Long-Range Forecast – May 29
Meteorological summer begins on Sunday, June 1. If you’re looking for an early-season heat wave, you’ll have to look somewhere besides Southern New England. While the start of the month Sunday-Tuesday look pretty nice, and relatively warm – especially Monday/Tuesday, the overall pattern for the next couple of weeks does not scream “summer”. In fact, but the middle of June, many people may be fed up with the periodically unsettled weather that may plague the Northeast in the next couple of weeks.
After the nice weather early next week, it will get showery in the midweek. It’s unclear whether those showers will arrive on Tuesday or Wednesday, but some unsettled weather is likely for a day or two. It will not be terribly cool when the showers arrive.
Conditions are favorable for seasonable temperatures, but also periodic wet weather in the second week of June. The GFS model insists on bringing a rainy system out of the Gulf of Mexico, but not all models concur. In any event, a trough in the east will likely develop, and in that pattern, you can generally expect near normal temperatures and the chance of rain every few days.
