One of the great hings about the weather in early-June is how quickly it can turnaround. Just one day after torrential rain soaked Southern New England, there was in and out sunshine Saturday afternoon. The temperature reached the upper 60s to mid 70s. It will be even nicer on Sunday as high pressure drifts overhead. Clouds will increase again late in the day Saturday, and a passing shower cannot be ruled out Saturday evening. It will become partly cloudy after midnight, and the temperature will drop into the upper 50s by dawn Sunday. It will become mostly sunny by mid-morning Sunday, with afternoon highs inland near 80, and in the 70s at the coast as a sea breeze develops.
The weather will stay quiet through Sunday night. Look for clear to partly cloudy skies with temperatures falling into the mid to upper 50s. There may be some patchy fog near the coast. Clouds will gradually increase on Monday in advance of a storm system that will plague Southern New England with occasional showers through the midweek. Showers are possible Monday afternoon, and some rain is likely Monday night. The temperature will fall from the low to mid 70s Monday afternoon to near 60 Monday night.
Tuesday and Wednesday look unsettled, with scattered showers and the chance of a few thunderstorms. It will be partly to mostly cloudy when it is not raining – which should be a fair amount of the time. Highs will be in the low 70s, and lows will be near 60. The slow-moving weather system will finally depart Wednesday night. Another inch or so of rain is possible between late Monday and late Wednesday. After a dry early to mid spring, the weather has been much wetter than normal for the past few weeks.
Another system, right on its heels, will bring some clouds on Thursday. Right now, it looks like it will stay far enough south to spare most of Southern New England more steady rain. At this point, the best chance of showers Thursday night into Friday is near the coast. The early outlook for Father’s Day weekend is for mainly clear and seasonably warm weather. Highs are expected to be in the 70s, and lows are forecast to be in the 50s.
