Classic Summer Weather in New England

TUESDAY- You don't get more of a summery looking forecast here in SNE. We are quickly coming upon the dog days of summer and the next several will feel every bit of the mid summer feel you can get. The humidity is on the way up, up, up. We have been enjoying the past couple of days with dewpoints in the upper 50's to low 60's. That will soon be a thing of the past because we will notice an increase in the humidity tomorrow with dewpoints getting back into that 'sticky' range, into the mid 60's. The Cape by days end will likely see dewpoints getting to around 70 degrees. That is downright tropical and makes you sweat nearly as soon as you head out the door. The heat really gets turned on Thursday and then especially Friday and Saturday as temperatures will soar over 90 degrees.

Thursday will likely be around 90 degrees, but be just shy of 90 in Boston, Logan Airport proper. This will likely keep this from going down in the record books as an official heatwave because Sunday could be another day where the coast will only get to 86-89 degrees. But, inland locations will likely see official heatwaves. Places like Bedford, Nashua, Norwood, and Taunton will likely see at least a three day stretch of 90+ this week.

We really cool things off on Monday with highs in the 70's and the threat of some scattered showers, but that is so far out into the future, we won't be worrying about that quite yet. The tropics remain active, but not overly so. The same entities remain in place that we talked about yesterday, but will very little change. Bertha is still a TS, but could regain hurricane strength tomorrow and Invest 94 is still very haggard and will likely not develop into anything in the near future. Other than that, we are all quiet, which is a good thing, IMO.
