DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 16-20)
First off, if you are a father, then I wish you a Happy Father’s Day! For you and all the others it may be easy to look at your weather app forecast today and think we have a week of rain upcoming, and while we will be in an unsettled pattern during this 5-day period, we will not be getting “5 days of rain” either. A front that settles into the region today will waver around for the next several days, being a helper for showers to form and other areas of wet weather to move across from west to east, as disturbances pass by. We already have the majority of the shower activity to the south as I write this, and while some areas are wet many are dry. This will continue to be the case, and at times the shower threat will expand, while other times it drops off. Most of Monday now looks dry and may even feature more sunshine than I previously expected. It is difficult to time the wet weather episodes as we go through the next several days, so just be ready for it. Right now best guesses place better chances for most widespread shower activity early Tuesday, early Wednesday, and later Thursday.
TODAY: Mostly cloudy. Scattered showers. More humid. Highs 70-77, cooler coastal areas. Wind SW 5-15 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Scattered showers. Patchy fog. Humid. Lows 60-67. Wind light variable.
MONDAY: Partly sunny. Highs 73-80. Wind light variable.
MONDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Numerous showers and a slight risk of thunderstorms, mainly late. Humid. Lows 60-67. Wind light variable.
TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy. Scattered showers/thunderstorms, favoring morning hours. Humid. Highs 73-80. Wind light variable.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Variably cloudy. Slight risk of showers. Humid. Lows 60-67. Wind light variable.
WEDNESDAY: Variably cloudy. Showers likely in the morning. Slight chance of showers thereafter. Highs 73-80. Wind light variable.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 56-63. Wind light variable.
THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy. Showers likely especially late day or nighttime. Highs 70-77. Wind light variable.
DAYS 6-10 (JUNE 21-25)
Wet start, dry finish June 21 as summer officially arrives to below normal temperatures. A seasonably warm and dry weekend follows June 22-23 as high pressure looks like it will be timed just right. Wet weather threat returns June 24 but departs the next day, based on rough timing of systems this far in advance.
DAYS 11-15 (JUNE 26-30)
The trend for late June is west to east flow but more high pressure ridging to the south of New England. This pattern is warm, rain-free most of the time but still carries risk of passing shower/storms at times from jet stream disturbances.
