Forecast: Dry Weather Continues Perhaps Through Rest Of August

This article is more than 6 years old.

For the first time in a while, I felt crispness in the air when I got up this morning. I love mornings like this with cool air, low humidity and clear skies.

High pressure is in control and is going to remain dictating our weather for the foreseeable future.

There will be changes day to day over the next week, mostly with regard to temperature and humidity, but very little changes in sky condition.

School begins for many students next week. For some of you this may be the final week of summer with the entire family home and the ability to head to the beach. If you can take a day this week to enjoy the fine weather, tomorrow is likely one of the best days. To be honest though, the rest of the week looks close to being equally as nice.

On Friday a cold front will pass. This means the air will be warm and quite humid on that day before the front. There is the chance of a shower or storm with the front, but most of us won’t see any rain.  As a matter of fact, it might not rain until near Labor Day weekend, and that’s really far out in the future during which so much can change.

You might notice the daylight is becoming less and less. We are losing just over two minutes and 30 seconds of daylight. This means over the course of a week, about 20 minutes of daylight have disappeared. Fall is coming, even if the temperatures won’t reflect it.

Today: Mostly sunny. Very pleasant temperatures. Highs in the low 80s.

Tonight: Mainly clear to partly cloudy and comfortable. Lows around 57 in the cooler valleys to 65 in Boston and other metro areas.

Wednesday: Sunny and warm, a bit more humid. Highs in the mid to upper 80s.

Thursday: Mainly sunny and warm. Highs in the 80s.

Friday: Partly sunny with a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm. Highs in the 80s.

Saturday: Lots of sunshine. Highs 80-85.
