MONDAY, JUNE 28, Updated Sunday, June 27, 11 AM
SYNOPSIS: A warm front located north of the state, places us in a hot, humid southwesterly breeze. A cold front approaching from the west should help develop potentially strong thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening hours.
AIR QUALITY: Potential exists for elevated ozone readings. Working against this, however, will be a gusty breeze and developing afternoon storms. At this time, we have gone for ozone reaching levels considered unhealthy for sensitive groups for eastern MA, but not including the south coast and Cape Cod where marine air may mix in and keep readings down somewhat. Moderate fine particle readings are expected statewide.
OPEN BURNING: Open burning is prohibited during this time of year.

When I woke up this morning, I thought one of the neighbor’s firepits was still going. I thought “How rude!” Little did I know that the problem was much bigger. This drives home the degree to which we are all one people on one Spaceship Earth. We all live downwind.
