No 90 yet in Boston. Here's a list of previous year's first 90 degree days.
Frizz factors dropping down the next several days as a low humidity air mass pushes in.
A bit warm and muggy, huh? With temps in the mid to upper 80s across the area and dew points around 60, it was one of the warmest and muggiest day's we've had thus far this year. The record high in Boston for the date is 94, so we were well off that.
We didn't even reach 90 in Boston, and it looks like another week or more goes by before we would take another run for it as cooler weather prevails. Of course, this time of year, cooler weather often means a refreshing air mass, and that's what we'll see. The last time we toppled the 90 degree mark was when Logan Airport put up a 97 on September 11th of last year.
As a front stalls just to our south tonight, and a wave of low pressure rides along it, I do expect more clouds overnight and early tomorrow. Perhaps a shower or two sneaks into southern Worcester County or Southeastern Mass during this time frame, but the overall trend is to stay mainly dry. Clouds tend to push farther south during Thursday, allowing for a return of mostly sunny skies from north to south during the afternoon as high pressure noses in. Highs Thursday reach the lower 80s.
That high is slow to release it's grip over New England as the pattern stagnates, which is good news this go around as from Thursday afternoon on, it's cruise control into the weekend.
Friday, into the weekend, seasonable temps (upper 70s), low humidity, and a good deal of sunshine prevail. Beach temps hold in the low to mid 70s with sea breezes, while inland locations near 80. At some point next week, a few showers and storms rumble back in. Right now, that won't be until Tuesday or Wednesday, and at this point, I'm favoring more Wednesday than Tuesday.
Enjoy the nice stretch of weather ahead! @clamberton7 - twitter
