June 24 – Seasonably warm weather continues

A relatively warm start to summer continues through the weekend into the start of July next week. There will not be any scorching heat in Southern New England through the middle of next week, but typical summer humidity and warmth will persist.

Completely dry weather is unlikely, with scattered showers/storms possible on Wednesday and Sunday. Patchy fog is possible most mornings given the high humidity and onshore wind direction. Afternoon highs will mostly be in the mid to upper 80s inland, and closer to 80 at the coast. Temps at night will be in the 60s.

Friday looks like a nice summer afternoon

The forecast for the middle of next week is somewhat uncertain because of an area of low pressure near the Eastern Seaboard. It looks like showers and thunderstorms will be focused south of Southern New England, but a slight shift north in that system would bring some rain in the middle of next week. The overall scheme seems to favor hit and miss t-storms and showers through the first week of July.

The fourth named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, Dolly, was a do-nothing storm that came and went in less than 18 hours. It was out in the open Atlantic Ocean and does nothing more than pad the stats for this hurricane season that is expected to be above normal. So far, two of the four named storms have not lasted for more than 24 hours before becoming extratropical or weakening to a tropical depression.

The European computer model is showing a very low risk that the system near the Mid-Atlantic coast becomes a tropical depression next week. For the most part, the tropics look quiet.
