Thursday Forecast


DAYS 1-5 (AUGUST 23-27)
A final trough moving through the area keeps clouds and perhaps results in a brief shower this morning but then you can expect more sunshine and comfortable air today. High pressure then takes control of the weather for several days which start out quite comfortable with a warming trend, then an eventual return to higher humidity. Forecast details…
TODAY: Lots of clouds and a possible brief shower until mid morning then increasing sunshine. Highs 75-82. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 48-53 interior valleys, 54-60 elsewhere. Wind light NW to N.
FRIDAY: Sunny. Highs 76-84, coolest coast. Wind light variable with sea breezes.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 50-56 interior areas with coolest in the valleys to 56-62 elsewhere with mildest in urban areas. Wind light variable to SW.
SATURDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 78-86, coolest South Coast. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Slightly more humid. Lows from the upper 50s to middle 60s. Highs in the 80s, some 70s Cape Cod and immediate shores.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Humid. Lows in the 60s. Highs from the lower 80s to lower 90s, coolest South Coast.

High pressure aloft will be in control with more heat during much of this period, including some higher humidity as well. A couple disturbances passing north of the region will be close enough to trigger shower and thunderstorm chances from time to time. At this time of year we also have to keep an eye on sea breeze boundaries for possible storm development focus regions too.

DAYS 11-15 (SEPTEMBER 2-6)
General pattern remains the same but will have to watch for a quick cooler interlude of high pressure moving across Canada noses southward far enough. That may also mean we’ll be close to a surface boundary and may experience a higher risk of some shower and thunderstorm activity at times.

    Thank you, TK.

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! 😀

    I just wish that Canada would become a more permanent guest.

    I heard on the radio this morning that the Old Farmer’s Almanac is calling for less snow and mild temps for the upcoming winter.

    • Woods Hill Weather says:

      Exactly the opposite of the annual cold/snowy forecast from “The Farmer’s Almanac” (different publication).

  6. JpDave says:

    Good morning and thank you TK.

    Dew point down to 53 at my House and to repeat from above:


  7. Marjie says:

    Thanks, TK. Hope you are feeling better.

    Sun just came out and – air is refreshingly delightful! Don’t know if that’s grammatically correct – in any case, it’s beautiful out!

  8. JpDave says:

    Regarding the discussion of yesterday and short waves etc.

    I located this link, although it is still somewhat confusing discerning
    long waves and short waves.

    and this

    Thank you, TK. A wonderful day to have the windows wide open.

    Thanks TK
    As far as the Old Farmers’ Almanac prediction of mild and wet winter Bucket Load of Salt as well as with the Farmers’ Almanac.
    Will see if this pans out. Meteorologist John Homenuk posted a tweet from Dr. Amy Butler who is an atmospheric scientist at CIRES/NOAA ESRL.
    We are currently in a descending westerly phase of the QBO, with easterlies below 20 mb. If easterlies persist at 50 hPa by late October, that could be one factor pushing the #polarvortex to be weaker in early winter.

    • JpDave says:

      Well, you know my feeling on the OFA….
      You can take that and flush it down the toilet as it is totally and completely
      useless. 😀

  11. JimmyJames says:

    Even the tweet I posted about the factors that could lead to a weakening of the polar vortex at the beginning of winter I still take with a grain of salt.

  12. BlackstoneWx says:

    Hopefully this is the last day of this junk. I took this week as a vacation week. What a crap week so far.

  13. JpDave says:

    Has anyone seen the movie “Remember” starring Christopher Plumber and
    Martin Landau?

    OMG, what a movie. My wife and I watched it last night on Netflix.

    Powerful, riveting movie, not for the faint of heart. Some may find it disturbing, but
    it tells an important story. I do not believe it is a true or based on truth, but
    none-the-less fantastic!!!

    • vicki says:

      I have not. I will plan to watch, however. I enjoy both Plumber and Landau. Thank you.

      Meanwhile, it sure has turned into a glorious day in these parts.

  14. Woods Hill Weather says:

    What I will say about TOFA vs. TFA weather forecasts, at least TOFA tries to use some actual meteorology that is somewhat applicable, other than leaving out a bunch of factors that can’t really be known until we get into the autumn. But that’s better than what we get from TFA, which obviously has the same forecast year after year.

    TFA’s weather is a giant pile of doo-doo.
    TOFA’s weather is more like a few turds.

    But when it comes down to it, neither are of any practical use.

    • JpDave says:

      Right, they’re both full of SHIT.

      • Woods Hill Weather says:

        They do have great other info and entertaining articles, especially TOFA which I prefer.

        • JpDave says:

          Okie dokie. I prefer not to purchase. I like REAL info. 😀

          • Woods Hill Weather says:

            Oh I understand that. Pretty much all of the astronomical and agricultural info you can get in it is available online. However I’m a bit of a collector. I have a copy of TOFA every year back to 1972.

            • JpDave says:

              Sounds great. I don’t really collect, except
              that the house seems to get filled up
              with junk. 😀

  15. Tom says:

    Outside again after an institute on Social-Emotional Learning, which was really good.

    Anyhow, for me, today breaks somewhere into my top 5 weather days this summer.

    Mild, warm in the sun, nice breeze and so comfortably dry.

  16. Philip says:

    TK – Is TOFA’s forecast close to your thinking with regard to El Niño?

  17. WxWatcher says:

    Hurricane Lane passed almost directly over a NOAA buoy a few hours ago. The result was a rather spectacular set of meteorological observations, the likes of which we rarely see. You can see the winds crank up with gusts over 100mph (which is probably too low given some of the limitations of the buoy equipment). The pressure plummets as the center approaches, and the wind goes to near calm as well as the eye moves overhead. It was also being tossed around in 30 foot seas at the time. Quite a graph:

  18. North says:

    Pretty awesome observation.

  19. Vicki says:

    55 in Sutton. Loverly

  20. Tom says:

    Guessing by the sunrise and the appearance of the sky that there is smoke, perhaps plenty of it, overhead. We’ll see in the visible satellite in an hour or 2.
