The first weekend of summer will not be a great one in Southern New England. A slow-moving storm system brings showers and possibly thunderstorms on Saturday. Another round of showers/storms may move through late Sunday as the disturbance slowly moves east.
It will be cool on Saturday with temps struggling to get out of the 60s. Showers are likely during the day. It will not be raining from the whole time from dawn to dusk, but there will be wet stretches with some downpours likely. A thunderstorm cannot be ruled out, even though temps are only going to be in the low-mid 60s when it’s raining. The shower threat continues Saturday night as the first part of the storm system passes by.
Sunday looks warmer and muggier with some sunny breaks in the midday. The best bet for any rain on Sunday is inland and late in the day. A general shower/storm threat continues through the evening, with drier air moving in on a northerly breeze late Sunday night into Monday.
The weather looks great in the early to middle part of next week. Look for partly cloudy skies on Monday with highs in the 70s. Tuesday looks about the same temperature-wise, with a bit more sunshine. The humidity will be comfortable into the midweek, and that means lows in the 50s. Wednesday also looks nice with highs in the 70s to low 80s.
A front moving through Wednesday night into Thursday may bring scattered showers/storms. It does not look like widespread soaking rain. The early outlook for late next week into the weekend is for a warm-up with increasing humidity.
