Good Sunday morning! It was a chilly one to start the day with temperatures in the mid-40s to mid-50s! Temperatures will rebound nicely this afternoon under bright sunshine thanks to high pressure over the area. Highs will reach the mid-70s to low 80s with the coolest conditions along the coast.
It will be a great day for any outdoor activities. The UV index is running high, so definitely don't forget the sunscreen. Pollen levels are also high, so if you are an allergy sufferer... fair warning. If your plans bring you to the beach today, water temperatures will be in the 60s. Waves are light, running about 1 to 2 feet, keeping the risk of rip currents low. A cooling sea breeze may knock down temperatures in the afternoon. You may start to lose some beach space in the afternoon as high tide is around 3 p.m. in Boston.
Tonight, high pressure will begin to slip away and clouds will begin to move into the area from the north. It will not be as cool as last night with overnight lows in the 50s to low 60s.
Mother Nature will give in and turn on the natural sprinklers as we head into the work week. Our eyes will first be on a weather system passing through southern Quebec Monday and Tuesday which will give us the chance of showers and thunderstorms Monday into Monday night. Another system will increase the chance of scattered showers and storms on Wednesday. This brief unsettled pattern will come to an end as high pressure will build into the area at the end of the work week. Indications so far show the dry conditions may even linger into the holiday weekend!
Hope you have a great day and enjoy the rest of the weekend! Follow me on twitter @sarahwroblewski
