Warm weekend in Southern New England

Summer arrived with nice, warm weather in Southern New England on Friday. The high was in the 80s inland, and 70s near the coast. A couple of showers popped up in the afternoon, but for the vast majority it stayed dry. That will be the case in the coming days as well.

Saturday looks partly to mostly sunny, warm, and breezy. Highs inland should be 80-85, and it will be in the mid to upper 70s at the coast with a 10-20 mph southwesterly breeze. The humidity levels will creep up a bit near the coast.

Saturday night does not look as comfortably cool as the past few nights, with lows generally in the low 60s. Sunday will be a warm and somewhat humid day. Highs will be in the mid 80s inland, and close to 80 at the coast. Skies will be partly sunny.

There is the outside chance of a pop-up shower or thundershower both days this weekend, but most places will stay dry. The best chance of seeing a stray shower is well inland in Western MA and CT.

Some very warm, humid weather is in the forecast for early next week. Monday and Tuesday will both feature highs in the upper 80s to low 90s inland, and low 80s near the coast. It will be muggy, and afternoon showers and storms cannot be ruled out. Wednesday also has the potential to be quite warm, humid, but it will depend on how quickly a cold front advances through New England from the northwest. If the front does not pass on Wednesday, it will likely make it through by Thursday. When the front arrives, it will be accompanied by showers and thunderstorms. The wind will shift to the northeast ushering in much cooler weather for late in the week.

A slow-moving area of low pressure in the Great Lakes may bring widespread showers to the Northeast for part of the final weekend of June. It would be a fitting end to one of the wettest months on record in Southern New England.
