More Areas to Hit 90 Degrees Today, Grab Your Sunscreen

A few spots in New England hit 90 degrees for the first time Thursday and we’re going to add to that list on Friday.

For most of us, it’s a fine hot sunny summer day. But not all. Once again, we have the low clouds and fog near the ocean that will take a few hours to burn off. But with a warmer air mass and a lower dew point, just about everyone should end up with sunshine by midday and afternoon.

And for change, it looks like most of the thunderstorms should stay out of New England, at least until about sunset or so.

Slow Warm-up Into Next Week

Wind is light and variable and will become locally onshore, cooling the beach is back to the low 80s. However, the sunburn factor is close to a 10 out of 10.

Showers and thunderstorms are likely across central and northern New England overnight Friday. It’s a warm night with a low temperature near 70 degrees.

We start off with clouds and a few showers or thunderstorms early Saturday, then a few hours of sunshine before afternoon showers and thunderstorms return. Temperatures warm again in the 80s to near 90 degrees with a bit of higher humidity than Friday.

A cooler air mass in southeastern Canada will press south Saturday night and Sunday, triggering another round of thunderstorms overnight and Sunday. Some of the storms may be strong to severe, with possible damaging wind and hail. Certainly plenty of dangerous lightning.

There will be breaks of sunshine Saturday, but probably the wettest of the next several days with some locations getting more than an inch of rain in a very short time. In any one location, it should rain for 15 to 30 minutes, then breaks of sun. High temperatures in the 70s to low 80s.

Cooler and less humid air comes in Sunday afternoon into Monday morning. Monday ends up having partly to mostly sunny day temperatures rebounding to near 80 degrees with lower humidity. The outlook for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Independence Day, are all similar with temperatures in the low 80s and just a chance for a spot afternoon or evening thunderstorms.
