Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast

If you didn’t know the date, you could probably figure it out by looking at the forecast: hazy, hot and humid with a chance for afternoon storms. It must be early August!

The forecast is much the same through most of the work week: highs in the low-to-mid 90s with a 25-30% chance for showers and storms. That means you probably won’t see storms where you live every day, but you may see rain once or twice this week.

We will finally see a pattern change by Friday. A cold front will sweep through, pushing the mercury back down into the low-to-mid 80s. Showers and storms are possible on Friday and likely on Saturday as that front slowly crosses our region. Some wet weather may even stick around for next Sunday.

Weather & Health for Tuesday
Pollen: Moderate (Grasses)
UV Index: Very High
Air Quality: Good
Mosquitoes: Very High

Today in Weather History (NWS Wakefield)
