Can Somebody Say Drought?

There is no weather coming our way for the foreseeable future. Not even the chance of rain the next 6-8 days. The next chance of seeing any type of rain looks to come by Wednesday of next week. The only story that will be making headlines will be the temperatures. From one extreme to another. Today, the cold spot in SNE was Norwood, of course, as they got to a frosty low of 30 degrees this morning. Not far behind was the normally second cold spot, Bedford, coming in with a low of 33 degrees. Highs today stayed generally in the 60's, with the exception of Taunton, coming in with an afternoon high of 70 degrees, after a morning low of 36 degrees. Tomorrow temperatures as a whole will be a few degrees warmer in the morning and the afternoon. Norwood and Bedford will likely drop to between 34-37 degrees, while the rest hover around 40. Boston will likely be around 50, after a morning low of 48 this morning. The heat moves in on Thursday on a SW wind. Highs will likely be in the low to mid 80's, with low humidity. A cold front will move through the area from west to east Thursday night and let in a cooler, but still nice airmass for Friday, with temperatures slightly above normal, mainly in the mid 70's. The heat is right back on for Saturday as highs will be soaring well into the mid to perhaps upper 80's in a few spots. Overnight lows will likely stay around 60 in the suburbs to mid and upper 60's in urban areas. That will really feel like summer all over again on the last official day of summer.

We welcome in fall at 5:51AM on Sunday morning with a cooler airmass, with morning lows in the 40's in the suburbs and 50's, Boston. The cooler airmass stays until Monday and then I think we are off to the races again as temperatures soar back into the 80's. Enjoy this perfect stretch of weather. It can't last forever.
