    Boston to Stay Dry, Cool on Friday

    Drier air will sweep into Boston for through Friday, replacing the midweek flooding downpours.

    The same storm system that soaked Boston on Wednesday also caused Islip to shatter New York state's 24-hour rainfall record.

    Tannersville, New York, previously held the record with the 11.60 inches that poured down during once-Hurricane Irene on Aug. 27-28, 2011.

    While much of the area will be dry and fall-like on Friday, there could a brief shower or two on Cape Cod.


    High temperatures will be held to the middle to upper 70s again on Friday. A high of 80 F is typical in mid-August, while highs in the middle 70s are more common in September.

    Low humidity will complement the weather, creating ideal conditions for many outdoor activities. This includes the series between the Red Sox and Houston Astros at Fenway Park.

    Some residents and visitors may opt for a long-sleeved shirt or light jacket at night as temperatures dip to around the 60-degree mark near the coast and the 50s in many suburbs.

    Temperatures will rise into the upper 70s to start the weekend, but humidity will remain comfortably low and dry weather will persist.


    The return of higher humidity is expected for Sunday.
