Regional Weather Story 
National Weather Service Boston/Norton MA 
715 AM EDT Sun Jun 24 2018 

Today will be mostly cloudy with afternoon temperatures in the upper 
70s to low 80s. The Cape and Islands will likely remain in the low 
70s and upper 60s for the day due to an offshore wind. Showers and 
thunderstorms are likely in the afternoon and evening, especially 
across the interior, and may be accompanied by brief downpours and 
gusty winds.

With a cold front passing through the region late tonight, 
temperatures will be below normal tomorrow with afternoon highs in 
the low 70s. A high pressure will begin to build into the region 
tomorrow morning, following the frontal passage. As a result, west 
of Worcester will see mostly sunny skies, with the eastern coast 
remaining mostly cloudy throughout the day. With the Connecticut 
River Valley seeing less cloud cover, it is possible that they could 
reach into the low 80s.

Looking ahead, temperatures will steadily rise during the week, 
perhaps reaching 90 degrees by Friday. Dry weather will prevail, 
aside from possible showers and thunderstorms Wednesday into 
Thursday.

Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today
..............................
JUNE 24TH...HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1816...
The cold weather of early June finally gave way to several days of 90
degree heat in Massachusetts, including a reading of 99 degrees at Salem.
(David Ludlum)
...1924...
Six men at a rock quarry south of Winston-Salem NC sought shelter from a
thunderstorm. The structure chosen contained a quantity of dynamite.
Lightning struck a near-by tree causing the dynamite to explode. The men
were killed instantly. (The Weather Channel)
...1951...
Twelve inches of hail broke windows and roofs, and dented automobiles,
causing more than fourteen million dollars damage. The storm plowed 200
miles from Kingmand County KS into Missouri, with the Wichita area hardest
hit. It was the most disastrous hailstorm of record for the state of
Kansas. (David Ludlum)
...1952...
Thunderstorms produced a swath of hail 60 miles long and 3.5 miles wide
through parts of Hand, Beadle, Kingsbury, Miner and Jerauld counties in
South Dakota. Poultry and livestock were killed, and many persons were
injured. Hail ten inches in circumference was reported at Huron SD. (The
Weather Channel)
