Although temperatures were well into the 80s yesterday, humidity levels dropped significantly. Dew point readings slipped to the upper 40s, which is pretty comfortable this time of year.
It looks like a repeat Friday for the Boston area as weak high pressure remains in control.
For the most part, the weekend looks OK. Humidity levels will be slightly higher Saturday and Sunday, but most of the time should be rain-free. A front moving through Sunday evening will produce a shower or T-storm in a few towns.
Cooler, drier air will follow overnight into Monday.
Sunshine returns for the beginning of the workweek with comfortable air over us once again.
Since we are in the middle of hurricane season, it’s worth mentioning that there is a cluster of unorganized thunderstorms and tropical moisture across Florida and adjacent waters. In addition, a system well out in the Atlantic has the potential to organize into a tropical storm by the end of next week.
