Thursday Forecast

7:27AM

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 23-27)…
A low pressure disturbance and weakening complex of thunderstorms will pass south of New England today and we’ll only see some of the high cloudiness from it, which will be a little thicker along the South Coast for a while. High pressure will move in Friday with great weather then settle to the south during the weekend, which will feature a significant warming trend, with the feel of summer heat before it’s over. By Monday, we’ll add some humidity to the mix as well.
TODAY: Sunniest north, less sun south through midday, then mostly sunny all areas later. Highs in the 70s. Wind variable to N 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows in the 50s. Wind N up to 10 MPH.
FRIDAY: Sunny. Highs from the middle 70s to lower 80s. Wind N to variable 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows from the middle 50s to lower 60s. Highs from the upper 70s to middle 80s.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 60s. Highs from the upper 70s to lower 80s South Coast, middle 80s to lower 90s elsewhere.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. More humid. Lows in the 60s. Highs from the middle 80s to lower 90s except cooler South Coast.

DAYS 6-10 (JUNE 28-JULY 2)…
A weakening frontal boundary in the region and an overall warm and humid pattern will allow for a daily risk of isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms with temperatures near to above normal.

DAYS 11-15 (JULY 3-7)…
Look for mainly dry and warm to hot weather during this period as a high pressure ridge builds in the region.

Wednesday Forecast

3:40AM

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 22-26)…
A disturbance passes by later this morning and early this afternoon from west to east and may kick off a few showers and even thunderstorms with a slight risk of small hail. Severe weather is not expected to occur with this passing system, which will be gone by late in the day. A large part of the day will be rain-free and quite nice. The system producing the rain threat for Thursday is largely dependent on the development and movement of a complex of thunderstorms in the Upper Plains to Upper Midwest, and indications are that this initial batch of thunderstorms will move in such a way that the resulting blob of rain will stay largely south of New England as the energy passes by Thursday morning and midday. High pressure will move in Friday with great weather then settle to the south during the weekend, which will feature a significant warming trend, with the feel of summer heat before it’s over.
TODAY: Variably cloudy through mid afternoon with isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms, some with possible small hail, from late morning to mid afternoon, favoring northern MA into NH. More sunshine later in the day. Highs from the middle 70s to lower 80s. Wind W 10-20 MPH with higher gusts.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear evening. Increasing clouds overnight. Lows from the middle 50s to lower 60s. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy morning and midday with a period of rain possible near the South Coast. Increasing sun later in the day. Highs in the 70s. Wind variable to N 5-15 MPH.
FRIDAY: Sunny. Lows in the 50s. Highs from the middle 70s to lower 80s.
SATURDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows from the middle 50s to lower 60s. Highs from the upper 70s to middle 80s.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 60s. Highs from the upper 70s to lower 80s South Coast, middle 80s to lower 90s elsewhere.

DAYS 6-10 (JUNE 27-JULY 1)…
Fair, very warm, and humid June 27. A weakening front is expected to move into the region and slowly dissipate, but cause a daily risk of isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms for the remainder of the period.

DAYS 11-15 (JULY 2-6)…
Look for mainly dry and warm to hot weather during this period as a high pressure ridge builds in the region.

Tuesday Forecast

3:45PM

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 21-25)…
Drier air has been moving in today behind a front that woke some of you up with its thunderstorms in the early morning hours. But it has been quite warm during the day today with the core of cooler air hanging back and set to pass through tonight and early Wednesday. However this will come along with another disturbance that may trigger a few instability showers/thunderstorms and even possible small hail in any of these from late morning to mid afternoon Wednesday, with the best chance of such activity in northern MA into NH. A disturbance will make a run at southern New England from the west on Thursday, but at this time I’m leaning toward a more strung out system with most of the heavier rain staying to the south, though some of it may impact parts of the region. Will try to fine-tune this on the next update. Behind that system, high pressure will move in with fair and pleasant weather for Friday and Saturday, though Saturday will begin a warm-up.
REMAINDER OF TODAY: Sunshine and a few clouds. Temperatures upper 70s South Coast, 80s elsewhere. Wind W 10-20 MPH with higher gusts.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows from the middle 50s to lower 60s. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Variably cloudy through mid afternoon with isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms, some with possible small hail, from late morning to mid afternoon, favoring northern MA into NH. More sunshine later in the day. Highs from the middle 70s to lower 80s. Wind W 10-20 MPH with higher gusts.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear evening. Increasing clouds overnight. Lows from the middle 50s to lower 60s. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
THURSDAY: Cloudy. Risk of rain southern NH and northern MA, rain likely southern MA, CT, and RI. Highs from the middle 60s to lower 70s. Wind E 5-15 MPH becoming N late.
FRIDAY: Sunny. Lows in the 50s. Highs from the middle 70s to lower 80s.
SATURDAY: Sunny. Lows from the middle 50s to lower 60s. Highs from the upper 70s to middle 80s.

DAYS 6-10 (JUNE 26-30)…
Fair and very warm to hot including more humidity June 26-27 as high pressure settles to the south of New England. A front moves in around June 28 and hangs around but slowly dissipates through June 30 with a daily risk of scattered to isolated showers and thunderstorms including warmth and humidity.

DAYS 11-15 (JULY 1-5)…
Look for mainly dry and warm to hot weather during this period as a high pressure ridge builds in the region.

Monday Forecast

5:44PM

Apologies for the very late update, which was due to circumstances beyond my control. :)

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 20-24)…
My original intent was to make this a longer post than it will turn out, but since it’s so late we’ll just jump to a quick summary and forecast update and reset for tomorrow’s update! With much of today done, you’ve seen that it has felt like summer as the final hours of spring go by. This is due to high pressure in control both surface and aloft. As expected, a low pressure system stayed far offshore and did not impact the region adversely, though had it brought beneficial rain that would have been a positive thing, as much of the region is now borderline or in moderate drought. One shot of rain on Tuesday will be minimized as the cold front is going to come through at the time when heating is near minimum and shower/thunderstorms development is much less likely. High pressure takes control again midweek though a trough in the upper levels and northwest flow at lower levels will make it slightly cooler. The next shot at rain comes Thursday as a wave of low pressure moves eastward, but it still has about a 50/50 shot at passing too far south to bring significant rain into all of the region. For now I’m going to lean toward the wet event but it being on the light side. By Friday, high pressure will be back with dry weather and another brief cooler shot of air.
THROUGH SUNSET: Sunshine and some high clouds. Temperatures 70s coast, 80s interior. Wind S 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Increasing clouds. Chance of showers and thunderstorms mainly southwestern NH, central MA, and eastern CT after 2AM. Lows in the 60s. Wind S to SW 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy in the morning with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms mainly southeastern NH, eastern MA, and RI through mid morning. Clearing in the afternoon. Highs from the upper 70s to middle 80s. Wind SW to W 5-15 MPH with higher gusts.
WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy. Lows from the middle 50s to lower 60s. Highs from the upper 70s to middle 80s.
THURSDAY: Cloudy. Chance of rain, especially southern areas. Lows from the middle to upper 50s. Highs from the upper 60s to lower 70s.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows from the lower to middle 50s. Highs from the middle 70s to lower 80s.

DAYS 6-10 (JUNE 25-29)…
The weekend of June 25-26 will turn warmer with dry weather. June 27 is likely to be fair, warm, and more humid. June 28-29 carries the chance of showers and thunderstorms with warm/humid conditions.

DAYS 11-15 (JUNE 30-JULY 4)…
Brief isolated showers and thunderstorms may occur a couple times otherwise a pattern of mainly dry weather and near to above normal temperatures is expected.

Sunday Forecast

11:04AM

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 19-23)…
And after having a 12 hour window of the PM hours on Tuesday, today I make an adjustment back slightly to account for the increasing chance of a morning to early afternoon cold frontal passage on Tuesday. This would limit the risk for showers and thunderstorms. Will monitor for any changes. Otherwise, high pressure remains dominant today and Monday. Low pressure passes well offshore late Monday and early Tuesday with no impact, then after the cold front a low pressure trough at upper levels and northwest flow at lower levels will deliver some slightly cooler and dry air for Wednesday. A disturbance may come along as early as later Thursday with a risk of some unsettled weather but there is also a shot this system misses to the south late in the week.
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs from the upper 70s South Coast and Cape Cod to the 80s elsewhere. Wind S 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows in the 60s. Wind light SW.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs from the upper 70s to upper 80s, coolest South Coast. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Partly sunny. Chance of showers and thunderstorms from morning through early afternoon. Lows in the 60s. Highs in the 80s.
WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy to mostly sunny. Lows in the 60s. Highs from the upper 70s to middle 80s.
THURSDAY: Partly sunny to mostly cloudy. Lows from the upper 50s to middle 60s. Highs from the middle 70s to lower 80s.

DAYS 6-10 (JUNE 24-28)…
Slight wet weather risk early or middle part of June 24 depending on the track of a disturbance. Fair weather most of the June 25-26 weekend with a warming trend, but a risk of a few showers and thunderstorms late in the weekend. Fair June 27. Showers/thunderstorms possible June 28.

DAYS 11-15 (JUNE 29-JULY 3)…
A mostly dry pattern with limited showers/thunderstorm chances. Temperatures near to above normal.

Saturday Forecast

8:13AM

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 18-22)…
No significant changes today. Still the only rain risk this period comes Tuesday with the passage of a cold front, the timing of which is being slowly nailed down and we now have a 12 hour window of between noon and midnight on Tuesday. Upper level low pressure will indeed stay offshore through Monday far enough to be of essentially no influence and high pressure will be the controlling force until Tuesday’s front arrives, along with a general warming trend. Another high pressure area will move in behind the front with dry weather Wednesday.
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs from the middle 70s to lower 80s but cooling down at the coast during the afternoon. Wind light N to E.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows from the lower 50s interior to upper 50s coast. Wind light SE to S.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs from the upper 70s South Coast and Cape Cod to the 80s elsewhere. Wind S 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows in the 60s. Wind light SW.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs from the upper 70s to upper 80s, coolest South Coast. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Partly sunny. Chance of showers and thunderstorms from late morning through afternoon. Lows in the 60s. Highs in the 80s to lower 90s.
WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy to mostly sunny. Lows in the 60s. Highs from the upper 70s to middle 80s.

DAYS 6-10 (JUNE 23-27)…
A disturbance will bring a chance of some wet weather later June 23 into June 24 with cooling temperatures. Mainly fair and warming temperatures June 25-27.

DAYS 11-15 (JUNE 28-JULY 2)…
Risk of a few showers/thunderstorms early in the period then trending drier again. Temperatures near to above normal.

Friday Forecast

1:57AM

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 17-21)…
High pressure will dominate through at least Sunday and possibly Monday, as low pressure gets pushed well to the south and cuts off, then makes an attempted and probably failed run northward late in the period. It looks like our only rain threat during this 5-day period will be from a cold front moving into the region on Tuesday.
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs from the lower to middle 70s. Wind E to SE 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows from the upper 40s interior valleys to upper 50s shorelines and urban areas. Wind light variable.
SATURDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs from the middle 70s to lower 80s but cooling down at the coast during the afternoon. Wind light N to E.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows from the lower 50s interior to upper 50s coast. Wind light SE to S.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs from the upper 70s South Coast and Cape Cod to the 80s elsewhere. Wind S 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Partly sunny. Lows in the 60s. Highs from the upper 70s to middle 80s.
TUESDAY: Partly sunny. Chance of showers and thunderstorms. Lows in the 60s. Highs in the 80s.

DAYS 6-10 (JUNE 22-26)…
Fair and mild June 22. The next disturbance brings a shower threat later June 23 into June 24 with a cooling trend. Fair with a warming trend June 25-26.

DAYS 11-15 (JUNE 27-JULY 1)…
Risk of a few showers/thunderstorms early in the period then trending drier again. Temperatures near to above normal.

Thursday Forecast

7:36AM

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 16-20)…
High pressure will be in control through Sunday. Elongated low pressure will slide out south of the region through tonight with some high cloudiness. This low cuts off well offshore and eventually may drift close enough to bring some cloudiness and possibly a shower risk in by Monday.
TODAY: Filtered sunshine. Highs from the middle 70s to lower 80s. Wind light N with sea breeze developing.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 50s. Wind light variable.
FRIDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs from the lower to middle 70s. Wind E 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 50s. Highs from the upper 70s to middle 80s.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows from the middle 50s to lower 60s. Highs in the 80s.
MONDAY: Partly sunny. chance of showers. Lows in the 60s. Highs 70s coast, 80s interior.

DAYS 6-10 (JUNE 21-25)…
A broad trough of low pressure will traverse the northeastern US sending a couple fronts through the region with air mass changes and a few rounds of showers and thunderstorms. This may sound like a wet forecast, but rain may be quite limited overall. Temperatures not far from normal overall.

DAYS 11-15 (JUNE 26-30)…
The final days of the month still look like they will present limited shower/thunderstorm chances and mainly dry weather. Temperatures near to above normal.
