Weekly Outlook: August 2-8, 2021

As we get into the first week of August, we’ll leave the wet pattern of July behind, though parts of the region could still see a decent amount of rain during the next 7 days.

Low pressure pulls away from the region this morning, with any lingering showers coming to an end. However, an upper-level disturbance will move through this afternoon, possibly triggering another shower or two. High pressure then builds in for Tuesday with dry and seasonable conditions.

Wednesday is a little bit of a question mark for part of the area. High pressure will remain in control resulting in a dry day for most of us. However, the front that moved through this morning will stall out offshore, and a wave of low pressure will ride up along it on Wednesday. This may bring in some showers to parts of Cape Cod and possibly southeastern Massachusetts and southern Rhode Island. Some of the models show the potential for some heavy rain in these areas, but this will be dependent on how close the wave actually gets to us.

Most of the models don’t bring Wednesday’s rain beyond southeastern Mass. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.

Another system follows for late Thursday into early Friday, but again, any rain may be limited to southeastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod, depending on how close the system passes offshore. Another system may move through next weekend with more showers possible, but temperatures will start to warm up once again as a ridge of high pressure over the Atlantic starts to strengthen.

Average high temperatures in early August should be in the lower to middle 80s across the region. Image provided by Weathermodels.com
