This month has been incredibly soggy across New England, and Hingham is no exception to that.
Already, just two weeks into the month, and July 2021 ranks as the 3rd wettest July on record in town.
So far we've picked up more than 8" of rain, behind only July 2009 which featured 9.33" of rain for the entire month, and July 1988 which measured 10.38" of rain.
And with more soggy weather ahead, those records may be in jeopardy.
MORE SHOWERS TO START THE WEEK
A soaking rain on Monday will give way to just spotty showers on both Tuesday and Wednesday around town.
Tuesday will still be cool, with temperatures only in the upper 60s, but the air will still have that muggy feel to it with clouds overhead.
Wednesday brings more reasonable daytime temperatures, near 80, as sunshine starts to break out during the afternoon.
Both days will feature plenty of dry times, but still that persistent risk of a couple of showers here or there.
BETTER LATE WEEK
Thursday and Friday finally bring some nicer summer days, with high temperatures in the middle 80s and plenty of sunshine.
The catch is that it will be very muggy, with dew points surginging into the 70s. That will make it feel very tropical outside.
STORM CHANCES RETURN THIS WEEKEND
The brief respite won't last, with storm chances returning as early as Saturday.
A front approaching this weekend will be the trigger for the next round of showers and storms, and that front will gradually drop the humidity over the course of the weekend as well.
