Humidity will drop a bit today, leading to a single day of relief! Local sea breezes will also keep the coastline cooler than yesterday with low to mid 80s expected in Boston and the beaches. Outside of I-95 highs will reach the mid to upper 80s, perhaps a few 90 degree readings too. Enjoy the mostly sunny skies.
Clouds and humidity will increase tonight. Although a spot shower is possible Wednesday morning, most storms will develop in the afternoon. A warm front will carry in muggy, warm air and help trigger downpours, lightning and gusty winds through the second half of the day. Some of these storms may be strong to severe. I expect some PM commute slowdowns as a result.
We could see a lull Thursday morning, but the risk for scattered storms will continue until a cold front comes through at night. The air will be hot, humid and unsettled much of the day. Highs will probably come close to 90 degrees.
LATE WEEK TURNAROUND
Humidity will drop Friday with some lingering clouds. You'll see plenty of sun this weekend with comfortable highs in the 70s.
