BOSTON (CBS) – A line of very strong thunderstorms rolled through this evening out ahead of a coldfront…drenching rain, hail and gusty winds were all a problem during the evening commute. The storm threat has diminished now that the sun is lowering and will shortly set but may be an issue again tomorrow.
The coldfront that aided the thunderstorm outbreak today will be draped over the coastline tomorrow. This will provide a focus for more storms to develop tomorrow afternoon. The limiting factor may be the heating…highs will only mange the middle 70s, not the middle 80s like today. With that said, the jetstream will be in a favorable position so if storms can overcome the lack of warmth, then we may have another round of severe weather.
Following tomorrow’s storm potential, dry and more stable air will come flowing in for the middle and second half of the week. Clouds will be whisked away by the afternoon on Wednesday with temps in the 70s. High pressure will be situated over New England on Thursday and Friday leading to ample sunshine…highs will range from the 70s at the coast with a seabreeze to around 80 inland.
That same high will shift offshore a bit for the weekend and temps will climb into the middle 80s. We will also see an increase in humidity and a small chance for afternoon thunderstorms.
