The weather has been unsettled to start the week. Warm sunshine has given way to afternoon and evening showers and t-storms in most of Southern New England both Monday and Tuesday. A storm system sliding out to sea south of Nantucket Tuesday night will take the showers with it, and open the door to pleasant weather on Wednesday. The shower threat ends before dawn, and skies will clear Wednesday morning. The low temperature will be in the mid to upper 50s.
Wednesday afternoon looks partly sunny and dry, with a light northeast wind and highs in the low to mid 70s. Wednesday night should be clear and comfortably cool as high pressure settles overhead. The low temperature Thursday morning will be in the low to mid 50s – great sleeping weather! The wind will come around to the south-southwest as the area of high pressure slowly slides offshore on Thursday. It will be another fine day, with highs in the mid 70s.
It will get a bit warmer, but not too hot, Friday through the weekend. Highs inland will be in the low 80s, it will stay in the 70s near the coast because of a southwesterly wind. You can expect the humidity levels to creep up with that wind direction. Lows will be in the low 60s by the weekend. Skies will be partly cloudy, and rain is not a big concern. There is the outside chance of seeing a few afternoon showers or thundershowers well away from the coast on any of the three days. A disturbance moving through late in the weekend or early next week may bring widespread showers to all of Southern New England.
