THESE WILL BE HIT OR MISS SHOWERS AND DOWNPOURS, SO NOT EVERYBODY WILL SEE THEM, BUT THEN NEEDED RAINFALL WILL BE LATE IN THE MORNING AND THROUGH THE AFTERNOON, CHANCES RAMPING DOWN FURTHER INTO THE EVENING. ONCE AGAIN PAST TODAY IT IS ALL ABOUT THE HEAT. LOOK AT WHAT IS COMING AFTER TODAY, TOMORROW, FRIDAY, EVEN INTO SATURDAY AT OR ABOVE 90. WITH THAT, THE COMBINATION WILL LEAD TO A HEAT INDEX VALUE AROUND 100 DEGREES WITH THE HEAT ADVISORY POSTED FOR TOMORROW BETWEEN NOON AND 7:00 P.M. FOR A LOT OF METRO BOSTON. THE REAL OPPRESSIVE HUMIDITY IS DOWN TO THE SOUTH, STILL FEEDING IN ON THAT SOUTHWESTERLY WIND — STARTING TO FILL WITH MORE CLOUD COVER AND YOU CAN SEE THE SOUTHWESTERLY WIND PICKING UP. LOWER 70’S ON THE CAPE, 69 IN LAWRENCE, WHAT ARE THE CORE SPOTS SITTING AT 71. MOSTLY IN THE LOWER 80’S WITH THAT SOUTHWESTERLY WIND KEEPING US HERE WITH THE RISK OF SHOWERS AND STORMS. IT TRIGGERS SHOWERS AND STORMS ACROSS NEW YORK, A LOT OF LIGHTNING BACK TOWARD SYRACUSE AND WORKING EASTWARD. WE WILL WATCH THE CLOUDS ADVANCE IN SOME OF THOSE SHOWERS FILL IN FROM WEST TO EAST SO BY 10:00, WE START TO GET IN ON SOME SHOWERS, AND THOSE WILL SHIFT EASTWARD GETTING CLOSER TO BOSTON FOR YOUR LUNCH HOUR TODAY . THIS MAY BE A LITTLE BIT OVERDONE, MORE HIT AND MISS, BUT THE POTENTIAL IS THERE FOR EMBEDDED DOWNPOURS THAT COULD LEAD TO LOCALIZED POOR DRAINAGE FLOODING. BY MIDAFTERNOON, A FEW MORE THUNDERSTORMS MAY POP UP, HEADING TOWARD THE CITY. IF YOU ARE HEADED TO FENWAY. THE CHANCES OF TEMPERATURES SHOULD BE AROUND 80 DEGREES WITH FALLING BACK INTO THE LOWER 70’S. UNCOMFORTABLE TONIGHT, TOMORROW IN THE MID-90’S WITH THE HEAT ADVISORY. AS WE GET TOWARD THE WEEKEND I WILL BE WATCHING THIS FRONT TO THE NORTH ON SATURDAY AND THEN START TO SHIFT SOUTHWARD. EVENTUALLY WE WILL GET MULTIPLE OPPORTUNITIES SO IT WILL NOT BE
