Gorgeous day in progress with sunshine, lower humidity and a gentle onshore wind. Highs will be climbing into the upper 70′s and Lwr 80′s inland. Beaches will be cooler with temps in the upper 60′s and lwr 70′s
It is a hazy humid mix of sunshine and clouds today. SW winds will help to keeps temps warm in the Mid 80′s for most, cooler on the Cape. This will be another pretty good beach day, despite the haze…it will be dry and warm.
A cold front is on the move. Scattered storms have been forming in New York state and these will be pushing into western New England during the afternoon .
Tracking a complex of rain and thunderstorms moving out of the Catskills. This will continue to spread clouds our way the rest of the evening. Most of the rain has waited for the evening hours…where is will be out west from 6 PM -9PM, then begin to shift east, Heaviest rain will be found after midnight. The column is loaded with moisture, so expect a few heavy downpours and maybe even some embedded thunder.
Isolated to Scattered Strong to Severe Thunderstorms are likely Monday Afternoon and Evening across the entire NWS Taunton County Warning Area. Damaging Winds, Large Hail, and urban/poor drainage flooding are the primary threats..
Strong storms have struck some areas in Massachusetts that were hit by June tornadoes, and tornado warnings were issued but none have been reported.
Best chance of any thunderstorm activity now will be from 6pm-12 am, and any storms that form could contain very heavy downpours, frequent lightning, damaging winds and some small hail. The atmosphere is very ripe in extreme Southern New England (parts of CT, RI and SE Mass and farther south towards the Mid Atlantic). So those would be the most likely areas for any severe weather later this evening.
Just an awesome summer day out there with sunshine, warm temps in the 80′s and moderate humidity. It all is making for a perfect weather combo. High pressure pulls off the coast later today and warmer more humid air will begin to wrap in Monday.
The cold front which helped to trigger strong to severe storms late yesterday across the Pioneer Valley has weakened and stalled over southeast MA. This cold front will likely become the trigger for a few scattered showers or thunderstorms to form later this afternoon across Bristol, Plymouth and Barnstable counties. These areas, including along the south coast have dewpoints in the upper 60′s to near 70 which will help to fuel the scattered afternoon convection.
We are socked in the clouds this Sunday with cool onshore NE winds keeping temps running below normal. Very chilly at the coast with areas of drizzle and mist this morning. Temps at the beaches will likely remain in the 40′s and lwr 50′s. Farther inland a better chance of some warming into the 50′s and Lwr 60′s. with mid 60′s in the CT river valley. Mostly cloudy conditions will prevail, but there is the potential for a few breaks of sun in any thinner overcast this afternoon inland.
After a showery and breezy start it is going to start to get mighty interesting around here for the next few hours. The tornado outbreak is finally coming to an end, but upper level winds are steering that energy, and moisture up the east coast in the form of thunderstorms.
