Forecast: The Weekend Will Start Sunny And End Showery

Another weekend is here and it’s looking rather nice to start, and rather cloudy and perhaps showery to finish.

This morning started off cool, but a nice warm-up is coming, with temperatures near 70 around lunch and a couple of degrees warmer by 2 p.m.

This evening brings the full harvest moon rising around 7 p.m. and illuminating the landscape. The Red Sox game will take place as the moon rises in right field; it will be quite a nice sight.

Tomorrow is a great September day with warm temperatures and brilliant sunshine. A few clouds will show up in the afternoon and evening before the sun goes down about 10 minutes prior to 7.

Sunday isn’t a wonderful day for weather. I expect much more humid conditions and more clouds. There will also be an increasing chance of showers. The morning is likely dry, so plan on getting outdoor activities done then if you want to avoid any rainfall.

Most of the showers will hold off until Sunday night and early Monday; that’s our best shot at seeing a general rainfall. It won’t do anything more than slow down the drought conditions, but anything is a help. The severe drought area has expanded across the area so please conserve water.

Warm weather will return next week with temperatures returning to the 80s  for several days next week and the humidity levels will be moderate after being quite high on Monday.
