We’d like to start this week’s outlook by wishing a Happy Canada Day to all of our friends north of the border. Celebrate the day with a double-double and some Timbits in the morning, then down a few Keith’s while watching the Jays lose in the afternoon. Your beer is great, your hockey and baseball teams aren’t. As for those of us in America, specifically eastern and southern New England, we’ve got a nice stretch of summer weather coming up this week.
Much of the first half of the week will be dominated by high pressure, with dry and seasonably warm weather expected along with moderate humidity. The exception will be late tonight into Tuesday morning. A weak upper-level disturbance will be moving across the region, and it may produce a few showers, but that’s about it. Otherwise, we’ve got some fantastic weather through Wednesday.
As most of you get set for barbecues, fireworks, and whatever else you have planned for the Fourth of July of Thursday, we’re looking at warm to hot weather along with increasing humidity. A late-day shower or thunderstorm is possible, so make sure you are paying attention if you have outdoor plans, but we’re not expecting widespread activity, and for most of you, there should be little to no impact.
A cold front will start to approach the region on Friday, which may produce some more widespread shower and thunderstorm activity during the afternoon, but it will be another warm and humid day. More showers and storms are expected on Saturday as the front finally moves through the area, but there isn’t a lot of cool air behind this front, so it will still be warm on Sunday. The biggest change will be some much drier air settling into the area.
