Tuesday was sensational in Southern New England. There was tons of sunshine, and highs were in the low 80s inland, and 70s near the coast. An east-southeast breeze kept it cooler near the shore. The weather will take a turn for the worse in the midweek. An approaching front will trigger a line of showers and thunderstorms late Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The rain does not look particularly heavy, and it will be steadiest early in the day. Skies will likely stay cloudy on Wednesday afternoon as the front stalls over Southeastern New England. Highs will be in the 60s on Wednesday.
A second system promises to bring steadier rain on Thursday. The storm, a bit stronger than normal for early June, will move south of Southern New England, and rain should overspread the Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts by around dawn on Thursday. The rain may be heavy at times during the day – especially in the morning. It will be breezy, with highs in the 60s again. An inch or more of rain is possible in Southeastern New England between the two systems Wednesday and Thursday.
Rain will get lighter on Thursday afternoon, and may end completely Thursday night. A disturbance will pin wheel through on Friday, and it may kick off a few showers in the morning. Friday afternoon looks partly to mostly sunny, with highs in the 70s. The weekend look fine, with a warming trend. Saturday will be partly to mostly sunny, with highs in the mid to upper 70s. Lows will be in the 50s. Sunday should be mostly sunny, breezy, and warmer inland. Highs may be back in the 80s away from the coast. It will stay in the 70s at the beaches with a southwest breeze. Scattered showers are possible Sunday night and/or Monday depending on the timing of the next weather system moving from the Ohio Valley to New England.
