Enjoy the cooler than average temperatures and low humidity for now.  The heat and humidity are right around the corner.

Overnight: Partly To Mostly Cloudy & Cool

Lows: 55-60 | Wind: SE 5 m.p.h.

Wednesday: A Mix of Sun and Clouds With A Stray Shower Possible

Highs: Mid 70s | Wind: SSE 5 m.p.h.

Thursday: Partly Cloudy & Warmer With An Afternoon Shower/T'storm Possible

Highs: 75-80 | Wind: SW 5-10 m.p.h.

Highs today were a good 10 degrees cooler than average!  For this time in June, highs should be around 80 degrees.  The humidity was also low, so it feels quite pleasant.  An upper level low, spinning off the New England coast, will keep us under this slightly below average temperature trend through Wednesday.  Expect tomorrow and Thursday to, again, feature a mix of sun and clouds with a passing shower not out of the question.  Temperatures will slowly climb, back into the mid 70s tomorrow and back to near 80 degrees by Thursday. 

Big changes arrive for the weekend.  A ridge of high pressure will lock us into a hot and humid weather pattern starting Saturday.  It will also bring a good deal of sunshine.  The humidity will start to rise by Saturday, as temperatures climb into the upper 80s.  Low 90s are expected both Sunday and Monday with higher humidity.
