It’s been a long afternoon and evening with strong to severe thunderstorms marching across the region. Today’s highs in the 80s along with high dewpoints aided in thunderstorm development. But it was a backdoor coldfront that tipped the scales and provided the trigger needed for dangerous storms to fire up. The atmosphere is still ripe for storms so more are possible during the overnight.
Tomorrow will start out foggy and murky but sun should burn through again and temps will spike up into the lower and middle 80s. This will lead to another storm threat in the afternoon and evening.
Thursday will be another warm and humid day but the wind direction may be a little more southerly…if that occurs, temps won’t be able to climb as high and the storm threat will be much less in the afternoon. But it could get interesting later in the night as a coldfront marches in with a strong line of storms from New York State. That same front will stall over New England and a wave of low pressure will develop along it. The result will be a very wet and much cooler Friday with periods of rain.
The storm will lift out but clouds will dominate the start of the weekend along with a gusty NW wind making for a brisk feeling Saturday. But as the weekend goes on sun will be the more dominant player and temps will gradually warm through the 60s close to 70 by Memorial Day.
