6/29/12 Hot weather returns

A heat wave is expected to invade the Boston area this weekend (3 or more days above 90).

The massive heat that has been building in the Rockies and south will move in today and stay with us until Sunday, when a bit of a cool down back into the 80s returns for the holiday week.

It will be coolest along the coastal areas and south facing beaches today.
For today, Friday, a few scattered showers and thunderstorms will move through during the morning hours, then reform later in the day. Expect mid 90s in most places, except upper 80s at the beaches with upper 70s to lower 80s on the Cape. Dew point levels will be dropping today, so it will not feel as humid today or tonight, but will rise over the weekend.

Our heat today is being transported in around a very HOT high pressure to the south. The flow for New England will be mostly west though so the extreme heat remains south.
Scattered Thunderstorms are possible each day, but no areas of organized rain is expected.
