We are currently out of the ‘line of fire’.  A few storms developed across the Great Lakes and Western New York yesterday afternoon as well as areas to our south along the stalled frontal boundary. Then, here we are with wall-to-wall sunshine!

A surface high will continue to shield us from the clouds and rain through the week. The only fly in the ointment will be a few upper level shortwaves which may trigger a brief afternoon shower across Northern New England later today and again on Wednesday afternoon. So, Southern New England is ‘prime real estate’, in terms of this week’s forecast.

Today will be blanketed with sunshine and high temperatures returning to the middle 80s. Once again, an onshore wind will develop this afternoon keeping the coastal communities in the 75-80F range.

It will be a sun-soaked Wednesday as well with similar high temperatures. In addition, the coast will be the ‘cooler’ territory again.

Thursday and Friday will begin the warming trend as highs surpass the middle 80s on Thursday and hang near 90F on Friday.  Humidity will also start to climb in Friday.  Both days will be filled with sunshine.

Saturday is beginning to look like the pick day of the weekend. However, it looks like there will be increasing clouds from south to north throughout the afternoon and evening.  Then, Sunday will be mainly cloudy with a chance of showers and storms, especially during the latter half of the day. Highs will be near 90F on Saturday and back to the lower and middle 80s on Sunday.

Jupiter, Venus, and the waning moon will be in full view in this week’s night sky.
