DAYS 1-5 (MAY 31-JUNE 4)
We’ve reached the end of May, and the month is ending on a very dry, breezy and fairly bright note, though today’s sunshine will have to share the sky with passing fair weather clouds, at least for a portion of the day. Still, a very nice way to end the month of May after an early season bout of warmth combined with humidity. The forecast heading into the early days of June remains pretty much as it was on yesterday’s update, including a disturbance crossing the region with a shower threat and even cooler air Monday, a warm front approaching later Tuesday and passing through at night with some wet weather, a warmer Wednesday with a shower or thunderstorm threat as a cold front moves through later in the day, and a return to cooler air once again for Thursday. Additional note: Last night, sky watchers in eastern MA, southeastern NH, RI, and eastern CT were treated to an overhead pass of the International Space Station, and 45 seconds later a pass of the Crew Dragon space capsule, which was launched Saturday afternoon from Florida. The 2 will dock this morning and together will make a visible pass across the sky of southeastern New England just after 9PM this evening, from northwest to southeast (9:04-9:08PM). The sky will be clear for this!
TODAY: Sun and passing clouds. Highs 68-75. Wind NW 10-20 MPH.
TONIGHT: Clear. Lows 40-47. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Variably cloudy. Risk of showers. Highs 61-68. Wind N 10-20 MPH.
MONDAY NIGHT: Clearing. Lows 45-52. Wind N 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY: Sunshine then increasing clouds late. Highs 63-70. Wind variable 5-15 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Risk of rain. Lows 53-60. Wind S up to 10 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy with a risk of showers early morning, then partly sunny. Risk of a late-day shower or thunderstorm. More humid. Highs 72-77. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Risk of a shower early. Lows 53-60. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs 67-74. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
DAYS 6-10 (JUNE 5-9)
Warm front approaches and brings clouds back with a rain threat at some point June 5. Warm sector June 6, warmer and more humid, risk of a shower or thunderstorm. Frontal boundary hanging in the area makes for a tricky temperature forecast and allows for at least lots of cloudiness and perhaps some scattered rainfall in the June 7-8 time frame before it dries out at the end of the period.
DAYS 11-15 (JUNE 10-14)
Leaning toward slightly cooler than average and drier than average during this 5-day period.
