Ahead of a cold front yesterday, the atmosphere was ‘juicy’, the sun provided more ‘insolation/instability’, and the cold front provided the ‘lift’.
The severe storms continued to weaken as they approached the coast overnight. You can find the storm reports by clicking on this link.
Today will be cloudy, muggy, and showery through midday.
The showers will be more persistent across southeastern Massachusetts. Skies will become partly sunny elsewhere.
Then, as a cold front slowly moves offshore, an upper level trough diving from the northwest will provide a slim chance of a spotty afternoon storm, mainly north and west.
Highs will reach the upper 70′s to lower 80′s today. The Cape/Islands will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
Thursday will be a beauty with sunshine and lower humidity. High temps will be near 80 with the Cape/Islands remaining near 70, plus or minus a few degrees.
June is going to arrive in a sunny fashion!
There will be increasing clouds during the afternoon and evening though.
It’s looking like a warm front never makes it north of the area.
The end result will be a north-northeast wind which will bring temps back to near-normal range, 70-to-75. The coastal communities will struggle to get out of the 60′s. If the front pushes far enough north, it would be turn out to be a much warmer day.
The first weekend of June will start with scattered rain on Saturday with a cold front sweeping through New England.
Sunday will be a casserole mix of sunshine along with diurnal clouds and showers with an upper level low hovering across the region.
Highs on Saturday will be in the 60′s for most of the area with some inland locales reaching the lower 70′s.
The onshore wind will keep temperatures on the cool side. Sunday will be a little warmer due to a wind shift. Sunday’s highs will be in the the middle 70′s and cooler on the Cape/Islands.
