Our mostly dry and warm model keeps rolling.

Although some towns and villages were lucky enough to receive decent rain from yesterday’s storms, many were left behind with barely enough raindrops to wet the ground. Our dry pattern continues through the weekend, which is great if you have outdoor plans, but not so great as much of the region is currently experiencing moderate drought, with severe drought levels in northeastern Massachusetts to southern New Hampshire.

Today will be mostly sunny and warm conditions throughout the region, except for the southeastern regions, as some high thin clouds associated with a frontal border to the south of the region will continue to flow over above. Humidity levels will be low with highs reaching the low 80s in the interior, the upper 70s along the coast due to sea breezes and the upper 70s in the far north of the New England.

Overnight we will remain mostly clear and comfortable with lows falling in the 60s in the south, 50s in central and northern New England. Along the coast we can see some minor splashing during the nightly high tide cycle due to an astronomically high tide, but there shouldn’t be any major issues there.

Another beautiful day is expected on Saturday with warm temperatures and low humidity. Most of the region will remain dry, but can’t rule out a very isolated downpour/sprinkler bubbling inland through the afternoon.

Make the most of Saturday, as the humidity should return on Sunday with milder temperatures. A few showers and thunderstorms may occur in the afternoon, but not expecting drought destroying rains, but hey, we’ll take what we can.
