A nearby storm system will throw more showers at Southern New England on Tuesday. It will not rain all day, but showers and thunderstorms are possible at any point over the next few days. Highs will be in the 70s and lows will be in the 60s with plenty of clouds around on Tuesday and Wednesday.
It looks a bit warmer on Thursday with a lower, but not zero, risk of showers. Highs will be in the low 80s. A disturbance moving south from northern New England could trigger thunderstorms on Friday afternoon. Highs will be in the 80s again. In a worst-case scenario, that disturbance is still close enough to set off scattered t-storms on the 4th of July. If that happens, it looks like the most likely area to get hit would be in Eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Odds favor mainly or all dry weather Sunday into early next week. Scattered storms may return in the midweek. The temperature pattern for the next week will average near normal with cool weather in the midweek giving way to seasonably warm weather late in the weekend and early next week.
The trend is for relatively warm weather in mid-July. Precipitation looks to be near normal between July 10-20. Recent rain is helping to alleviate dry conditions over Southern New England. A moderate drought is in effect for part of norther CT and MA. There are no issues near the coast.
