My headline portrays my feelings towards this forecast. Its ridiculous. We are fast approaching October and we are dealing with weather like this. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining, but, come on, its not supposed to be sunny and in the 90's during the last week of September here in southern New England. Tomorrow will be the last day of dry heat and then we will get very humid to oppressive humidity by Tuesday and Wednesday with highs getting up into the lower to mid 90's regionwide. We could be easily breaking records around here on Tuesday, as the record high for that date in Boston is a meager 89 degrees, I believe. Boston will likely break that by 1-3 degrees, shattering the old record. I am not sure what the record is for Wednesday, but with highs in the mid 90's, we'd be close to a record high in mid July, let alone late September. Showers move into the picture for an unsettled second half of the week, but they do not look as potent as they did a few days ago, and do not look to cool us dramatically, into the low 60's as I thought before. Once they clear, we warm up again heading into next weekend with highs in the mid 70's.
One thing to note is the Tuesday morning and Wednesday morning low temperatures. Mid 60's for a region average on Tuesday and then 70 on Wednesday morning. A few days last week, Boston didn't even get out of the low 60's for a high! Boston overnight Tuesday and early Wednesday morning will probably "bottom out" around 72 degrees! It will surely feel like summer has returned to the city. Maybe then, the Red Sox will start playing ball like they did during the dog days. Thats not too much to ask, IMO.
