higher before we get to the end of this week or right at the end of the week tomorrow and there will be a few changes too for the weekend. take a look at our web cam network, where the joseph cast skies are in. it is quite sticky but warm in many spots, out there in the monadnock region from rindge, the hazy appearance, a little partial sun, quite a few clouds and a couple of showers approaching from the west, as we look ahead there is a chance of a couple of showers, maybe a spots tonight. unfortunately not enough to help out with the extreme drought. clouds to sun and hot on friday. we're making a run close to 9 # degrees in many spots south of the lakes region, even at the coast. then we get to the weekend which will offer sun, some clouds, couple of shower chances and temperatures not as hot, but still mild and warm as we go
you notice how the showers break up in central areas, and then some strong storms around albany and points north and west. a good chance that one or two may survive the trip into the monadnock region, around 8:00 this evening. however, the tendency is for these storms to weaken a little. so can't promise a whole lot of rain as the front moves on through. as we advance through the evening again, that chance of a shower or thunderstorm first around 8:00 in the upper valley and the monadnock rn, tomorrow morning quite a few clouds early, but then quickly by mid to rate morning into the afternoon a lot of sunshine will develop, the winds turn around to the west northwest and that will dry us out significantly. so with a lot of sun coming in here we're looking for a very humid start, then the dew points will dip during the afternoon. right now 70's and 80's, still above the average except right at the coast where the fog is filling back in.
statewide with the dew point on average in the mid 60's. but notice how it jumps tomorrow morning, up into the tropical humid range, right around 70 degrees. then the dew point will dip a little bit, later on in the afternoon, but the heat will be up near 90 plus. slightly humid over the weekend, not as tropical as we'll have out there tomorrow morning, but still a little bit sticky for the weekend. overnight tonight only 60's and lower 70's. a very warm sta clears with sun for friday, notice another system back to the west gets close and that moves in for saturday with times of sun, times of clouds and a passing shower or thundershower. another bet of a shower or storm later saturday night into sunday morning. we could use a lot more rain than we're going to get out of these, unfortunately they're more scattered in nature rather than a widespread rain, and i don't see a widespread rain event around here for some time.
