Buggy and muggy out there today with dew points around 70! A tropical air mass from Alberto remains overhead with occasional rain that will continue into the evening and overnight. A cold front will approach through Saturday morning, bringing a few organized showers through overnight. Temperatures hover in the middle to upper 60s with some fog.
Saturday is overall looking drier than it did earlier in the week. We may still see an isolated shower or two pop up during the day, but it’s not looking too dreary. We begin the day cloudy and muggy with high humidity still in place, however behind a cold front, a northerly breeze will begin drying things out. Dew points will fall from north to south and skies will partially clear out in the same fashion later in the day. High temps should still make it into the upper 70s and low 80s.
We have a cool, dry night on the way Saturday into Sunday with temperatures falling into the lower to middle 50s with a few clouds. Sunday is also looking a bit nicer with more sunshine on tap as high pressure dominates well to our north. Expect some high clouds with temperatures reaching lower to middle 70s in western Mass. It will be a much cooler day out toward the Cape and Islands.
A pattern shift is on the way with a developing trough and upper low headed from the Great Lakes to the Northeast. As a block sets up, this pattern gets “stuck” and will linger much of the week. We are coolest Monday with highs in the 50s likely along with periods of rain. We will see a few disturbances roll around the upper low through Wednesday with showers, but the timing is tricky-so expect wet weather through midweek. Thursday and Friday look drier with more breaks of sun and therefore, milder temps.
