Boston Weather: 41.0°F | A Few Clouds

Weather: Salubrious Sunday


Salubrious Sunday

By Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

A small area of high pressure will be perfectly positioned and timed just right to give our region a wonderful late summer Sunday. The next system coming from the northwest appears to pack no punch and little moisture, and thus only a scattering of showers is expected for the first day of the work week.

Meanwhile, the tropics have become alive after a ho-hum July. Hurricane Edouard, located about 1,000 miles (1,610 km) east of Lesser Antilles, packing 115 knot gales and sporting a well-defined eye, may threaten eastern edges of the Caribbean, and eventually progress towards the Unites States mainland on a track resembling Bertha's vagaries of early summer. Another tropical depression, just emerging from the hurricane spawning spot of Cape Verde Islands has a potential for gaining more strength during the next few days.

Sunday: Sunny and warm, especially inland, where temperatures may reach 8590F (3032C) by late afternoon. Boston's high of 84F (29C) will be similar to the temperatures on the Cape and along the beaches, where early sea breezes will gradually fade away by mid afternoon.

Sunday night: Clear with a scattering of high clouds. Mild southwesterly winds. Low near 66F (19C).

Monday: Mostly sunny early, becoming partly cloudy during the day. Chance of scattered showers, especially to the north. Midday high of 82F (28C) may drop off a few degrees along the shoreline in response to weak seabreezes kicking in.
