We will go from ‘mild to hot’ by midweek, also known as ‘warm to a scorch-a’!
Marine-influenced clouds will erode and give way to sunnier conditions midday. Highs will be in the lower to middle 70s away from the coast, but the coast will remain cool in the middle to upper 60s.
A combination of the 500H ridge and the position of the surface high will be the major contributors to the 2-day midweek scorcher!
Tuesday will be the beginning of the hot stretch as highs reach the lower 80s, near 70 on the South Coast/Cape/Islands.
Wednesday (Summer Solstice ~7:09pm EDT) will be the first day of the two-day hot streatch that will reach the lower 90s (record: 98F in 1953)!
Thursday will be even hotter with highs reaching the upper 90s for some neighborhoods!
Both days will be partly cloudy to partly sunny across southern New England. Northern and western New England hold a slight risk of a strong storm or two during the afternoon hours of Wednesday and Thursday.
A cold front will slowly move through from Friday morning through the early evening.
This will provide us with a slight chance of a storm or two. Highs will return to the middle and upper 80s, which is still above the average high in the upper 70s.
The humidity will slowly be ‘washed away’ once the wind shifts behind the front.
The pick day of the first weekend of Summer ’12 is currently looking like Saturday with sunshine and highs in the lower 80s.
Sunday is showing showers and storms along with highs heading back in to the 70s. Of course, we all know this is subject to change.
