Sorry I haven't been able to post in a while, but I'm back and we got that sizzling week that I forecasted some 10 days ago. Maybe it didn't get to that 90 degree mark in Boston or Providence, but it did hit 90 this week in Concord, NH and many of Boston and Providence's suburbs reported temperatures near 88-89 degrees on both Wednesday and Thursday. So, I don't think it was an absurd forecast that some called me out on. Numbers may have been a little too high, but were pretty much in line with what we actually saw in the 6 day period.
That said, another awesome cool Sunday is on tap for tomorrow. Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there as well. It will be gorgeous with highs in the lower 60's with a light NE breeze keeping the coast crisp with highs in the upper 50's with crystal clear skies. Monday will warm up a tad into the lower 70's with abundant sunshine, but Tuesday will be this week's hottest day with temperatures easily topping 80 degrees in many locals and if the clouds don't fill in until later in the afternoon, temperatures could easily top out in the mid to upper 80's. It will also be very humid and this will spark off some heavy showers and thunderstorms, similar to what we saw yesterday around noontime in Boston. However, a ripple of low pressure may develop along the stalling front and give us a cool steady rain on Wednesday that could actually be a beneficial soaking that we most desperately need believe it or not. We'll have to watch this possibility.
We clear out slowly and by the end of next week, we will be back into the sunshine with seasonable mid-late May temperatures, in the 70's!
