Highs in the upper 70s, low 80s with drier air – NBC Boston


The bulk of the action from Wednesday’s low remained around northern New England and coastal Maine. The day and the evening were recoverable elsewhere. The northerly coastal winds will change direction on Thursday with the departure of the low. Although still gusty at times, the westerly flow brings drier air and comfortable days ahead. Thursday features highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Drier air also closes out the work week as temperatures climb into the upper 80s, near 90 degrees.

Dry is the status quo, but is not good. A new drought monitor will be released on Thursday, and things aren’t expected to change much for southern New England. A few areas in Maine and New Hampshire are likely to see improvement with recent rains.

Generally sunny skies will continue Friday and Saturday. Another disturbance is drifting south of Long Island and could bring some splashing in the evening or overnight Saturday evening. But I don’t expect much fanfare.

A few opportunities for rain arrive in the 10-day forecast, but attention turns more to above-average warmth to end August. Although not every day, the trend is for the average days between August 25 and August 31.
