downpours that moved through earlier today, but they didn't amount to very much or last very long. the forecast models have been really overdoing the storms, but i show you this to give you an idea that it's not completely out of the question as we head through the evening hours with an isolated shower or storm across the south coast, cape cod or the islands overnight tonight. again, won't last for long or amount for much. highs today, a hot one, and once clouds, 90 in new bedford and nashua and the dew points were high, and i say 60 degrees is a good threshold and anything above that is humid and when we get above 70 degrees, that is when it feels like a florida afternoon. to put it in perspective for you, this is where we were today and this is where we'll be tomorrow and we keep that humidity in check, sunday, monday, tuesday and doesn't
not the greatest thing with severe weather with the fronts that can come through in the summertime, but behind it, less humid air that charges in. i think maybe a few clouds as we get into tomorrow afternoon, but other than that, it's another one of the summer stunners in store for us, not just to wrap up the weekend but also for monday or tuesday. this is vacation week and it looks good for the first half of the week. we get another chance of rain on wednesday, but, again, it's just not going to be a drought showers and storms, again, in the forecast and will take the remnants of the tropical storm to bust the drought and we're so far in the hold at this point. very clear tonight, mild and 70 degrees for a low in boston, so doesn't cool off very much tonight and tomorrow, mostly sunny and lower the humidity and highs topping out in the mid-80s with a great beach day with the water temperatures 70 to 73 and
