The Long-Range Forecast from Monday is still looking good for next week. After a cold pool of air triggers showers and storms on Sunday, there will be dry and quiet weather early next week. Meanwhile, a big warm-up will happen in the Midwest. That warm-up will be slowly moving east, but may never make it into Southern New England. In fact, we favor a scenario where the warm front gets hung up over Southern New England bringing showers late next week, and the warmth does not make it in for the Mother’s Day weekend. Overall, it looks like a fairly active pattern from about Thursday to Sunday.
While there will be no big warm-up, there will also not be any huge cool-down. I expect the nighttime temperature to be above normal when it’s raining, and the daytime high will be just a few degrees below normal. Therefore, the next two weeks should be at or above normal temperature-wise in Southern New England.
