It will be another hot day across the region with some relief again at the coast as the sea breeze blows on Friday afternoon. High would be about 90 degrees inland, 80 degrees on the coast and 70 degrees on Cape Cod.
The difference on Friday is that there will be a risk of thunderstorms. In typical summer fashion, not everyone sees storms and not all storms are strong – but some can contain torrential rain, thunder, and brief gusts of wind. So it’s definitely a day to watch out for the weather, especially from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., and especially north and west of Boston.
Any thunderstorm activity will weaken later in the evening, leaving overnight showers and rains with 50s lows. And we won’t be out of the 50s on Saturday! Combine the cool temperatures with strong northeasterly winds that sometimes blow up to 35 mph and 40 mph over Cape Cod, and you’re in for a chill.
Morning showers will subside and give way to a drier afternoon and maybe even a few rays of sunshine. Sunday looks to be mostly dry, although Cape Cod could see some showers and a little bit of ocean moisture that could turn against us. We’ll be in our 50s with the northeasterly winds continuing to blow.
Next week our temperatures won’t be as cool but will be below average for this time of year (in the 60s). Lower levels at higher levels stalled would put the forecast at risk of continued showers through midweek, though none of the days look likely to be washed out. We’ll be a little brighter and warmer next weekend and next weekend as seen in our exclusive 10-day forecast.
