Sunday Forecast

7:46AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 30-MAY 4)
High pressure and a cooler air mass is the story for southern New England today, though advancing warm air aloft and some mid level instability may support some showers into western areas this afternoon. Warm front comes across southern New England Monday, followed by a cold front Monday night and early Tuesday, and high pressure Wednesday. The next low pressure area approaches Thursday. The resultant weather expected is broken down in the next several lines.
TODAY: Partly sunny. A few showers possible mainly CT and central MA by mid afternoon. Highs 52-57 coast, 57-62 interior. Wind N 5-15 MPH shifting to E.
TONIGHT: Mainly cloudy. Chance of light rain mainly after midnight. Lows 44-51. Wind light E.
MONDAY: Mainly cloudy. Chance of light rain. Highs 55-60 coast, 60-65 interior. Wind light SE shifting to S 10-20 MPH late.
MONDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Showers likely. Chance of thunderstorms. Lows 50-55. Wind S 10-20 MPH shifting to W by dawn.
TUESDAY: Partly cloudy. Chance of showers early. Highs 65-70 South Coast, 70-75 elsewhere. Wind W 10-20 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows from the middle 40s to lower 50s. Highs from the upper 50s to middle 60s, coolest East Coast.
THURSDAY: Increasing clouds. Lows from the upper 40s to middle 50s. Highs in the 60s.

DAYS 6-10 (MAY 5-9)
Watching for a possible significant rain event somewhere early in the period and a persistent upper low that would keep the weather unsettled through the period.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 10-14)
Somewhat milder/drier weather expected. Continued low confidence forecast.

Saturday Forecast

10:52AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 29-MAY 3)
As April turns to May, we have a bit of a tricky forecast situation coming. But first, a weekend that will be fairly decent, though will exhibit 2 distinctive feels. Today, a taste of summer. A cold front will come through later and may trigger a shower near the South Coast but otherwise its main impact will be to bring much cooler weather for Sunday. This front will then attempt to come back north as a warm front Monday, but probably won’t fully get through here until Tuesday. So Monday’s forecast is a little tricky. There should be a lot of clouds and some wet weather, and for now I will lean to the cooler side with the front taking its time. The warmer weather should be back by Tuesday, only to be pushed out once again Wednesday as a slightly cooler airmass comes down from Canada.
TODAY: Partly sunny. An isolated shower possible South Coast. Highs 65-73 South Coast, 74-83 elsewhere. Wind W 10-20 MPH.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 45-52. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 52-57 coast, 57-62 interior. Wind N 5-15 MPH shifting to E.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Mainly cloudy. Chance of light rain after midnight. Lows 44-51. Wind light E.
MONDAY: Mainly cloudy. Chance of light rain. Highs 52-57 coast, 57-62 interior. Wind light SE.
TUESDAY: Partly cloudy. Lows from the upper 40s to middle 50s. Highs from the middle 60s to middle 70s, coolest South Coast.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows from the middle 40s to lower 50s. Highs from the upper 50s to middle 60s, coolest East Coast.

DAYS 6-10 (MAY 4-8)
Watching for a possible significant rain event somewhere early to mid period and a persistent upper low that would keep the weather unsettled through the period. Much fine-tuning to come.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 9-13)
Exit of upper low should be folloed by somewhat milder and drier weather, but low confidence forecast at this time.

Wednesday Forecast

7:36AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 26-30)
The final 5 days of April will present a few different kinds of weather generally typical for this time of year, first the continued damp/cool variety today as low pressure continues to coming up the East Coast, weakening, then the clouds-hanging-on variety tomorrow as the nearly dissipated low is slow to depart. After that the warmer southwesterly flow takes over but clouds will still be dominant Friday as a trough moves through from the west and possibly kicks off a few showers. We do get a summer preview again on Saturday with more sun but still a risk of a shower or thunderstorm ahead of a stronger cold front which will open the door to high pressure from Canada, but centered far enough east that the wind will come in from the north to northeast Sunday with much cooler but dry weather.
