A look at the week ahead

A cold front will pass through the region tonight setting off showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and tonight.  The first batch will move through southern MA, northern CT and RI before collapsing near the coast.  A second batch early this evening may contain thunderstorms, but not of the severe variety.  The second batch will spread across a bigger area so several lawns and gardens will get needed water tonight.  

How much will hold together?

The weather Tuesday through Thursday is great.  Low humidity and temperatures in the 80's.  Tuesday will have a slight chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorms, the greatest chance of these is in northern regions of New England.  A warm front will pass through either later Thursday or Friday.  This will bring the heat and humidity back with it, but it will be nothing like last week.  Saturday will have a threat of showers and thunderstorms, but clearing for the night.  Sunday looks to have fair weather.

In summary, the weather is fairly quiet.  More sunshine that rain, but enough rain to keep lawns green and lakes pretty full.  

Record Highs for Boston/Worcester over the next 5 days
July 25- Boston 96 (1882)   Worcester 93 (1941)
July 26- Boston 96 (1963)   Worcester 94 (1892)
July 27- Boston 98 (1882)   Worcester 93 (1949)
July 28- Boston 99 (1949)   Worcester 95 (1892)
July 29- Boston 97 (1931)   Worcester 94 (1892)

Note- Boston tied the record for July 22 when the temperature reached 103 at Logan Airport.  This is the 2nd highest temperature in recorded history in Boston.

Fenway forecast
Fairly miserable weather for a July game.  Highs of the mid 60's with a 50 percent chance of rain and thunder.  Bring an umbrella and a jacket to the game tonight.  Its almost the opposite of Friday nights game.  The Royals starting pitcher has an ERA of 7.32 so if you have tickets its a good bet you'll still see some offense from the white hot Red Sox.  The team is on pace to win 106 games, even with the 2-10 start.
