Friday Forecast

7:42AM

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 30-JULY 4)
Humid air arrived with a passage of a warm front and will continue into the start of the holiday weekend. A disturbance approaching the region later today will bring the chance of showers and thunderstorms, especially to southern NH and northern MA. A cold front will approach late Saturday and pass through the region during the first half of Sunday with additional shower/thunderstorm opportunities. High pressure builds with later Sunday through Tuesday with great summer weather.
TODAY: Variably cloudy. Isolated showers and thunderstorms possible southern NH and northern MA. Highs 78-85 South Coast, 86-91 elsewhere. Wind SW 10-20 MPH.
TONIGHT: Variably cloudy. Scattered showers/thunderstorms through late evening, favoring southern NH and the northern half of MA. Humid. Lows 65-72. Wind SW 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.
SATURDAY: Partly sunny and hazy. Isolated showers and thunderstorms possible. Humid. Highs 78-86 South Coast, 87-93 elsewhere. Wind SW 10-20 MPH.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Variably cloudy. Chance of showers/thunderstorms, especially overnight. Humid. Lows 65-72. Wind SW 10-20 MPH.
SUNDAY: Variably cloudy morning with a chance of showers/thunderstorms. Mostly sunny afternoon. Humid then drier late. Highs 82-92, coolest South Coast. Wind W 10-20 MPH.
MONDAY: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 60s. Highs from the upper 70s to middle 80s.
TUESDAY – INDEPENDENCE DAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 60s. Highs in the 80s except cooler some coastal areas.

DAYS 6-10 (JULY 5-9)

TODAY: Variably cloudy. More humid late. Highs 75-83. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Variably cloudy. Isolated thunderstorms favoring southern NH and northern MA late. Humid. Lows 65-72. Wind light SW.
FRIDAY: Variably cloudy. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms, some of which may be strong. Humid. Highs 78-85 South Coast, 86-92 elsewhere. Wind SW 10-20 MPH.
SATURDAY: Sunny to partly cloudy. Slight chance of thunderstorms, favoring the late night. Humid. Lows from the upper 60s to middle 70s. Highs from the upper 70s to middle 80s South Coast and upper 80s to lower 90s elsewhere.

DAYS 6-10 (JULY 4-8)
High pressure dominates Tuesday July 4 with drier and seasonably warm summer weather based on current timing. Increasing humidity again July 5-8 with a risk of a few showers and thunderstorms at times as a southwesterly flow returns.

DAYS 11-15 (JULY 9-13)
Some uncertainty continues. Current thinking is fairly muggy weather with occasional showers and thunderstorms, but no long-lasting rain, during this period.

Wednesday Forecast

6:45AM

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 28-JULY 2)
A light westerly will try to bring a sunny, mild, and dry early summer day, but lingering cold air aloft will allow clouds to pop up again, but unlike yesterday, there is not enough of a disturbance to create as many showers and thunderstorms, just a few isolated ones, favoring northern MA and southern NH. Even these areas have a low probability of seeing anything in any particular location. A warm front will push across the region Thursday, opening the door to higher humidity by the end of the day and continuing for the last day of June on Friday and the beginning of July and the start of the holiday weekend, which is loosely defined as Saturday through Tuesday this time.
TODAY: Sunny into late morning then partly cloudy. Isolated showers and thunderstorms favoring northern MA and southern NH this afternoon. Highs 75-83. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 58-64. Wind W up to 10 MPH.
THURSDAY: Variably cloudy. More humid late. Highs 75-83. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Variably cloudy. Isolated thunderstorms favoring southern NH and northern MA late. Humid. Lows 65-72. Wind light SW.
FRIDAY: Variably cloudy. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms, some of which may be strong. Humid. Highs 78-85 South Coast, 86-92 elsewhere. Wind SW 10-20 MPH.
SATURDAY: Sunny to partly cloudy. Slight chance of thunderstorms, favoring the late night. Humid. Lows from the upper 60s to middle 70s. Highs from the upper 70s to middle 80s South Coast and upper 80s to lower 90s elsewhere.
SUNDAY: Variably cloudy. Showers and thunderstorms likely in the morning and midday, diminishing thereafter. Humid. Lows from the upper 60s to middle 70s. Highs in the 80s except cooler South Coast.

DAYS 6-10 (JULY 3-7)
High pressure moves in for Monday July 3 and Tuesday July 4 with drier and seasonably warm summer weather based on current timing. Increasing humidity again July 5-7 with a risk of a few showers and thunderstorms at times as a southwesterly flow returns.

DAYS 11-15 (JULY 8-12)
Some uncertainty so a low confidence forecast here. Current thinking is fairly muggy weather with occasional showers and thunderstorms, but no long-lasting rain, during this period.

Monday Forecast

6:03AM

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 26-30)
The final 5 days of June, and they go something like this… Broad trough ignites diurnal clouds today but showers should stay mainly to the north. A disturbance coming along later Tuesday will bring a better shot at showers and a few thunderstorms, and this should depart Wednesday which turns out drier. Upper low exits and weak ridge moves in Thursday but progressive flow allows a warm front to cross the region Thursday night and early Friday, which may bring a shower or thunderstorm. We will be in a fairly unstable and more humid southwesterly flow Friday so additional storms may be possible. Will have to watch this although it’s too far away for any detail.
TODAY: Sunny start, then a sun/cloud mix. Isolated shower or thunderstorm possible mainly southern NH. Highs 76-83, coolest Cape Cod. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 57-64. Wind light WSW.
TUESDAY: Variably cloudy. Isolated to scattered mainly afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Highs 77-84. Wind SW 10-20 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Variably cloudy evening with scattered showers/thunderstorms. Partly cloudy overnight. Lows 58-64. Wind light SW to W.
WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy morning with a risk of isolated showers favoring Cape Cod, then mostly sunny. Highs 77-84. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy. Risk of a shower/thunderstorm at night. Lows in the 60s. Highs from the upper 70s to lower 80s.
FRIDAY: Partly cloudy. Isolated to scattered showers/thunderstorms. Humid. Lows in the 60s. Highs in the 80s.

DAYS 6-10 (JULY 1-5)
A few episodes of showers/thunderstorms possible over the weekend of Saturday and Sunday July 1 and 2 but not looking for any washouts. Generally dry weather expected for the “extended weekend” Monday through Wednesday July 3 through 5. Temperatures near to above normal.

DAYS 11-5 (JULY 6-10)
Warm to hot, isolated showers/thunderstorms but mainly dry otherwise July 6-8. Better chance of showers/storms later in the period.

Sunday Forecast

10:46AM

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 25-29)
No significant changes on this short update. Will basically press repeat on the discussion to remind you of the mostly nice weather but cooling trend as a broad trough moves through during the next several days. This trough will carry a few disturbances in it, but generally will ignite diurnal clouds and the risk of isolated showers. A more potent disturbance Tuesday night into early Wednesday may bring a more organized round of showers, based on current timing. This trough should be beyond the region by Thursday with a flat ridge moving in resulting in fair and much warmer weather. Will re-evaluate again and a more comprehensive outlook for the last 5 days of June and the “July 4th Weekend” will be on the next update.
TODAY: Mostly sunny morning. Partly sunny with a slight risk of isolated showers afternoon. Highs 78-85. Wind NW 10-20 MPH.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy evening. Mostly clear overnight. Lows 56-63. Wind light NW.
MONDAY: Partly cloudy. Slight risk of a shower. Highs 77-85. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Partly sunny. Showers mainly at night. Lows from the middle 50s to lower 60s. Highs from the middle 70s to lower 80s.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy early with showers, then partly cloudy. Lows from the middle 50s to lower 60s. Highs from the middle 70s to lower 80s.
THURSDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows from the upper 50s to middle 60s. Highs in the 80s except some 70s coastal areas.

DAYS 6-10 (JUNE 30-JULY 4)
A zonal (west to east) flow dominates. A disturbance somewhere around the middle of the period may bring a few showers/thunderstorms otherwise expected mainly dry weather with temperatures near to above normal.

DAYS 11-15 (JULY 5-9)
A similar pattern is expected to continue during this period as well.

Saturday Forecast

9:57AM

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 24-28)
A cold front will move through the region this morning and early afternoon, and running along and ahead of it are the remains of TS Cindy, bringing some significant rain to southern New England, particularly CT, RI, and southeastern MA. The front itself may bring a shower or thunderstorm as it crosses the region behind the rain area. Everything should be offshore by early afternoon, though it may take until mid afternoon to fully clear Cape Cod. The rest of the weekend will be mainly dry with lowering humidity, although there may be just enough instability on Sunday midday and afternoon to pop an isolated shower or two, but don’t cancel any outdoor plans for this remote possibility. Also, astronomically high tides through the weekend may result in some minor coastal flooding. A broad trough of low pressure will move through the region Monday through Wednesday and will bring somewhat cooler air and a few opportunities for showers.
TODAY: Mainly cloudy through early afternoon with rain, moderate to heavy at times including embedded thunder, steadiest in CT, RI, and southeastern MA, spotty and lighter to the northwest, but a risk of a heavier shower/thunderstorm crossing the region from west to east late morning through early afternoon. Decreasing clouds mid afternoon on. Humid, then drying out late. Highs 78-84 South Coast, 84-90 elsewhere. Wind variable 5-15 MPH morning, W to NW 10-20 MPH this afternoon and evening.
TONIGHT: Clear. Lows 57-64. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny morning. Partly sunny with a slight risk of isolated showers afternoon. Highs 78-85. Wind NW 10-20 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy evening. Mostly clear overnight. Lows 56-63. Wind light NW.
MONDAY: Partly cloudy. Slight risk of a shower. Highs 77-85. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Partly sunny. Scattered showers. Lows from the middle 50s to lower 60s. Highs from the middle 70s to lower 80s.
WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy. Isolated showers. Lows from the middle 50s to lower 60s. Highs from the middle 70s to lower 80s.

DAYS 6-10 (JUNE 29-JULY 3)
A zonal (west to east) flow dominates. A disturbance somewhere around the middle of the period may bring a few showers/thunderstorms otherwise expected mainly dry weather with temperatures near to above normal.

DAYS 11-15 (JULY 4-8)
A similar pattern is expected to continue.

Friday Forecast

7:27AM

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 23-27)
Warm front crosses the region today, and humidity increases. Cold front slowly sags through the region tonight and Saturday and some of the moisture from the former TS Cindy comes along it and enhances shower activity. This should clear the region later Saturday and set up a drier Sunday. A broad trough moves into the region early in the week with a cooling trend and some threat of showers.
TODAY: Variably cloudy. Chance of showers/thunderstorms though much of the time will be rain-free. Increasingly humid. Highs 75-81 coast, 82-87 interior. Wind S 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mainly cloudy. Showers likely, some possibly heavy. Chance of thunderstorms. Humid. Lows 64-71. Wind S to SW 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy, episodes of showers and possible thunderstorms, some with heavy rain, tapering off during the afternoon from west to east. Humid. Highs 72-79. Wind SW 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Clearing. Lows 60-67. Wind W 10-20 MPH.
SUNDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 75-82. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Variably cloudy. Chance of showers. Lows in the 60s. Highs in the 70s.
TUESDAY: Variably cloudy. Chance of showers. Lows in the 50s. Highs in the 70s.

DAYS 6-10 (JUNE 28-JULY 2)
A broad trough moves through the region during the first part of the period with episodes of showers and possible thunderstorms favoring June 27-28. Drier weather follows as the trough moves to the east. Temperatures near to below normal through mid period, then warming up.

DAYS 11-15 (JULY 3-7)
Progressive flow should continue but with a little more of a broad ridge moving in, with limited shower chances and temperatures near to above normal.

Thursday Forecast

7:21AM

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 22-26)
High pressure brings great weather today, but don’t get used to it. A warm front crosses the region early Friday and opens the door to humid air which will flow into the region along with a chance of showers and possibly a thunderstorm a couple times during the day Friday. A cold front will approach the region Friday night but may take all day Saturday to cross, allowing moisture associated with the remains of Tropical Storm Cindy from the Gulf of Mexico to become involved. This will increase the threat of significant rain across the region Friday night, areas of which may linger into at least part of Saturday. For now will optimistically say that enough dry air arrives by Sunday for fair weather though some cloudiness may be around. Another trough approaches the region Monday and may bring another risk of showers.
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 76-83. Wind variable 5-15 MPH with coastal sea breezes.
TONIGHT: Increasing clouds. Lows 60-67. Wind light variable.
FRIDAY: Variably cloudy. Chance of showers/thunderstorms though much of the time will be rain-free. Increasingly humid. Highs 75-81 coast, 82-87 interior. Wind S 5-15 MPH.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Mainly cloudy. Showers likely, some possibly heavy. Chance of thunderstorms. Humid. Lows 64-71. Wind S to SW 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy. Chance of showers. Humid. Highs 72-79. Wind SW 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.
SUNDAY: Partly sunny. Lows in the 60s. Highs from the middle 70s to lower 80s.
MONDAY: Variably cloudy. Chance of showers. Lows in the 60s. Highs in the 70s.

DAYS 6-10 (JUNE 27-JULY 1)
A broad trough moves through the region during the first part of the period with episodes of showers and possible thunderstorms favoring June 27-28. Drier weather follows as the trough moves to the east. Temperatures near to below normal through mid period, then warming up.

DAYS 11-15 (JULY 2-6)
Progressive flow should continue but with a little more of a broad ridge moving in, with limited shower chances and temperatures near to above normal.

Wednesday Forecast

3:38AM

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 21-25)
Summer officially arrived at 12:24AM. A cold front will pass through the region today, but will have limited moisture to work with. There will still be a shower and thunderstorm threat from this front, favoring areas along and south of the Mass Turnpike during the afternoon. High pressure moves in with mild and dry weather for Thursday, but the progressive pattern brings the next system in rather quickly and its warm front will pass by in the early hours of Friday opening the door to warmth, humidity, and the risk of showers/thunderstorms on Friday. The weekend remains a bit questionable as I see it. Some of this will depend on remnant moisture from a tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico. I’m not confident yet that a cold front approaching Friday night fully moves off the coast and cleans house for the weekend, so for now I am going to leave the risk of showers in the forecast for the coming weekend.
TODAY: Partly cloudy. Isolated showers and thunderstorms favoring southern MA, CT, and RI during the afternoon. Highs 77-85. Wind W 10-20 MPH, higher gusts.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy early, then clear. Lows 57-64. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
THURSDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 76-83. Wind variable 5-15 MPH with coastal sea breezes.
FRIDAY: Variably cloudy. Chance of showers/thunderstorms. Lows in the 60s. Highs from the upper 70s to middle 80s South Coast, middle 80s to lower 90s elsewhere.
SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy. Chance of showers. Lows in the 60s. Highs in the 70s.
SUNDAY: Variably cloudy. Chance of showers. Lows in the 60s. Highs in the 70s.

DAYS 6-10 (JUNE 26-30)
A broad trough moves through the region during the first half of the period with episodes of showers and possible thunderstorms favoring June 26 and 28. temperatures near to below normal. Fair and warmer weather returns at the end of the period.

DAYS 11-15 (JULY 1-5)
Progressive flow should continue but with a little more of a broad ridge moving in, with limited shower chances and temperatures near to above normal.
