Dennis ... sinneD?

By VeroniquÉ Bugnion
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- Thanks to the high pressure system which seems to have adopted New England as its home, we can expect more of the same weather over the next few days. Patches of high clouds may obscure the sun now and then, but expect generally clear skies, pleasantly warm temperatures and very light winds. The humidity will continue to creep up during the next few days, allowing for the possibility of early morning fog on Friday.

For the record books, the Blue Hills observatory reports that the summer of 1999 was the second warmest of the past 100 years.

Off of the Carolinas’ coast, there is a chance that the now tropical storm Dennis will begin to retrace the trajectory it took over the past few days, but in reverse. It is however not expected to regain hurricane strength.

Today: Sunny, high of 81°F (26°C)

Tonight: Clear, low of 62°F (17°C)

Friday: High of 83°F (27°C)

Saturday Outlook: Sunny and warm, more humid.
