Another Steambath Expected – Record Highs Possible

Good morning! Another record- or near-record hot one expected today. Today will bring mainly south-southwesterly winds today, with some showers possible across mostly northern New England, but southern New England could also get in on some showers.

Highs to range between either side of 80 in northern Maine, low 80s along the east half of the coast, to the mid 80s to low 90s, across central Maine and the western half of the coast, to the low 90s in interior southern Maine; between the mid 80s in far northern New Hampshire, to the upper 80s across most of the state, and low 90s in parts of central and southern New Hampshire. Mid 90s are not out of the question in the Merrimack Valley south of and including Concord. In Vermont, expect between mid 80s in the Northeast Kingdom and the mountains to upper 80s and perhaps an isolated 90 degree reading along the New York border, and the southern half of the New Hampshire border. In Massachusetts, highs to range from around 80 on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket and the immediate south coast to the mid 80s along the inland south coast and the highest elevations of the Berkshires, and the upper 80s and low 90s across most of the rest of the state, including the east coast. Low 90s are fairly certain in Northeast MA and the Boston Metro, with some mid-90s readings not fully out of the question in the Merrimack Valley. Rhode Island will be in the mid 80s, with upper 70s and low 80s at the immediate coast and upper 80s and some low 90s in northern parts. Connecticut will be in the upper 80s in interior southern, mid 80s at the coast, and low 90s in the northern half.

Again, a mainly mostly sunny to sunny day. HIgher humidity for today is expected with dewpoints mainly in the mid to upper 60s (lower in northern Maine).

Have a good day!

Hello! I'm Nathan Coram, a 20 year old meteorology student and weather geek, and am in my junior year at UMass Lowell as a meteorology major. I am the current Vice President of the UML American Meteorological Society Local Student Chapter. Prior to at UML, I attended the Dracut school system for my K-12 years, having graduated from Dracut High in 2018. I first got into weather with the December 2008 ice storm, which knocked out my electricity for 4 days. I had no idea how it could be raining and becoming ice immediately, and how rain can knock out power. (Now I do - warm layer aloft, cold air at surface). But I didn't really get into it until the heat of July 2010 and specifically a few severe weather events during that month, followed by the year 2011, which featured several high profile weather events. Since then I have had a growing interest, and am hoping to make it into the meteorology field, preferably with NOAA/NWS. But for now, I'm blogging here on Dracut Weather (also on Twitter and Facebook), helping with the UML Weather Center social media, and tweeting about the weather on my own account as well. Thanks for visiting!
