As severe thunderstorms developed yesterday, they remained to our south and west. We received 0.53″ of rain with a little thunder and lightning, but not much more. Many areas got over 2 inches of rain and some wind damage but we were lucky once again. Today will continue to be very warm and we aren’t expected to see much sun. That should keep it a bit cooler.

Cold fronts are generated by air mass disparity. They have become generally weaker due to climate change. Explains the lack of widespread thunderstorms in summer. Boston has seen a reduction in summer thunder days over many years.
