The Heat is On!
We are really starting to heat up this Saturday morning. The sun is shining and the temperatures are quickly rebounding from the low 60's of this morning. We will see them continue to come over 80 degrees by midday and then we will flirt with 90 by later this afternoon. The only thing that could stop many from surpassing 90 today would be building clouds and the threat of a few afternoon thunderstorms developing, mainly north of the Pike and along the Pike. A few of these storms may be severe, but the main threat will just be heavy rainfall and strong gusty winds. Not everyone will see these storms, so don't go canceling outdoor plans, but just keep an eye to the western sky. Look out for some darkening clouds. Tomorrow will be a much better day with highs in the low 90's and no threat of thunderstorms. The humidity will be up to oppressive levels, so that high of 91 will feel more like 97 tomorrow in Boston. Our big hot day will peak on Monday as highs will be in the mid and upper 90's. Tuesday will be one more day of hot 90 degree weather before cooling thunderstorms bring the cooler weather in for later in the week. Highs on Wednesday will cool into the low 80's before we further drop into the 70's by the end of the week and high pressure will be moving overhead to allow for cooling sea breeze. Boston and along the coast will likely stay in the low 70's for both Thursday and Friday.
