    Boston: Less Humid Air to Turn Off Downpours

    In the wake of the drenching, gusty and disruptive storms into the middle of the week, drier air will settle into the Boston area Thursday through the weekend.

    The zone of showers and thunderstorms that delivered from 1 to 4 inches of rain over southeastern New England during the first part of the week is heading out to sea.

    Humidity levels will lower into Thursday as some sunshine returns. The balance of the week and weekend is forecast to be free of rain for Red Sox baseball, jogging, enjoying the beach and taking on outdoor projects.

    The less humid air will set the stage for lower temperatures at night. Lows will dip to unseasonably cool levels in the northern and western suburbs into the end of the week, while record chill holds up over the Midwest.

    During next week, humidity levels and temperatures will trend upward. As this happens, the risk of thunderstorms will increase across the region.
