I blew this one. Never expected solid rain to get into eastern MA the way it did. However, blown forecast aside, the rain is beneficial, so it’s not a bad thing all together. Anyway, this mini sorta tropical low pressure area will be gone before we know it, exiting via the Gulf of Maine by early Wednesday. A second mini low will have to be watched as it may take a similar track or a track slightly further east later Thursday, otherwise, the coming several days will feature a typical August pattern as the new month gets underway, warm temperatures, increased humidity, and a few episodes of showers and thunderstorms. The most likely days for showers/storms will be Wednesday, Thursday, and Monday. Friday and the weekend will likely be rain-free in just about all locations.
