    Boston: New Cool Push to Settle in Thursday, Friday

    By Alex Sosnowski, senior meteorologist.

    Yet another push of cooler and less humid air will settle into the Boston area prior to the weekend.

    While Bertha will still generate some rough surf and the risk of locally strong rip currents into Thursday along the Atlantic coast, the system was losing tropical characteristics.

    As a disturbance in the upper levels of the atmosphere moves through on Thursday, showers and spotty thunderstorms will affect the area.

    Some of the storms could produce small hail.

    Spanning Friday through Sunday, each day will bring at least partial sunshine, cooler-than-average air and lower-than-average humidity levels for early August. Typical highs this time of the year are around 81 F. A few spots may experience a shower on Friday afternoon.

    A system is forecast to spread some rain and thunder across the Ohio Valley and southern part of the mid-Atlantic this weekend. That rain would only move into and overwhelm the dry air around New England if this system travels farther to the north than now expected.
