12:15 pm
>> what's the time frame? >> i think the second half the afternoon is when we have the greatest threat of thunderstorms which shthe usual typical time. right now boston is 76. the dew point 63. so not all that humid yet. the wind is right out of the east at nine miles an hour. so it will keep the coastline a little bit cooler in the afternoon than some inlet locations. so it's essentially in the cloudy side but there have been some breaks of sunshine. a little bit of sun peeking through. so it may get up to close to 80 in boston wind tries to turn more southeast. that warm front will pour through here. so it may be along that boundary where showers and thunderstorms do develop this afternoon. so we have 76 in boston right now. even some 60s way up north where it's been raining in parts of the mountains. but we only had a couple showers early this morning. you can see west of the costal plain we have temperatures up to low, middle 80s. it will be coming increasing
12:16 pm
70s coming back at us again for another visit here. we're going to have an extremely humid weather overnight and first thing tomorrow morning. it will dry out tomorrow. so there's the higher dew points to the south. in terms of rainfall right now, we have light showers across northern new england. we have some rain coming into central new york. but practically no lightning out there at the present time. so be watching the sky throughout the afternoon, even the models are not indicating this to be as robust as they were yesterday. still think that the parameters are in place later on this afternoon for some scattered showers and thunderstorms. that doesn't look bad at all. but really keep an eye on the sky because conditions may become a lot more favorable. watch as we go through the night and see what the temperatures do all night long. they're going to be mitigate mid and -- mid and upper 70s all night. it will be a extremely humid night. a really balmy breeze picking up out of the southwest. then tomorrow morning, the front goes through here. look when we head out tomorrow
12:17 pm
upper 70s, very humid. turning drier in the day. temperatures going into the unner 80s. so storm prediction center has us in an area of slight risk for severe thunderstorms and scattered spots. and the primary risk from these thunderstorms will be localized flooding and some damaging wind gusts. a very low risk at this point it seems of a tornado. that would be mainly out in western new england. watch the wind later today. here we go to tomorrow morning. 25 to 30 miles per hour tomorrow morning. throughout the day it's going to be definitely on the reason for all of this is the warm and humid air coming from the southwest. we have temperatures in the 90s. so if you're going to the beach tomorrow, it's going to be in the 80s and it's going to dry out and the tide is going to be high. here is my seven day forecast. keep an eye to the sky for possible thunderstorms will be on if anything becomes severe, and keep you posted. going to the up iter 80s to almost 90 tomorrow even though it dries out quite a bit in the afternoon.
