    High pressure to our north has pushed cooler air into New England.

    In some cases, the temperature and the dewpoint have come together near the ocean and in some of the Connecticut River Valley for patchy dense fog once again Thursday morning.

    The air should dry out, with enough sunshine, to burn the fog off at the seashore Thursday. There is a weak boundary over New England with more humid air trying to lift back toward the north. Along that boundary, we have a shower and or a thunderstorm in the afternoon from western Massachusetts to central and northern New Hampshire and western Maine.

    Highs on Thursday will be 70 to 75 degrees at the beach, to 80 degrees or a little warmer well away from the coast. Winds from the east will gust at about 10 to 15 mph.

    Fog redevelops in a more widespread fashion overnight. Low temperature will be in the 50s to low 60s north, 60s to about 70 degrees south.

    Thursday is a little bit warmer and more humid away from the coast, where there are better chances of a thunderstorm. But overall, it’s a mostly cloudy day with high temperatures still 70 to 75 degrees at the beach.

    A warm front pushes through Friday night and Saturday. That means a lot of clouds, fog, and the chance for scattered showers or thunderstorms mid-day Saturday. High temperatures on Saturday will be close to 80 degrees on average.

    Once again, it will be warmer away from the coast.

    No matter the weather, it’s a great day to help Clear the Shelters and adopt a pet on Saturday.

    Sunday features the Falmouth Road Race on Cape Cod. That almost always means very humid weather, and it is true this year.

    A warm to hot Sunday is in store, with a lot of clouds and some afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Fog at the coast should burn off just about the time of the Falmouth Road Race. High temperature in the 80s, dew point near 70 degrees.

    Low pressure to our north and a front to our west will bring in warm to hot weather for the beginning of next week. Temperatures will likely be close to 90 degrees Monday and Tuesday with a chance of a shower or thunderstorm each afternoon.
