Temps Remain Steady, Big Warm Up Next Week

Great sleeping weather is on the weather menu again tonight. So crack open those windows and give the A/C a break.

Friday starts off sunny. But clouds will bubble up in the afternoon as disturbance swings through Southern New England. A shower or thunderstorm is possible in a few towns with the chance for small hail. Saturday looks like the pick of the weekend with partly cloudy skies. Sunday isn’t a washout. But there is a chance for a few morning showers or an afternoon thunderstorm.
If you are a fan of the 80s with low humidity, enjoy the next several days. Heat builds with 90s in the forecast by Tuesday or Wednesday. A heat wave is in the forecast!

Tonight: Clearing, comfy sleeping weather. Low: 55-60.

Tomorrow: Sunshine mixing with afternoon clouds. Slight chance for a shower or thunderstorm in the afternoon. But most towns will stay dry. High: 82-84.

Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny. High: 82-85.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy. Chance for showers in the morning. Then a shower or thunderstorm in spots during the afternoon. High: 79-82.

Monday: Partly sunny, warmer. Chance for an afternoon shower or thunderstorm. High: 84-87.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny and very warm. High: 85-90.

Showers Saturday, Summer Heat Sunday

The humidity makes a comeback this weekend. A warm front will keep skies mostly cloudy on Saturday along with the chance for a shower or two.  There’s no need to cancel outdoor plans. But keep in mind that you may have to step inside briefly if a shower moves over your town.

While Saturday is not a wash out, there’s no question that Sunday is a better beach day. You may want to start reserving your spot in the sand now. We could hit 90 degrees (or warmer) for the first time this summer! There is a chance for an isolated late day storm on Sunday. But most towns will stay dry.  There is a better chance for thunderstorms Sunday night and Monday. Some could be strong, followed by less humid conditions on Tuesday.

Summer heat remains into the middle of next week with temperatures flirting with 90 degrees several days in a row.


Tonight: Becoming a bit more humid. Chance for a shower, especially towards daybreak. Low: 65-70.

Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy, chance for a few showers or an isolated thunderstorm. High: 78-83.

Sunday: Partly sunny, hot and humid. Chance for an isolated late day shower or thunderstorm.  High: 85-93.

Monday: Partly cloudy, thunderstorms likely. Some could be strong. High: 83-87.

Tuesday: Sunny, warm and less humid. High: 84-89.

Wednesday: Hot without the humidity. High: 85-90. Chance for a late day shower or thunderstorm.

Heavy Downpours, Thunder Wednesday

Scattered downpours and patchy fog are in store for tonight with lows around 70 degrees.

Wednesday will remain humid with temperatures around 80 degrees. Showers and thunderstorms will be more widespread than they were on Tuesday. While we are not expecting severe weather, any storm that develops has the potential to cause some minor poor drainage flooding. Most of the storms will fire up in the late morning through the afternoon. By the evening commute showers will be tapering or ending with some clearing possible late day.

Gorgeous weather returns on Thursday and Friday, with sunshine, low humidity, and temperatures around 80. While a warm up is possible this weekend, so is the threat for some wet weather. There is still a lot of uncertainty for Sunday. We'll keep you posted!

Forecast Details
Tonight: Scattered showers, mild, patchy fog. Low temperatures near 70.
Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy, humid with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Storms will not be severe but could cause minor flooding. High temperatures in the upper 70s to low 80s.
Thursday: Mostly sunny, less humid and pleasant. High temperatures in the upper 70s to around 80 degrees.
Friday: Mostly sunny, pleasant. High temperatures in the low 80s.
Saturday: Partly cloudy. High temperatures in the low to mid 80s. Chance for a shower or thunderstorm in the evening.
Sunday: A mix of clouds and sun. Chance for a shower or thunderstorm. High temperatures in the 80s.

Dreary 4th, Summery Sunday

Clouds will fill the sky along with fireworks this Fourth of July. A storm approaching from the south will be just close enough to fire off a shower or two. But not every town will see one. The clouds will hold back temperatures with highs in the low 70s for most.  Luckily, that storm will be departing around sunset.  That means fireworks displays should go off without a hitch. Sunday is much better with lots of sun, low humidity and high temperatures in the 80s. No doubt beaches will be packed!

Humidity returns, along with the warmth by next week.

Tonight: Increasing clouds. Low: 58-63

Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy, chance for a shower or two. High: 68-73

Sunday: Mostly sunny, warm and pleasant! High: 84-87 inland, 80-84 shore

Monday: Mostly sunny, warm and pleasant! High: 85-88 inland, 82-84 shore

Tuesday: Partly cloudy, more humid than recent days with the chance for an afternoon shower or thunderstorm. High: 80-85

Wednesday: Partly cloudy and humid with the chance for an afternoon shower or thunderstorm. High 80-85

Soaking Weekend Rain But It's Not A Total Wash

A windswept soaking rain will impact the weekend.  But the timing of the heaviest rain will help salvage some of our outdoor plans. Saturday looks mainly dry with the chance for shower late in the day.  Some towns will remain dry until Saturday night when steadier rain moves in, coming down heavy at times. Early Sunday morning is a soaker with a few lingering showers through the rest of the day.  Some brightening or breaks of sun are possible in the afternoon. A warming trend arrives next week.

Tonight: Partly cloudy, great sleeping weather. Low: mid 50s to around 60 degrees.

Tomorrow: Increasing clouds, chance for a late day shower. High: low 70s. Heavy windswept rain moving in at night.

Sunday: Early morning soaking rain. A few lingering showers with clouds slowly breaking for some afternoon sunshine. High: mid 70s to around 80 degrees.

Monday: Partly cloudy, pleasant. High: upper 70s to around 80 degrees.

Tuesday: Partly cloudy, humid chance for afternoon showers or thunderstorms. High: upper 70s to lower 80s.

Severe Storms Likely Tomorrow

Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible Tuesday afternoon. The greatest threat will be from 1 – 7 pm with damaging winds, large hail and vivid lightning. There is also a chance for a tornado somewhere in New England thanks to ample wind shear (wind direction that changes with height).

Tuesday will start off cloudy with a spotty shower. Then clouds will break for some sun leading to a warm and humid afternoon. The more sun we get, the stronger afternoon storms will be. If clouds linger, that will limit the severe potential. Storms will be scattered in nature which means not every town will one. Northern Connecticut has slightly better parameters or ingredients for severe weather.  But strong storms are possible anywhere in the state.

I expect the National Weather Service will issue a Severe Thunderstorm Watch shortly.  Perhaps even a Tornado Watch for part of the state tomorrow.  We’ll keep you posted!

Loving this discussion of possible scenarios tomorrow from the NWS Boston
 Tonight: Increasing clouds. Low: Mid 60s to near 70 degrees.

Tomorrow: Chance for a morning shower or thunderstorm. Warm and humid with clouds breaking for some sun.  Afternoon storms could be strong to severe. High: mid to upper 80s.

Wednesday: Sunny, less humid. High: lower to middle 80s.

Thursday: Sunny to partly cloudy. High: lower 80s.

Friday: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. High: low to mid 70s.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy. High: low to mid 70s.

Wet Dad's Day

Sunday morning heavy rain tapers to afternoon showers
The weather will not be perfect for outdoor plans with Dad this weekend. Saturday isn’t bad. But temperatures will remain cooler than average with increasing clouds. An isolated shower is possible too.  But the chance for rain goes up…way up on Sunday from the remnant moisture of once Tropical Storm Bill. Rain will be heavy at times Sunday morning. The afternoon looks drier and very humid with some brightening possible. But Saturday is still the safer bet for outdoor weekend plans. Summer arrives Sunday afternoon!

Tonight: Turning less humid. Partly cloudy. Low: Mid 50s to around 60 degrees.

Tomorrow: Some morning sun gives way to increasing clouds. Slight chance for an afternoon shower. High: low to mid 70s. Better chance for rain Saturday night.

Sunday: Very humid with periods of heavy rain in the morning. A few lingering showers in the afternoon with some brightening possible. High: upper 70s to around 80 degrees.

Monday: Mostly sunny, mild and muggy. High: mid 80s.

Tuesday: Clouds and sun with the chance for a few afternoon showers or a thunderstorm. High: upper 70s to lower 80s.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny. High: lower 80s.
