Another comfortable day with low humidity and plentiful sunshine, though today will be a little bit warmer courtesy of a southerly flow. Temperatures are expected to rise into the mid and upper 80s in several spots of New England.
Tonight, the air mass won’t be as crisp as this morning and will start to see a few high clouds increasing over northern locations. Lows will drop into the 50s and 60s.
We start the work week with a mostly sunny sky once again but this time the humidity begins to build as well as the temperatures, highs will be in the upper 80s to low 90s.
Come Tuesday, that is when we get our next chance for a pop-up shower or storm as a cold front approaches New England- the action will begin further north over Vermont and New Hampshire and then by Wednesday night, pop up showers are possible near Boston. Highs on Tuesday will remain quite hot in the 90s and it will also be muggy. Behind that front, temperatures drop once again closer to average.
It is that time of the year, when the Atlantic Ocean gets active and begins to brew cyclones. Currently, we are tracking two storms- a stationary Tropical storm Chris spinning off the coast of the Carolinas, it will meander that area for a couple of days but by Wednesday it moves north east between New England and Bermuda. We’re not expecting a direct hit from the cyclone, which is forecast to intensify into a category 1 hurricane by mid-week, but the threat for rip currents will increase and there is even the chance for some coastal erosion. The other storm, Beryl, is moving towards the Lesser Antilles as a tropical storm and it will encounter a hostile environment as it approaches the islands which will limit the potential for intensification.
