Forecast: One More Summer-Like Day

Temperatures Thursday reached and exceeded 90 degrees in many areas including Boston. There were a lot of places that set or tied records for the day. Today will still be warm, but with clouds and the risk of showers I don’t see the area making it to 90 again.

A cold front will cross the area this afternoon and bring us a renewed chance of showers and potentially a few storms. There's certainly the possibility that some of these storms could become strong but I don't expect widespread severe weather during the afternoon.

Tomorrow will be a dryer and cooler day with temperatures in the 70s as a northwesterly flow of Canadian air takes over. This is probably our best day of the weekend, as on Sunday an area of clouds and rainfall will be close at hand.

I'm not expecting a washout by any means, but we're going to insert the chance of showers back into the forecast. After the rain showers on Sunday, it looks like a dry flow resumes starting on Monday with seasonably mild temperatures.

There may be a warm up later next week, but at least for the next seven to 10 days, the temperature should remain pretty close to seasonal averages and I don't see any more 90 degree weather just yet, although I think that we will warm up again before the month comes to a close.
