What a finish to the week as highs topped off in the upper 70s and humidity was as low as it gets in mid June with dew points falling into the 30s!

With such a low humidity air mass in place, evening temps cool quickly, allowing for a September-like feel to the air overnight with mid 40s in the cooler suburbs to the upper 50s in Boston.  You may need to throw some extra logs on the fire pit if you're hanging out more than a couple hours after sunset.

As high pressure continues to build in from our north, low humidity and sunshine prevail through the weekend as the next couple days feature temps near 80 inland and in the lower 70s at the coast.  Okay, maybe a bit cool for the beach, but with lots of sunshine, the sand will be warm and the sunscreen a must.  Heading to the ball field, golf course, wedding or graduation party this weekend?  Two big thumbs up on the weather for that.

While most of us have no complaints, the garden may argue otherwise.  Those tomato, pepper, and many other plants will start wilting if you don't get some water on them this weekend and early next week. 

Humidity increases a bit early next week, and quite a bit by Wednesday as temps warm back into the middle 80s.   There's a slight risk of a few thunderstorms scattered about Wednesday late afternoon/night, but don't count on all towns getting hit.  Thursday and Friday look mainly dry again. 

Enjoy!
