Monday Forecast

7:21AM

DAYS 1-5 (MAY 2-6)…
A string of low pressure areas moving along a boundary to the south of New England provides frequently unsettled weather through midweek, then a large upper low parks itself on the East Coast of the US later in the week, continuing the trend.
TODAY: Overcast. Periods of drizzle and areas of fog. Showers likely midday into afternoon, greatest chance northern MA and southern NH. Highs in the 50s. Wind NE 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Cloudy. Patchy drizzle and fog. Isolated showers. Lows in the 40s. Wind light NE.

DAYS 6-10 (MAY 7-11)…
Upper low still in control but may drift far enough to the southeast to lose some of its grip, allowing for at least partial sun and less of a shower risk over the weekend of May 7-8. Not 100% confident of this so check updates. Fair weather more dominant May 9-11 and temperatures a little closer to averages for this time of year.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 12-16)…
Overall trend is for the atmosphere to be less blocked but more progressive again but still no sustained warm weather in this area through mid month. A few episodes of showers possible but not likely any big rain producers.

Thursday Forecast

7:13AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 28-MAY 2)…
Dry weather lasts through Saturday as high pressure, though weak, remains in control and one low pressure area passes by to the south during Friday. The timing of the next system looks a little faster and track a little further north so cloudiness is expected to arrive by Sunday and wet weather by later Sunday or certainly Monday.
TODAY: Sunshine becoming more limited late with increasing high cloudiness. Highs in the middle 50s to lower 60s. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Lows in the 30s. Wind light N to NE.
FRIDAY: Partly sunny. Highs in the middle 50s to lower 60s. Wind E 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY: Partly cloudy. Lows in the middle 30s to lower 40s. Highs in the upper 50s to middle 60s.
SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy. Chance of rain late. Lows in the 40s. Highs in the upper 50s to middle 60s.
MONDAY: Cloudy. Chance of rain. Lows in the 40s. Highs in the 50s.

DAYS 6-10 (MAY 3-7)…
Unsettle weather may break briefly May 3 before returning May 4. Fair weather returning mid to late period, though the confidence level on this part of the forecast is not too high at this point. Temperatures below normal to start the period then milder later in the period.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 8-12)…
Milder early period then cooling again. Episodes of unsettled weather.

Wednesday Forecast

7:05AM

TONIGHT: Clear. Lows in the 30s. Wind light NW.
THURSDAY: Sunny. Highs in the middle 50s to lower 60s. Wind NW to N 5-15 MPH.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 7-11)…
This period may trend milder with a risk of episodic rain showers but this is a low confidence forecast at this time.

Tuesday Forecast

7:19AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 26-30)…
A frontal boundary sinking southward will provide an avenue for a wave of low pressure moving east southeastward across southern New England today. This system will produce wet weather, enhanced by a contrast between cold air sinking down from the north up against a much warmer air mass to the south. High pressure brings fair and cool weather Wednesday, and this high should be strong enough to shunt the next approaching low pressure area to the south Thursday and Friday, keeping southern New England dry not only those days, but also Saturday.
TODAY: Mainly cloudy. Periods of rain through mid afternoon which may include some mix with snow/sleet in southern NH and far northern MA, and embedded heavier showers with a slight risk of thunder especially MA/RI. Highs mostly in the 40s, some upper 30s southern NH and some lower 50s South Coast. Wind variable eventually NE averaging 10-20 MPH with higher gusts.
TONIGHT: Cloudy with patchy light rain/drizzle early, then slow clearing. Lows in the 30s. Wind N 10-20 MPH and gusty.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs in the 50s. Wind N to NW 10-20 MPH with higher gusts.
THURSDAY: Partly sunny. Lows in the 30s. Highs in the 50s.
FRIDAY: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 40s. Highs 55-65.
SATURDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 40s. Highs in the 60s except cooler South Coast.

DAYS 6-10 (MAY 1-5)…
Fair weather May 1. Episodes of unsettled weather May 2-5. Temperatures near to below normal.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 6-10)…
Episodes of unsettled weather. Temperatures below normal.
