Monday Forecast Update

7:25AM

DAYS 1-5 (AUGUST 31-SEPTEMBER 4)…
A broad ridge of high pressure dominates the eastern US with New England in the northern part of this ridge during the work week. There will be high pressure areas at the surface both to our south and our north. The boundary between these will waver around and find its way south of the region on Tuesday and again about Friday, with those 2 days being relatively cooler than the other days, which will feature some late Summer heat. We’ll have to watch for a few thunderstorms later Thursday as the boundary approaches from the north for the second pass.
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs from near 80 immediate shore to around 90 elsewhere. Wind W up to 10 MPH except for some light sea breezes near the coast.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 60s. Wind light variable.
TUESDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs upper 70s immediate coast, 80s interior. Wind light N to NE.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 60s. Highs 80-86 coast, 86-93 interior. Wind light W with sea breezes.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy. Isolated showers/thunderstorms possible northern areas late day or early night. Lows in the 60s. Highs 82-93, coolest Cape Cod.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 60s. Highs 75-80 Cape Cod and immediate coast, 80s elsewhere.

DAYS 6-10 (SEPTEMBER 5-9)…
Labor Day Weekend September 5-7 looks very warm and rain-free at this time. Slow-moving cold front may bring clouds and some wet weather later on September 8 into September 9, depending on its timing.

DAYS 11-15 (SEPTEMBER 10-14)…
Drier and a little cooler early in the period, followed by a warming trend again. A few showers by late in the period.

Sunday Forecast Update

8:15AM

DAYS 1-5 (AUGUST 30-SEPTEMBER 3)…
Essentially no changes from yesterday other than to add the slight risk of a shower today as a disturbance passes, and remove the thunderstorm threat from late Monday.
TODAY: Partly sunny. Slight chance of a passing shower. Highs 79-87, coolest immediate coast. Wind SW up to 10 MPH but coastal sea breezes.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 60s. Wind light SW.
MONDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs 84-93, coolest coast. Wind SW to W 5-15 MPH but some coastal sea breezes.
TUESDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 60s. Highs 82-91, coolest coast.
WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 60s. Highs 83-92, coolest coast.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy. Slight risk of isolated thunderstorms late-day or night. Lows in the 60s. Highs 83-92, coolest coast.

DAYS 6-10 (SEPTEMBER 4-8)…
Dry September 4-6. Slight risk of showers September 7-8. Temperatures above normal.

DAYS 11-15 (SEPTEMBER 9-13)…
A continuation of mainly above normal temperatures and below normal rainfall.

Saturday Forecast Update

8:15AM

DAYS 1-5 (AUGUST 29-SEPTEMBER 2)…
As August bows out and September takes the stage, some of the best weather of the Summer arrives, especially if you like late Summer heat. Though humidity will be higher on some days than others, I’m not looking for stretches of oppressive humidity. Also, temperatures each day will be determined by wind direction especially near the coast. A weak disturbance passing by will bring a little more cloudiness at times on Sunday than other days. A very weak front from the north later Monday should not cause any more than an isolated thunderstorm.
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 76-84, coolest coastal areas. Wind light S with coastal sea breezes.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 58-64, coolest interior valleys. Wind light SE to S.
SUNDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 79-87, coolest immediate coast. Wind SW up to 10 MPH but coastal sea breezes.
MONDAY: Partly cloudy. Slight chance of an isolated thunderstorm mainly southern NH or northern MA late. Lows in the 60s. Highs 84-93, coolest coast.
TUESDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 60s. Highs 82-91, coolest coast.
WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 60s. Highs 83-92, coolest coast.

DAYS 6-10 (SEPTEMBER 3-7)…
A few thunderstorms possible late on September 3 and again late on September 7 otherwise dry weather. Temperatures above to much above normal.

DAYS 11-15 (SEPTEMBER 8-12)…
A continuation of mainly above normal temperatures and below normal rainfall.

Friday Forecast Update

1:58AM

DAYS 1-5 (AUGUST 28-SEPTEMBER 1)…
High pressure will dominate through Monday with southern New England on the dry air side of the high through Saturday, then returning humidity follows on Sunday and Monday as the high slips off to the east. A weak disturbance from the west may produce more cloudiness and perhaps a few showers Tuesday.
TODAY: Sunny to partly cloudy. Highs 75-82, coolest coast. Wind light NW to N with sea breezes.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 55-62, coolest interior areas. Wind light variable.

High pressure dominates the entire period with fair weather, moderate to high humidity, and very warm to hot air.

DAYS 11-15 (SEPTEMBER 7-11)…
Disturbance may bring clouds and showers early in the period otherwise a continuation of mainly rain-free and very warm weather through mid period with a possible cooler interlude by late in the period.

Fair and hot September 6. Episodes of showers and thunderstorms September 7-10 with temperatures remaining mostly above normal.

Wednesday Forecast Update

7:43AM

DAYS 1-5…
A transition day today. A weak cold front still sitting over eastern MA, southeastern NH, and RI, moving slowly to the east will be offshore later but still close enough to maybe pop a shower in a few locations this morning with a slightly greater chance across Cape Cod of activity lingering through midday. Otherwise it’s a slow clearing and drying trend but still warm despite the passage of a cold front. Ok, so why is it still called a cold front? It is, by definition, but really it’s just an air mass change. It’s not cold behind the front at all. We’ll just be introduced to a new air mass from the west that is drier than the one currently over the region. And speaking of that new air mass, it will bring some very nice weather Thursday through Saturday before humidity returns on Sunday as high pressure slips offshore and opens the door to air from the south.
TODAY: Lots of clouds southeastern NH and eastern MA with isolated showers this morning and a chance of showers and thunderstorms Cape Cod through midday with more sun and patchy clouds in other locations. Partly cloudy to mostly sunny this afternoon. Highs 78-85. Wind variable up to 10 MPH.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 58-65. Wind W up to 10 MPH.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs 77-84. Wind W up to 15 MPH.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows 56-63. Highs 75-82.
SATURDAY: Partly cloudy. Lows 56-63. Highs 78-85.
SUNDAY: Partly cloudy. More humid. Lows 58-65. Highs 80-87.

DAYS 6-10 (AUGUST 31-SEPTEMER 4)…
Higher humidity with sun and clouds with warm temperatures August 31. A disturbance will bring cloudiness and a risk of showers with high humidity September 1. High pressure ridge builds into the region with fair weather, moderate to high humidity, and warmer to hotter air September 2-4.

DAYS 11-15 (SEPTEMBER 5-9)…
At least part of Labor Day Weekend September 5-7 may be fair and hot as high pressure dominates. Looking for a transition with showers sometime September 7-9, not as hot but possibly quite humid as high pressure tries to hold on but battles with a jet stream and disturbance just to the north.

Tuesday Forecast Update

7:39AM

DAYS 1-5…
Slow moving cold front touches off showers and thunderstorms today and this evening as it moves west to east across the region, taking until the early hours of Wednesday to clear the coast. The greatest support for showers and thunderstorms sits over central to interior northeastern MA and southwestern to south central NH and by the time this axis shifts southeastward it will be early tonight. So it’s areas to the west and north of Boston that stand the greatest chance of the most significant weather today but all areas should keep an eye out, in case. Drier air arrives at midweek and lasts through the end of the week with a stretch of great late Summer weather!
TODAY: Variably cloudy. Scattered showers/thunderstorms, most numerous to the west and north of Boston. Highs 77-85. Wind SW 5-15 MPH but gusty and variable around any storms.
TONIGHT: Variably cloudy. Scattered showers/thunderstorms through evening, ending overnight. Lows 60-67. Wind variable to W 5-15 MPH but gusty around any storms.
WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs 78-85. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY: Fair weather. Lows 55-65. Highs 75-85.

DAYS 6-10 (AUGUST 30-SEPTEMBER 3)…
Risk of showers about the middle of the period otherwise mostly dry with temperatures warming to above normal.

DAYS 11-15 (SEPTEMBER 4-8)…
Rainfall below normal. Temperatures above normal.

Sunday Forecast Update

8:15AM

DAYS 1-5…
Continuing to feel impact from broad offshore low pressure and an old frontal boundary nearby. As the low shifts northward through Monday it will push the boundary westward across the region and will trigger some showers, but not a widespread rain. Still watching for a stronger cold front from the west driven by a trough and surface low moving into the Great Lakes. This front will cross the region by late Tuesday night and will bring a more significant threat for showers and thunderstorms, though timing remains uncertain and will influence the impact of the activity with the front. Fine-tuning to come. Drier air arrives by midweek as surface low pressure moves into eastern Canada and upper level low pressure crosses the northeastern US. This set-up will mean diurnal cloud development so don’t look for total sunshine Wednesday and Thursday. It will still be quite nice, however.
TODAY: Overcast with areas of fog and drizzle through the morning then mostly cloudy through afternoon. Scattered showers and a few locally heavier downpours possible. Humid. Highs 70 coast to 80 well inland. Wind NE 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Patchy fog. Chance of showers. Humid. Lows in the 60s. Wind light NE to E.
MONDAY: Mostly cloudy to partly sunny. Areas of fog early. Scattered showers mainly southwestern NH, central MA, and western RI. Humid. Highs 70s coast, lower 80s well inland. Wind light E to SE.
TUESDAY: Variably cloudy. Showers possible eastern areas early. Showers/thunderstorms likely from west to east late day or night. Humid. Lows in the 60s. Highs middle 70s South Coast to lower 80s elsewhere.
WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy. Lowering humidity. Lows in the 60s. Highs upper 70s to middle 80s.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy. Lows upper 50s to middle 60s. Highs middle 70s to lower 80s.

DAYS 6-10 (AUGUST 28-SEPTEMBER 1)…
Dry August 28-29. Isolated showers August 30. Potential unsettled weather August 31 and/or September 1 – watch a front from the west and/or tropical moisture from the south. Temperatures near to above normal.

DAYS 11-15 (SEPTEMBER 2-6)…
Above normal temperatures and below normal precipitation expected in the early days of September.

Saturday Forecast Update

9:58AM

DAYS 1-5…
For a weak boundary it sure will hang around a while. I’m talking about the front that moved in yesterday and parked itself over southeastern New England. Now this boundary will allow itself to be pushed around by a couple of weather systems, the first being broad low pressure centered well southeast of New England, which will move a little closer through early Monday before heading back out to sea. This system may acquire tropical characteristics but will not be close enough to cause any real impact other than an east to northeast air flow. It will also serve to push the boundary over southeastern areas back to the west between today and Monday, shifting the most likely area for showers westward with time. But by Monday night and early Tuesday, a low pressure trough approaching from the west will push this boundary back to the east and shift the axis of shower threat back across the region from west to east. This will also allow a shot of warm and humid air to arrive Tuesday to replace the cooler marine area now getting established because of the offshore low. And then a final cold front will finally sweep everything offshore by early Wednesday, but this may not happen without another round of showers as well as thunderstorms later Tuesday or Tuesday night, depending on the timing of the front. Though there will still be upper level low pressure over the region Wednesday, high pressure will start building in at the surface from the west and drier air will overtake the area. But with the trough upstairs we’ll probably have some cloud development as well as sunshine.
TODAY: Mostly cloudy. Occasional showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms mainly eastern MA, southeastern NH, and RI. Highs from near 70 coast to near 80 interior. Wind NE 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Chance of showers. Areas of fog. Lows in the 60s. Wind light NE.
SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy. Occasional showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms shifting slowly westward across the region. Highs in the 70s. Wind NE 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Mostly cloudy. Chance of showers during the day mainly RI and interior eastern MA and southern NH. Showers shift back to the east at night. Lows in the 60s. Highs in the 70s.
TUESDAY: Partly sunny. Risk of showers early eastern areas. Risk of showers/thunderstorms west to east across the region late day or night. Lows in the 60s. Highs in the 80s.
WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 60s. Highs upper 70s to middle 80s.

DAYS 6-10 (AUGUST 27-31)…
Fair weather August 27. A couple passing disturbances may bring a few episodes of showers and thunderstorms August 28-31. Temperatures near to above normal during the period.

DAYS 11-15 (SEPTEMBER 1-5)…
High pressure ridge becomes more dominant. Temperatures above normal. Rainfall below normal.
