For Tonight: Clear skies are expected tonight with low temperatures between 65 and 70 Degrees. Winds will be Southwest at 5 to 10 mph.


Monday: We are looking at a three day stretch of some really hot and humid weather. I do have good news though – It appears that the heat and humidity will break for a little bit starting on Thursday and continuing through next weekend.


Monday looks hot and humid under partly sunny skies. High temperatures will be between 90 and 95 Degrees. Heat index readings by Monday afternoon will be near 100 Degrees.


It does look like a piece of atmospheric energy will track across the region during the afternoon and will run into a quite unstable environment leading to scattered thunderstorms to be a threat during the mid and late afternoon hours across the entire area. While it looks like we’ll definitely have the moisture and energy to produce a couple of strong to severe thunderstorms, it appears that the amount of wind shear will be limited and thus I think the overall threat for strong to severe thunderstorms is low. That said, a thunderstorm or two could be on the strong to severe side producing some gusty winds or hail up to the size of quarters. Something to keep an eye on.


Tuesday & Wednesday: Very hot and very humid weather is expected on both Tuesday and Wednesday.


Overall though, Tuesday looks to be the worse day in terms of the combination of heat and humidity. Skies on Tuesday will be partly sunny with high temperatures around 95 Degrees and heat index readings of 100 to 105 Degrees. An isolated late day thunderstorm is possible, but I do think that most areas should stay dry on Tuesday.


Wednesday could see an active afternoon and evening of thunderstorms, some of which could be strong to severe as a strong cold front pushes through the area.


Skies during the day on Wednesday will feature a mixture of some sunshine and clouds. It will be hot and humid with high temperatures between 90 and 95 Degrees and heat index readings of near 100 Degrees.


Now, to discuss the thunderstorm threat for Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday evening – As I already mentioned, a strong cold front is expected to push through the area during the late afternoon and evening hours. This front will push into an environment that will be quite unstable and contains plenty of moisture. This should be more than enough to set off strong to severe thunderstorms across the entire area during the afternoon and evening.


Current indications seem to point towards thunderstorms developing across the entire area during the mid and late afternoon hours of Wednesday and then continuing through the evening hours. Thunderstorms should come to an end by just after midnight Wednesday night. Some of the thunderstorms will be on the strong to severe side with the main threat being wind gusts of up to 60 mph. Extremely heavy downpours with localized flooding and frequent lightning will also be a threat.


Thursday Through Next Sunday: A break from the unrelenting heat and humidity is expected starting on Thursday and continuing right through next weekend.


Thursday looks to start out cloudy and there will be some leftover scattered showers around, especially over Central Mass. Skies then look to become partly sunny during the afternoon. High temperatures will be between 80 and 85 Degrees with lower humidity levels.


Friday looks sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures near 80 Degrees along with very tolerable humidity levels.


Saturday is expected to be sunny with high temperatures between 80 and 85 Degrees. Humidity levels will once again be quite tolerable.


Next Sunday looks partly sunny with high temperatures between 80 and 85 Degrees. While humidity levels still look tolerable, they will be a little higher than what they are expected to be on Friday and Saturday.

For Tonight & Saturday: An area of low pressure now located over the southern parts of Virginia is expected to head northeastward and ride along a stationary frontal boundary. The combination of these two weather features will lead to widespread showers that will produce heavy downpours starting late tonight that lasts through Saturday morning. In addition to the widespread showers, a few thunderstorms are a possibility as the atmosphere will be quite humid and somewhat unstable.


There will be an increase in shower activity beginning just after midnight tonight that will become quite widespread in overall coverage by sunrise Saturday morning.


During Saturday morning, I anticipate that there will be widespread showers across the entire area and some of the heavier showers will produce heavy downpours. In addition to this, a few thunderstorms could occur during Saturday morning, especially across areas near and south of the Mass Pike where there will be enough of an unstable atmosphere to produce thunderstorms.


The shower activity will gradually diminish in coverage during the first half of the afternoon with some isolated showers and possible thunderstorms left by late afternoon.


Total rainfall amounts of up to one inch looks likely from late tonight through Saturday morning with localized amounts of up to 2 inches possible in the heavier downpours.


It will be very humid tonight and Saturday. Low temperatures tonight will be between 70 and 75 Degrees. High temperatures Saturday will be near 80 Degrees.


Winds tonight will be Southwest at 10 to 20 mph. Winds on Saturday will be Southwest at 5 to 10 mph.


Sunday: The sun will return on Sunday, but the heat and humidity will also be in full force. High temperatures Sunday will be between 85 and 90 Degrees with humid conditions. Winds will be West at 5 to 10 mph.

For Tonight: I wish I had better news for you in terms of any relief from the hot temperatures and the unbearably humid conditions, but unfortunately, hot and humid weather sticks around through at least the end of next week and possibly much longer.


The remnants of what was once Hurricane Beryl is producing a severe weather and tornado outbreak across western and northern New York State that will push into central and northern Vermont over the next few hours. All of these thunderstorms are expected to remain to our west and not be an issue for us.


Skies throughout tonight will be cloudy and there will be the possibility of a few showers around well after midnight.


It will feel very tropical tonight with low temperatures between 70 and 75 Degrees. Winds will be South at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph.


Thursday: Skies will start out cloudy during the morning and there may be a few showers around. Skies then will be partly sunny during the afternoon with humid conditions.


High temperatures will be between 85 and 90 Degrees. Winds will be Southwest at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph.


Thursday Night: Another warm and very tropical night is expected on Thursday night under partly cloudy skies. Low temperatures will be between 65 and 70 Degrees. Winds will be Southwest at 10 to 20 mph.


Friday: A generally partly sunny day is expected on Friday and it will be warm and very humid.


High temperatures will be near 85 Degrees. Winds will be Southwest at 8 to 16 mph.


Friday Night & Saturday: A widespread rainfall is looking likely starting late Friday night and continuing into much of the day on Saturday. The cause for this rain looks to be a frontal boundary draped across the region combining with a tropical low pressure system crossing the region.


Widespread showers look to overspread the entire area during the after midnight hours of Friday night. These widespread showers, which will produce heavy downpours and localized flooding will continue through much of the day on Saturday. Also, an isolated thunderstorm or two is also a possibility at times during Saturday morning as a very humid air mass overrides a somewhat unstable atmosphere.


Low temperatures Friday night will be between 65 and 70 Degrees. High temperatures Saturday will be near 80 Degrees.


Sunday: Hot and humid weather returns for Sunday under sunny to partly sunny skies. High temperatures will be near 90 Degrees.
