A glance at the week ahead

Clouds increased Sunday afternoon ahead of a weather system that was capable of producing widely scattered showers as it passed through Sunday evening. It will be mostly cloudy, mild, and humid after midnight. There may be some patchy fog – especially near the coast. Lows will be in the low to mid 60s early Monday morning. Low clouds and fog will burn off to some sunshine on Monday, and it will be reasonably (and seasonably) warm. Look for highs in the low 80s inland, and in the mid to upper 70s near the coast. A stray, passing shower cannot be ruled out in the afternoon or evening.

Tuesday should be the most unsettled day of the week, with the possibility of showers and thunderstorms as a front pushes through. It will not be as warm as Monday. Highs will be in the 70s. The best chance of showers/storms on Tuesday is from late in the morning through the afternoon. The cold front will drift offshore Tuesday night, and, right now, it looks like a storm that forms along the front will pass far enough south of Southern New England to not bring more rain Tuesday night into early Wednesday. That would be a welcome sight in this very soggy month of June.

High pressure will build in from the Great Lakes on Wednesday afternoon, bringing pleasant, dry weather for the midweek. Highs will be in the low to mid 70s with a light northerly breeze that may turn onshore during the afternoon. It will be clear and comfortably cool Wednesday night. The low temperature will drop into the upper 40s to low 50s with nice, dry air in place. Thursday should also be a nice day, albeit a bit cooler than normal. Highs will be in the low to mid 70s again with the wind swinging around to the south-southwest in the afternoon.

We’re not expecting too much change in the weather for Friday into the weekend. The air will not be quite as dry Thursday night, so low temperatures will not be as cool on Friday morning as they are likely to be on Thursday morning. It will, however, not be too humid, either. Friday afternoon will be partly sunny with highs in the mid to upper 70s. Saturday should be decent, with highs in the 70s. A system moving through the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes may threaten Southern New England with some rain by late next weekend. Of course, the exact timing of that system is somewhat unclear a week away, so stay with for the latest on what to expect for the first weekend of summer.
