Today: Mostly sunny and pleasant. Temperatures will end up in the upper 70s along the coastline and low 80s inland. More importantly the dew points will stay at a reasonable level...roughly upper 50s. (Below 50 is "crisp", upper 50s are "comfortable"). The vast majority of the state will be totally sunny, but some cloud cover will spill into southern Maine and New Hampshire through the afternoon. Those clouds will be part of an upper level disturbance in NJ. The showers will stay away, but some of the cloud cover will find its way into spots south of say Yarmouth (spell-check suggestion: Motormouth). Either way, today will be nice.
Tonight: Partly cloudy and quiet. Lows will fall between 55-60 in most spot with increasing humidity.
Sunday: A Bermuda High sets up offshore and starts pumping in hot, humid air. As a result the second half of the weekend will be notably less comfortable. Look for mostly sunny skies and temperatures pushing into the upper 80s away from the immediate coastline. The meso-scale models (#nerdslang) are trying to pop up some afternoon showers, but I don't really buy it. I think in reality the showers will stay in New Hampshire and Maine will remain dry and hot.
Monday will be the hottest day of the stretch with highs pushing to around 90 F even along the coastline. Some computer models have inland spots hitting 93-94 by Monday afternoon, and you know what, I buy it. With a west wind, plentiful sunshine and upper air temperatures that are way above average...we are going to roast.
An isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible Tuesday/Wednesday afternoon but temperatures will remain in the mid to upper 80s.
