DAYS 1-3 (JUNE 28-30)…
This covers the final 3 days of June, 2 of which will carry unsettled weather as a cold front slowly passes through the region today and Wednesday with a few episodes of showers and thunderstorms. The greatest chance of activity comes first thing today over RI, eastern MA, and southeastern NH, tonight anywhere in the region, and favoring eastern areas Wednesday. Though a few downpours may occur, a widespread beneficial rain is not very likely. High pressure will move in during Thursday and provide some very pleasant summer weather.

DAYS 8-15 (JULY 5-12)…
Transitional pattern during this time with a warm to hot and dry start for the first couple to few days, a risk of showers/thunderstorms mid period with a trough passage, and a shift back to warm to hot conditions by the end of the period as the jet stream lifts a bit to the north and a ridge of high pressure builds in the upper Midwest to Great Lakes.

Monday Forecast

7:32AM

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 27-JULY 1)…
High pressure hangs on today with sunshine and warmer air and an increase in humidity as well. A slow-moving cold front will take 2 days to cross the region Tuesday and Wednesday with several opportunities for scattered showers and thunderstorms. Widespread and beneficial rainfall is still unlikely with this frontal passage, however. High pressure pushes in Thursday and Friday with a return to fair weather.

Frontal system looks a little faster, early to mid part of July 2, with a few showers and thunderstorms possible, then a return to fair weather which lasts the remainder of the period. temperatures fairly close to seasonal averages.

DAYS 11-15 (JULY 7-11)…
Shower and thunderstorm threat returns later July 7 through July 8 with the next disturbance then fair weather returns again. Temperatures near to above normal and watching the possibility of some increased heat.

Sunday Forecast

7:33AM

No shift in overall thinking of how things take place during the final 5 days of June. High pressure dominates with a warming trend and slight increase in humidity through Monday. A slow-moving cold front moves through and gradually weakens Tuesday and Wednesday with a risk of showers and thunderstorms, though the risk of widespread beneficial rain from this is quite low.

High pressure dominates the next 3 days with a warming trend. Dry air will be the rule through much of Sunday, but humidity will increase Sunday night and Monday.

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.

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.
