After a relatively mild and foggy start, we will get close to 80 degrees in most towns and cities this afternoon as sunshine takes over. A southerly breeze will add in a touch more humidity than yesterday, but still comfortable overall for any outdoor sports, cook-outs, or apple picking you may have planned. Best foliage this weekend will be in the Green Mountains of Vermont.
Sunday will be even warmer & more humid as a stronger south breeze takes over. Expect highs around 80, although clouds may be more stubborn to break. We could see a spot shower develop, but our better chance for these hit or miss showers holds off until overnight.
RAIN RELIEF NEEDED
The drought monitor update issued Thursday has more than half of Massachusetts in at least a “severe” drought and now 10% in an “extreme” drought. Similarly, an extreme drought was reported for the first time this season in NH. We have a rainfall deficit of 6-12″ in southern New England for the year.
The weather pattern will turn unsettled Monday through Thursday next week with a few rounds of showers.
The tropics continue to stay quiet for now.
