Well the heat is off. And not just in the short term. The signs also point to a cooler long-term trend. Even as we warm up early next week, we aren’t breaking records or melting in sweltering humidity.
The winds will have an onshore component over the next few days. From the New Hampshire coast to the shores of Nantucket, temperatures will reach just 70 degrees in some places. Clouds are another story. They will come tomorrow and will stay part of the weekend.
The clouds are not here for this morning’s solar eclipse. If you are reading this at dawn take a peek outside (with the help of the proper goggles / protection). If you’re reading this after 6.30am, well, you can see the post-eclipse photos on our site.
The weekend is not washed out – despite what the icons may SEEM to show in the graph.
We risk a quick and transient downpour on Saturday, then an increased risk of a thunderstorm on Sunday afternoon. Lots of dry weather, and a rebound to the 80’s (with some humidity) for Sunday.
The front that triggers the storms on Sunday will still be around Monday and Tuesday as well (slow movement), so the threat of storms extends to those days as well. Already seeing some “top ten days” at the end of next week. Deep blue sky, low humidity and long days. I can’t beat the lead until the official start of summer.
