Warming up

Dry through Friday

SUNSHINE

After a few late night showers and thunderstorms, it’s back to sun Thursday with highs in the 80s again. Humidity will remain tolerable. Northwest winds will be light, so sea breezes will develop for the immediate coast, keeping highs in the 70s there.

THE HEAT IS ON

We’ll be on a Weather Alert Friday for extreme heat. Brace for highs in the low and mid 90s away from the immediate coast. In fact, it looks like the hottest day of the year so far! The South Coast, Cape Cod, Vineyard and Nantucket will be the “cooler” spots with afternoon readings in the 80s. Humidity will rise, but the weather will stay dry.

UNSETTLED START TO THE WEEKEND

A front will slowly cross the region Saturday with showers. The morning, afternoon, and evening all have the chance for that on and off rain with embedded downpours and thunderstorms. It will not rain all day, but the threat is there.

The rest of the weekend looks great with increasing sunshine Sunday and bright conditions for the 4th of July.
