Good Thursday All!
It has been feeling more like summer the last couple of days! Highs yesterday were in the low and mid 80s. Temperatures will now trend downward again for the rest of this week. We will also have to introduce more clouds and a few showers as a disturbance aloft moves over New England today and tomorrow. Actually, a few showers arrived this morning! While today won't be completely cloudy, there should be enough clouds to hold daytime highs to the 70s. A few more showers are likely today, but by far most of the day will be dry.
Tomorrow should be cloudier with perhaps a better chance for showers and some drizzle. Plus, a cool east to northeasterly flow will develop as high pressure begins to build southward from Eastern Canada. Daytime highs tomorrow may not be too far away from the 70 degree mark!
The atmosphere will dry out over the weekend as high pressure continues to build southward across New England. Thus, weather conditions will improve! Saturday may start out cloudy with a few lingering showers or even some drizzle. However, skies should become partly sunny during the afternoon and temperatures should peak in the low and mid 70s. By Sunday, we'll enjoy brighter skies and slightly warmer weather. Temperatures should reach the upper 70s Sunday afternoon.
High pressure will be in no hurry to leave next week. That means we'll enjoy more nice weather Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. However, there will be a noticeable warming trend and by the middle or end of next week temperatures could reach 90 degrees. That would be a first for this month. The highest temperature so far was 89 degrees on August 5th. The last time we had a day in the 90s (90 or higher) was all the way back on July 23rd when the high was 93 degrees at Bradley International.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
