    A front from Canada is stirring up the atmosphere in New England a bit on Wednesday.

    Ahead of the front we have somewhat more humid air with the temperature in the 80s and wind from the south west to gusting past 25 mph. Along the front we have scattered showers and a thunderstorm, possibly a few isolated damaging wind gusts.

    Behind the front in western and northern New England, we have cooler and less humid air, with wind from the northwest gusting past 25 mph temperatures in the 70s.

    Any rain near the Bruce Springsteen concert in Foxboro will be brief and done by 7 PM.

    The front moves off the coast this evening leaving dry and cooler weather overnight and for tomorrow.

    High pressure from Canada brings us a mix of sun and clouds for tomorrow and a high temperature in the 60s to low 70s.

    Friday looks quite nice with sunshine and highs in the 70s.

    We become a bit more breezy on Saturday with an increasing clouds, and a late day shower, high temperature near 80°.

    The next front is here Saturday night and Sunday with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms.

    Last night, tropical storm Julia formed on the coast of Georgia.

    Julia brings the southeastern United States some flooding rains, but does not look like it will make it north in our direction.

    We get help with our Sunday front though, with scattered rainfall amounts of 1 inch or more possible, perhaps helping out our drought situation a bit.
