Today's Weather: Another Lovely Day, With Temperatures Nearing 70
Yesterday was a stunning day across the region with wall-to-wall sunshine, low humidity and comfortable temperatures.
Today will basically be a carbon copy, with a little bit less in the way of wind. There will also be an increase in afternoon cloudiness.
Average high temperatures remain in the lower 70s the first week of June and we will actually be a degree or two below today. This is especially true along the coast, with a feeble sea breeze.
Things turn a bit more complicated on Wednesday, as a warm front starts to approach. These systems can be tricky because if the frontal boundary remains south of the region, we stay cool and cloudy. If it goes north, we end up warm and humid. When the boundary sits right on top of us, it's quite changeable and we can see a large temperature gradient between northern and southern Massachusetts.
I think there will be a few showers with the system, especially early on Wednesday and perhaps later in the afternoon or evening. Thursday is also a little unsettled. I'll have to keep showers in the forecast. By the time we get to Thursday afternoon, anywhere from a tenth of an inch to a half-inch of rain will likely have fallen. You'll also notice a touch of humidity from later Wednesday into Thursday.
The good news on all of this is, as the weather clears for Friday, it should continue right through the weekend. There are still graduations and reunions and of course, June weddings ahead. The Boston Pride parade is also on Saturday. Any of those events will benefit from the dry forecast.
