Saturday June 8 2024 Forecast (8:49AM)

DAYS 1-5 (JUNE 8-12)

June’s second weekend will not be as perfect as its first, but also won’t be all that bad! Today is the pick, and Sunday will be the more unsettled day, but not a lost day to weather. Upper level low pressure continues to dominate, and one weak disturbance can fire off a few showers that can quickly move across portions of the region, favoring the first half of the afternoon today. That should be about it. If you have outdoor plans, keep an eye to the sky and check the radar. If you do experience a shower, it should be brief, even if it is on the heavier side. A more formidable disturbance will cross our region Sunday morning and midday. The first band of showers should extend west-to-east and favor areas north of I-90 from pre-dawn to mid morning, followed by one or possibly two broken to potentially solid shower bands that are more oriented north-to-south and sweeping eastward across the region during the midday hours (late morning to early afternoon). A couple of these may contain thunder, so again if you have outdoor plans, keep a close eye on the sky / radar (if you can) and know that your plans have a better shot of being interrupted Sunday than they do today. While clouds may be more plentiful into later Sunday, the shower threat should be absent after 2 p.m., even earlier to the west. Today’s going to feature more wind but also be a touch warmer, due to less cloud cover, compared to Sunday. We remain under the influence of upper level low pressure as it weakens and pulls to the east early in the coming week, with both Monday and Tuesday featuring a sun/cloud mix and a chance of a few showers, but certainly not “wet” days by standard definition. My expectation is that high pressure provides abundant sun for Wednesday while at that time a low pressure area remains well south of New England, off the Mid Atlantic Coast, destined for open ocean and not the Northeast.

TODAY: Clouds entering southwestern NH and north central MA at mid morning will turn the sunny sky elsewhere into a mixed sky by late morning. Cloud/sun intervals this afternoon with the potential for a passing shower mainly between noon and 3 p.m. from west to east. Highs 71-78. Wind W 5-15 MPH, gusts over 20 MPH at times.

TONIGHT: Clouds decrease in the evening before returning overnight. Potential for showers pre-dawn favoring areas north of I-90 / west of I-95. Lows 54-61. Wind W diminishing to under 10 MPH evening, then shifting to S.

SUNDAY: Mainly cloudy with episodic showers favoring areas north of I-90 during the morning, then 1 or 2 rounds of brief but possibly heavier showers and the chance of a thunderstorm from west to east during midday. Partly sunny mid afternoon on. Highs 69-76. Wind S to SE up to 10 MPH morning, S to SW 5-15 MPH afternoon, shifting to W late in the day.

SUNDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 53-60. Wind W up to 10 MPH.

MONDAY: Partly sunny. Chance of a shower. Highs 71-78. Wind W 5-15 MPH.

MONDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 55-62. Wind W 5-15 MPH.

TUESDAY: Partly cloudy. Chance of a shower. Highs 72-79. Wind W 5-15 MPH.

TUESDAY NIGHT: Clearing. Lows 54-61. Wind W up to 10 MPH.

WEDNESDAY: Sunny. Highs 68-75 coast, 75-82 inland. Wind variable up to 10 MPH with coastal sea breezes.

DAYS 6-10 (JUNE 13-17)

A quick warm-up with fair weather as high pressure moves offshore June 13, pushing temperatures above normal. Warmth lingers June 14 but a cold front approaching from the west brings the chance of showers/t-storms. Early outlook is that generally fair weather returns for the June 15-16 weekend into the end of the period as well with seasonable temperatures.

DAYS 11-15 (JUNE 18-22)

The Summer Solstice occurs on June 20. There are some indications of high pressure building offshore and providing our first bout of summer heat right around that time. I do think this will be transitional and part of a more zonal (west to east) flow pattern, so there will likely be changing weather in this time period, not stagnant weather. More detail about this period of time in upcoming posts.

  1. Thanks TK.

    Beautiful day so far. My daughter’s varsity high school softball team has made it to the CT Class S state championship game today at 4pm at UCONN. They are playing Holy Cross high school from Waterbury. Little bit nervous as this will by far be the most people she has ever played in front of!

  2. Good morning and thank you TK.

    Made 79 yesterday with overnight low of 58

    Currently 68

    Ocean Temperature: 62.4 (Boston Buoy)

  3. June 8 1951…

    John Gossen, who lived 6 miles south of Corn, Oklahoma, becomes the first person in the US to capture a tornado on 16mm film, as twin twisters, one estimated as F3, caused damage along a 10-mile path. Several homes and farm buildings were damaged or destroyed. 26 head of cattle and approximately 1,000 chickens were lost in the storm. Debris from the storm’s path was found as far as 90 miles to the east southeast of Corn OK.

  4. Wednesday evening looks perfect for some tailgating in Foxboro before watching TB12 get inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame.

  5. Thank you, TK

    I saw your comment yesterday on Joro and pushback. I’ve seen that too. And hope it’s the beginning of the end. Like you, I believe social media has very positive sides.

    1. I try to focus on that positive side, but my goodness sometimes it gets so frustrating. haha! Just breathe I say to myself and move forward ………… 🙂

      1. Agree. I do the same. I try to stick to family or a really fun group of new fb friends who play Wordle each day. I can stray if a topic catches my attention

    1. Of the little amount that’s left, that slightly brighter, white ice near the west coast of Hudson Bay is the thickest ice remaining.

      As you get to the center and eastern edge of that ice edge, I think the slightly darker look of the ice shows that most of this is thinner ice.

      1. Yup and as you said yesterday that during the next 2-3 months, “cooler” air masses from Canada WON’T be so cool. 🙂

      2. It’s a hypothesis, but if folks want any cool interludes in late July, July, August or early September in New England, it’s going to have to come from tremendous blocking that brings our air off the Labrador current and North Atlantic, because, eastern Canada and Hudson Bay just won’t have the cool source punch they usually do.

        1. I am worried about several episodes of a HEAT DOME over us this Summer. Hope the worry is unfounded.

  6. Checking from my phone, it looks like the big heat shown by the gfs yesterday has gone poof just like the big snows in Winter.

    1. Your granddaughter certainly has a way with animals, to say the least. Does she have any interest in becoming a veterinarian as a career perhaps? Maybe even zoology? 🙂

    2. What kind of dog is that? If it were brown, I would say
      Germain Short Haried pointer, but it is black.
      Beautiful dog. Your grand looks so happy and cute.

      1. They are not sure of breed. Looks like pointer and maybe Jack Russell. She was brought here from Mississippi.

  7. Although it still may rain some here, to me it appears the bulk of the rain will pass North of Boston. and South of the city it may not rain at all.

    1. Boston will get more rain from the tail of the “rainimal” than the body of it. 🙂

      Spoke of the orientation and timing in the blog, which I just posted! Check it out…

  8. As I just mentioned to JP Dave, I’ve posted a new blog. See you there (after I go shopping for my mother that is). 🙂
