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.

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

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 27-MAY 1)…
Dry and cool pattern in control as high pressure to the north successfully holds off attempts by low pressure areas passing to the south to move far enough north to impact southern New England.
TODAY: Sunny. Highs in the middle 50s to lower 60s. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Clear. Lows in the 30s. Wind light NW.

Will watch low pressure to the south for potential impact May 2-4, though it may stay to the south. Fair weather later in the period. Temperatures near to below normal.

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.

Monday Forecast

7:24AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 25-29)…
No big changes overall but some tweaks. Cloudiness today as a boundary sets up over the region. Wet weather Tuesday as low pressure rides along this boundary. Fair weather Wednesday as high pressure moves in. Another area of low pressure approaches later in the week but may stay far enough south to keep much of the region dry or just bring brief wet weather to southern areas.
TODAY: Mostly cloudy. Highs middle 50s to lower 60s, coolest Cape Cod. Wind light variable.
TONIGHT: Cloudy. Rain developing overnight. Lows in the 40s. Wind light variable becoming N to NE 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Overcast. Periods of rain and drizzle. Ice pellets may mix in at times in southern NH and extreme northern MA. Areas of fog. Temperatures steady in the 40s. Wind NE 5-15 MPH with gusts 15-25 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Cloudy with rain tapering off evening. Clearing overnight. Lows in the 30s. Wind NE to N 10-20 MPH with higher gusts.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs in the 50s. Wind N to NW 10-20 MPH with higher gusts.
THURSDAY: Increasing clouds. Risk of rain southern areas late. Lows in the 30s. Highs in the 50s.
FRIDAY: Risk of rain southern areas early. Decreasing clouds. Lows in the 40s. Highs 55-65.

DAYS 6-10 (APRIL 30-MAY 4)…

Sunday Forecast

1:51AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 24-28)…
High pressure dominates today into Monday with fair and cooler weather today and milder weather much of Monday, though a frontal boundary will slip down from the north during Monday, cooling southern NH and northern MA by day’s end. This boundary will continue to settle southward at night and a wave of low pressure will move along it bringing wet weather which will last into Tuesday. High pressure builds in as this wave departs Tuesday night and sets up fair weather for Wednesday. Timing the next low pressure wave may be a bit difficult, but it may arrive later Thursday.
TODAY: Sunny. Highs in the 50s to lower 60s. coolest Cape Cod, mildest interior MA and southern NH. Wind light variable early, then N to NE 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows in the middle 30s to lower 40s. Wind light variable.
MONDAY: Variably cloudy. Highs in the middle 50s to lower 60s. Wind S 5-15 MPH.

THURSDAY: Increasing clouds. Lows in the middle 30s to lower 40s. Wind in the upper 50s to middle 60s.

DAYS 6-10 (APRIL 29-MAY 3)…
Based on current expected timing, showers depart on April 29 and fair weather takes over late in the day through the weekend of April 30 and May 1. Unsettled weather returns late in the period. Temperatures near to below normal.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 4-8)…
Unsettled weather is most likely to start and end the period with fair weather between. Temperatures near to below normal.

Saturday Forecast

8:39AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 23-27)…
Front slow to exit leaves today unsettled for a while but improvement comes slowly from northwest to southeast, first to reach north central MA and southern NH, lastly reaching Cape Cod. High pressure makes Sunday nice! A frontal system and wave of low pressure brings some wet weather by Monday evening and into Tuesday. High pressure builds in with fair weather by Wednesday.

Friday Forecast

7:33AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 22-26)…
Happy Earth Day to all! No big changes today as we have a primary and secondary cold front to come through tonight and early Saturday with some showers and possibly a few thunderstorms later today and some lingering cloudiness and perhaps a shower early Saturday, then high pressure taking over later Saturday through Sunday. Optimistic for being on the warmer side of a boundary for much of Monday, then having it sink to the south delivering wet and cooler weather by Tuesday.
TODAY: Mostly cloudy to partly sunny. Risk of a few showers and possibly a thunderstorm mainly interior MA and southern NH late in the day. Highs 60s South Coast, 70s elsewhere. Wind SW 10-20 MPH and gusty.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Scattered to numerous showers. Slight chance of thunderstorms. Lows in the 50s. Wind SW to W 5-15 MPH but gusty at times.
SATURDAY: Variably cloudy but more sun with time. Scattered to isolated showers favoring southeastern MA morning and midday. Highs around 60. Wind W to NW 10-20 MPH and gusty.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 40s. Highs in the 50s.
MONDAY: Variably cloudy. Chance of showers. Lows in the 40s. Highs in the 50s north, 60s south.
TUESDAY: Cloudy. Chance of rain mainly morning. Lows 35-45. Highs 45-55.

DAYS 6-10 (APRIL 27-MAY 1)…
Generally fair April 27-30, temperatures near to below normal. Possible showers and milder May 1.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 2-6)…
A couple systems bring passing rain chances. Temperatures below to near normal.

Thursday Forecast

7:28AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 21-25)…
High pressure sinks to the south today and and cold front waits until late Friday night or early Saturday morning to pass, and this allows for 2 much warmer days. Most of the shower activity with the front will occur Friday night, leaving the day mainly rain-free and hinting at a Summer preview as humidity increases ahead of the front. The front itself may be slow to depart Saturday leaving some cloudiness around and a risk of a few showers as well, but it will end up generally dry and a little cooler as the day goes on. A small area of high pressure will bring mainly dry weather much of Sunday but an approaching warm front may bring some rain as early as Sunday night. Not sure yet if this front stays nearby or lifts to the north and allows it to warm up Monday. Jury’s out on this part of the forecast for now.
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs upper 50s South Coast ranging to lower 70s many interior areas. Wind SW increasing to 10-20 MPH with higher gusts.
TONIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy. Lows in the upper 40s to middle 50s. Wind SW 5-15 MPH and gusty.
FRIDAY: Partly to mostly cloudy. Risk of a few showers and possibly a thunderstorm mainly interior MA and southern NH late in the day. Highs 60s South Coast, 70s elsewhere. Wind SW 10-20 MPH and gusty.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Scattered to numerous showers. Slight chance of thunderstorms. Lows in the 50s. Wind SW to W 5-15 MPH but gusty at times.
SATURDAY: Variably cloudy but more sun with time. Scattered to isolated showers. Highs around 60. Wind W to NW 10-20 MPH and gusty.
SUNDAY: Partly sunny. Lows in the 40s. Highs in the 50s.
MONDAY: Variably cloudy. Chance of showers. Lows in the 40s. Highs in the 50s.
