Summery Unofficial End to Summer
As we head into the holiday weekend, summer is showing no signs of quit as a stuffy, tropical air mass arrives.
With clear skies, a diminish breeze and high pressure overhead, we can expect a crisp, cool night tonight. Temperatures will dip into the 40s in most spots by dawn followed by another beautiful day tomorrow. Tomorrow will feature 100% of the possible sunshine along with sunny, dry conditions. High temperatures will stay mainly in the 70s and with dew points in the 40s and lower 50s, it will feel a bit like early fall.
We’ll likely hang onto one more comfortable day on Saturday before a warm front lifts through late in the day, causing some clouds to mix with the sunshine. Highs on Saturday will reach into the lower 80s. It will be a fine day for all outdoor plans.
Behind the front a southwesterly flow will take over, which will help bring a more “summer-like” feel into the area for both Sunday and Labor Day. Temperatures will reach well into the 80s along with dew point up into the 60s to lower 70s. With warmer, more humid conditions and a slow moving cold front creeping across New England we can expect a couple of showers and storms starting Sunday afternoon lasting into the evening with another round of showers possible Monday afternoon into the early evening hours.
