Summer Returns For the End of the Week

Hermine is still spinning off the northeast coast.  Here is the visible satellite image from last night at 6 PM

It is drier than it has been the past two mornings on radar but there is still some moisture working in off the Atlantic as the remnant circulation finally goes out to sea.   Currently these are confined to the Cape/Islands in MA and coastal RI but fog and drizzle have reduced visibility in Central/Eastern MA and RI.

Here is the 5 AM surface chart which shows Hermine and high pressure building in West Virginia.  Much of the northeast will approach 90 today because of this high.
WPC Surface Analysis 5 AM
Clearing will take a bit of time this morning so we avoid the 90's.  From west to east temperatures will range from mid 80's to near 80 at the coast.  Central MA can expect temps around 81-84 today.

A cold front will pass overnight with a few showers possible.  However instead of a cool down the resulting atmosphere behind the front will lead to temperatures near 90 tomorrow.  Dew points will also be up in the mid 60's.   No relief from the muggy air until another cold front crosses the region Saturday night/Sunday AM.

Happy NFL kickoff day.  Light winds, clear skies and a kick off temperature near 71 in Denver tonight.
