Tuesday Forecast

7:14AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 30-MAY 4)
Back to the dominant unsettled weather pattern for the next 5 days with waves of low pressure keeping clouds and occasional wet weather around. We do get breaks, like tomorrow, which will be mostly dry with some sunshine as well, and possibly part of Saturday, which may see stronger high pressure push the wet weather to the south for a time.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Mostly cloudy. Periods of rain morning. Highs 48-55. Wind light variable.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 38-45. Wind light variable.
WEDNESDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 55-62, coolest coast. Wind light variable
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Chance of light rain/drizzle. Lows 45-52. Wind light variable to NE.
THURSDAY: Cloudy. Chance of rain/drizzle morning. Temperatures steady 45-52. Wind light NE.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Chance of rain/drizzle. Lows 40-47. Wind light NE.

DAYS 6-10 (MAY 5-9)
Unsettled pattern overall but hard to tell which days stand the greatest chance of wet weather at this point. Temperatures start out below normal then trend milder.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 10-14)
Another boundary-to-the south, cooler and somewhat unsettled period is possible here. Low confidence forecast. The pattern can break at any time as model guidance tends to not see that coming.

Monday Forecast

6:40AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 29-MAY 3)
Today will be the nicest day of the next 5, with high pressure in control, but in the pattern we are in, it won’t last, with clouds already arriving later in the day, and wet weather tonight into Tuesday morning, as a small area of low pressure crosses the region west to east. A small bubble of high pressure brings some clearing Tuesday night into early Wednesday as May begins, but we’re back in the dank tank again later Wednesday through Friday as a frontal boundary sits to the south and waves of low pressure ripple along it, keep us cool and damp.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Sunny, fading behind high clouds later. Highs 55-60 coast, 60-65 interior. Wind NW 5-15 MPH becoming light variable with sea breezes.
TONIGHT: Clouding over evening. Cloudy overnight with a chance of rain. Lows 40-47. Wind light variable.
TUESDAY: Cloudy. Chance of rain morning. Highs 48-55. Wind E 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 38-45. Wind light NE.
WEDNESDAY: Partly sunny morning. Mostly cloudy afternoon. Chance of light rain late. Highs 55-62, coolest South Coast. Wind S 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Chance of light rain/drizzle. Lows 45-52. Wind light variable to NE.
THURSDAY: Cloudy. Chance of rain/drizzle. Highs 48-55. Wind light NE.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Chance of rain/drizzle. Lows 40-47. Wind light NE.
FRIDAY: Cloudy. Chance of rain/drizzle. Highs 48-55. Wind light NE.

DAYS 6-10 (MAY 4-8)
High pressure may sneak in for a nice May 4 before low pressure brings more wet weather for May 5. Clearing and a quick cool shot behind that for May 6 and a warming trend with some cloudiness at times for May 7-8, eventually a risk of rain showers by May 8.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 9-13)
Another boundary-to-the south, cooler and somewhat unsettled period is possible here. Low confidence at this time.

Sunday Forecast

7:27AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 28-MAY 2)
Weak low pressure moves rapidly across the region today, with its track suppressed slightly to the south which will limit rainfall in areas north of the Mass Pike, although to the south it won’t be too significant a rain event either. A similar system comes along with the rain timed for the first 12 hours of Tuesday. High pressure tries to build in for a break on May 1 but the boundary nearby again by the end of the period means additional risk of cool and unsettled weather.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Clouding over. Rain arrives west to east midday through afternoon. Highs 50-57. Wind light variable.
TONIGHT: Cloudy evening with rain ending west to east. Clearing overnight. Lows 35-42. Patchy frost. Wind variable 5-15 MPH becoming N.
MONDAY: Sunny. Highs 55-60 coast, 60-65 interior. Wind NW 5-15 MPH becoming light variable with sea breezes.
MONDAY NIGHT: Clouding over evening. Cloudy overnight with a chance of rain. Lows 40-47. Wind light variable.
TUESDAY: Cloudy. Chance of rain morning. Highs 48-55. Wind E 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Lows 40-47. Wind light NE.
WEDNESDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 55-62, coolest South Coast. Wind S 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Lows 45-52. Wind light variable.
THURSDAY: Cloudy. Chance of rain. Highs 48-55. Wind light NE.

DAYS 6-10 (MAY 3-7)
Wave of low pressure passes just to the south with a wet/cool day possible May 3 then low pressure departs for a dry but cooler May 4-5 weekend. More wet/cool weather possible about May 6 before it warms up a little at the end of the period.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 8-12)
Overall pattern doesn’t change much, temperatures cooler than average overall with a risk of a few episodes of wet weather.

Saturday Forecast

2:16AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 27-MAY 1)
In the pre-dawn hours of today, numerous rain showers and embedded thunderstorms will be tapering off from southwest to northeast, and then
low pressure departs today, leaving behind blustery conditions with lots of clouds and a slight risk of a passing instability rain shower. Another low pressure area races out of the Great Lakes and across southern New England by late Sunday with some generally light rainfall, but the air may be cold enough toward the end of the event to cause the precipitation to mix with snow northwest of Boston before ending. High pressure moves in for the one and only fair weather day of this 5-day period on Monday, which can only mean unsettled weather returns as a frontal boundary sets up shop in the region Tuesday and Wednesday to end April and begin May.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Mostly cloudy. Isolated rain showers. Highs 50-57. Wind SW 10-20 MPH, gusting as high as 30 MPH.
TONIGHT: Clearing evening. Increasing clouds overnight. Lows 38-45. Wind W 10-20 MPH early, diminishing thereafter.
SUNDAY: Thickening overcast. Rain arrives west to east midday through afternoon. Highs 50-57. Wind light variable.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Cloudy evening with rain, may mix with snow north and west of Boston before ending. Clearing overnight. Lows 35-42. Wind variable 5-15 MPH becoming N.
MONDAY: Sunny. Highs 55-60 coast, 60-65 interior. Wind NW 5-15 MPH becoming light variable with sea breezes.
MONDAY NIGHT: Increasing clouds. Lows 40-47. Wind light variable.
TUESDAY: Cloudy. Chance of rain. Highs 48-55. Wind E 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Lows 40-47. Wind light NE.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy. Chance of rain. Highs 48-55. Wind NE 5-15 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (MAY 2-6)
The boundary between Canadian chill and southeastern US warmth will be nearby early period with cool/damp weather, then low pressure may get just east of the region and pull down some unseasonably chilly air for the May 4-6 period.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 7-11)
Some temperature recovery is likely but additional unsettled weather is also expected as the overall pattern doesn’t change that much.

Friday Forecast

9:02AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 26-30)
The final 5 days of April, a month that has been frequently unsettled but mild, will continue the unsettled pattern but start to tilt the temperature scale to a lower level as we see cooler weather overall. The unsettled weather will be here today in the form of warm frontal rain morning and midday and cold frontal showers and possible thunderstorms later today and especially tonight. As low pressure intensifies while moving into eastern Canada, the back side will bring blustery weather for Saturday with a gusty wind, cool air, and although most wet weather will be gone pre-dawn, there still may be a passing shower triggered by cold air aloft. Often times after a day like that, high pressure would settle in for nice weather the next day, but not this time. Another, albeit smaller, low pressure area will come racing along for more unsettled weather Sunday, and it may end up cold enough Sunday night before the precipitation exits that it may end up mixed with some frozen stuff in areas north and west of Boston, especially higher elevations. This will then lead to the only really nice day in the 5-day forecast period, Monday, which will feature plenty of sun which will feel nice even though the air will be on the cool side. A warm front will be moving in by Tuesday with more clouds and potential wet weather.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Cloudy. Periods of rain morning and midday. Isolated to scattered rain showers afternoon. Highs 48-55. Wind light SE.
TONIGHT: Cloudy. Rain showers likely. Possible thunder. Temperatures rise to 53-60. Wind S 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.
SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy to partly sunny. Isolated rain showers. Temperatures steady 53-60. Wind W to NW 10-20 MPH, higher gusts possible.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 42-49. Wind NW 10-20 MPH, diminishing.
SUNDAY: Clouding over. Rain likely from mid afternoon on. Highs 55-62. Wind variable 5-15 MPH becoming SE.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Cloudy evening with rain, may mix with snow north and west of Boston before ending. Clearing overnight. Lows 35-42. Wind variable 5-15 MPH becoming N.
MONDAY: Sunny. Highs 55-60 coast, 60-65 interior. Wind NW 5-15 MPH becoming light variable with sea breezes.
MONDAY NIGHT: Increasing clouds. Lows 40-47. Wind light variable.
TUESDAY: Cloudy. Chance of rain. Highs 48-55. Wind E 5-15 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (MAY 1-5)
The boundary between Canadian chill and southeastern US warmth will be nearby. This is an unsettled pattern and for this area likely near to below normal temperatures.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 6-10)
Little change to the overall pattern of DAYS 6-10 to start, then may try to reverse and go milder and less unsettled.

Thursday Forecast

7:15AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 25-29)
High pressure brings great April weather today with mild temperatures except for the typical cooler coastal areas due to a sea breeze. Unsettled weather returns during Friday as a low pressure area approaches from the west, bringing a warm front through during the morning and midday followed by a cold front during the night and early Saturday. The upper level trough driving this system looks like it may be in no hurry to get out of here, prolonging showery weather well into Saturday, along with gusty wind and chilly air. And just as that system finally exits, another will arrive on its heals Sunday, although that particular disturbance will be smaller and may get pushed somewhat to the south, so the coverage of rainfall may be less. High pressure returns with more nice weather by Monday.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 55-62 coast, 62-69 interior, but cooling back especially coastal areas afternoon. Wind light variable with sea breezes.
TONIGHT: Increasing clouds. Lows 48-55. Wind light SE.
FRIDAY: Cloudy. A period of rain morning. Isolated rain showers afternoon. Highs 55-62 coast, 62-69 interior occurring late in the day. Wind SE 5-15 MPH shifting to SW with higher gusts.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Rain showers likely. Possible thunder. Lows 45-52. Wind S 10-20 MPH shifting to SW.
SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy. Scattered rain showers. Highs 52-59. Wind W to NW 10-20 MPH, higher gusts..
SATURDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 42-49. Wind NW 10-20 MPH.
SUNDAY: Clouding over. A period of rain or showers possible. Highs 56-63. Wind variable 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Cloudy. Rain, may mix with snow north and west of Boston before ending. Lows 35-42. Wind variable 5-15 MPH becoming N.
MONDAY: Clearing. Highs 55-60 coast, 60-65 interior. Wind NW 5-15 MPH becoming light variable with sea breezes.

DAYS 6-10 (APRIL 30-MAY 4)
The boundary between Canadian chill and southeastern US warmth will be nearby. This is an unsettled pattern with uncertain temperatures. Details unknown until much closer to these days.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 5-9)
Little change to the overall pattern of DAYS 6-10 is expected during this time.

Wednesday Forecast

7:35AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 24-28)
A cold front moved through the region overnight with more wet weather, and some low level moisture is trapped in the region early this morning, but a drying trend will be underway soon, and later today through Thursday will be decent as high pressure takes over the weather. But as advertised, the next low pressure area will be quick to move in and bring more wet weather Friday to early Saturday, leaving behind drier but blustery conditions for Saturday. The next unsettled weather system arrives Sunday but does not look too impressive right now.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Cloudy start with areas of fog and drizzle, then clearing. Highs 61-68. Wind light variable early then W increasing to 10-20 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 40-47. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
THURSDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 60-67, except cooler Cape Cod. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Increasing clouds. Lows 48-55. Wind light SE.

SATURDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 42-49. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Clouding over. A period of rain or showers possible. Highs 56-63. Wind variable 5-15 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (APRIL 29-MAY 3)
Dry, cooler April 29. Transition with clouds and potential light rain April 30 or May 1 with a chance of getting into a warmer air mass. Probably back to the cool side of a boundary thereafter with some additional unsettled weather possible.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 4-8)
Expecting the region to be near a boundary between warmth to the south and cool air to the north, with additional unsettled weather at times and a continued uncertain temperature forecast.

Tuesday Forecast

7:00AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 23-27)
Low pressure drifts slowly away to the east today, and although there will be a slight drying process it will stay generally overcast. A frontal system crosses the region west to east in the early hours of Wednesday with more unsettled weather, followed by some improvement later Wednesday and Thursday as high pressure approaches then moves over the region. The active pattern means the next low pressure system will be quick to move in during Friday with more unsettled weather, and although this should move on out of the area by Saturday, it will do so while intensifying, so the drying weather will also be cool and breezy.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Cloudy. Periods of rain and drizzle, especially in the morning. Highs 53-60 except 60-67 southwestern NH and central MA. Wind NE to N 5-15 MPH, shifting to E later.
TONIGHT: Cloudy. Rain showers likely. Lows 43-50. Wind variable 5-15 MPH.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 40-47. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
THURSDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 63-70, cooler Cape Cod. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Increasing clouds. Lows 48-55. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy with rain showers. Highs 58-65, coolest Cape Cod. Wind SW 10-20 MPH.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy with rain showers. Lows 45-52. Wind variable 5-15 MPH.
SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy with rain showers early, then sun/cloud mix. Highs 53-60. Wind NW 15-25 MPH.

DAYS 6-10 (APRIL 28-MAY 2)
Lots of transitions as one system moves through with a rain shower threat April 28 followed by a quick shot of fair and cooler weather for April 29, then a warm front lifts through April 30 or May 1 with a warming trend but some additional unsettled weather before the front drops back to the south again with a cool-down. Of course timing is approximate this far in advance.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 3-7)
May end up near a boundary between warm air to the south and lingering Canadian cold, leaving the door open for unsettled weather and an uncertain temperature forecast.

Monday Forecast

7:42AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 22-26)
Earth Day 2019. Locally we will see more greening up. We need rain to help that, right? Right. We’ll see it off and on this week, which will be rather unsettled. But we’ve been on the mild to warm side of late, but the next few days will be somewhat cooler. Low pressure forms offshore and moves up across eastern New England today and tonight, slowly departing Tuesday, as upper level low pressure crosses the region. Another low will pass north of the region Wednesday and send its cold front through here, and the next in a series of systems is due on Friday with more unsettled weather. Thursday may be the only day in this 5-day stretch without the threat of at least some rainfall. Forecast details…

DAYS 6-10 (APRIL 27-MAY 1)
Gusty breeze, cooler, but mainly dry or isolated rain showers April 27. Next low pressure systems brings wet weather threat April 28. Fair, breezy, cooler to end April with a milder trend by the end of the period to start May.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 2-6)
May end up near a boundary between warm air to the south and lingering Canadian cold, leaving the door open for unsettled weather and an uncertain temperature forecast.

Sunday Forecast

7:27AM

DAYS 1-5 (APRIL 21-25)
No big changes for this update. Unsettled pattern continues, though not excessively wet. We’ll also see a slight cooling trend the next couple days as upper level low pressure arrives Monday and hangs around into Tuesday before being replaced with another one on Wednesday, finally exiting Thursday when there should be a completely dry day for the region.
Forecast details…

THURSDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 58-65 coast, 65-72 interior. Wind light W but coastal sea breezes likely.

DAYS 6-10 (APRIL 26-30)
A slight adjustment to a more progressive set-up with wet weather more likely April 26 and improvement during the April 27-28 weekend, then a mainly fair and somewhat milder end to the month.

DAYS 11-15 (MAY 1-5)
Fair, mild start, unsettled episode, then a cooler trend, is the current low confidence call.
