooler at the beaches.

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 81.

Sunday: Sun and clouds mixed. Cooler. A shower is possible, but still mostly dry with highs in the 70s.
