The weather, currently.
Meteorological summer began on a cool and damp note with a few showers and even some steadier rain for parts of Boston. Overnight it will be cool with readings down in the 50s and more clouds continue for Thursday although most of the time will be dry. It does look like there's a chance for some more rain Thursday night or Friday before things improved for the weekend. Temperatures will be in the 60s for highs until we get to the weekend when 70s become commonplace. If you're headed to Northern New England on Saturday there is the chance for several showers.

If you’re on the Gulf Coast and don’t have plans this weekend, head over to Baton Rouge for the Gulf Gathering for Climate Justice and Joy. Organizers are planning a two day gathering focused on rejecting the false narratives of extractive industries and imagining a sustainable future for the Third Coast.
“For decades, wealthy corporations have extracted our resources, carved up our swamps and forests, and used our region as the nation’s dumping ground. They have done this while offering false promises of wealth and opportunity. Instead, they have funneled the profits into CEO bonuses and corporate tax havens, leaving us with a rapidly shrinking number of jobs in the oil and gas industry, toxic water and air, and no way to pay to clean up their mess,” organizers write.
“This is a pivotal moment to remind our elected leaders that another future is possible…We can have a future where renewable energy, sustainable agriculture and our cultural economies provide good, healthy jobs that sustain our way of life.”
