Raw Sunday Leads to a Steamy Monday

Yesterday was one of those days that felt like was in the wrong month. Highs yesterday were in the low to mid 90's from Hartford to Boston to Concord, NH and Bangor, ME. It was pretty unbelievable. Now today, north of the stalled frontal boundry, temperatures have remained in the upper 50's to low 60's all afternoon with a raw NE wind. South of the front, positioned near the Mass Pike, temperatures are in the upper 70's and low 80's with sticky conditions. This front will go back north overnight and lows will stay in the 60's overnight here in SNE, even rise a couple degrees in places like Lawrence, MA where temperatures this afternoon have been in the 59-60 degree range.

Tomorrow will be much warmer with morning showers and increased humidity. Tropical Storm Gabrielle, pretty much a dud of a storm will pass well SE of Nantucket with max winds of 45 mph. It may cause a little build up of the seas, but that would be about it. A more beneficial rain could be in the cards for Tuesday afternoon as a little ripple of low pressure could enhance rainfall along a stalling frontal boundry, giving SNE a nice soaking rain that we so desperately need. We'll watch that. It cools and dries off later in the week with mostly sunny skies and highs pretty much in the lower 70's, seasonable levels. Saturday brings another chance of PM showers, but it now looks like most will wait until overnight Saturday and early Sunday. Ahead of the cold front, temperatures should shoot well into the 70's to perhaps 80 degrees in parts of SW southern New England with increased humidity before we really cool off for Sunday and early next week. Highs should get down into the 60's by this time with lows really cooling off.

The Pats are looking good this year...
