Temps will be warming up this afternoon inland climbing into the mid 80′s for most areas, even nearing 90 in western New England. Weak high pressure will make for wall to wall sunshine through the day with light NW winds. A sea breeze will likely develop at the coast this afternoon to cool temps from the lwr 80′s back into the 70′s for the second half of the day.
Dewpoints have climbed into the Lwr-mid 60′s so there is a muggy feel along with the increasing heat. Temps will be close to yesterday’s, but maybe a couple of degrees warmer climbing into the Lwr 90′s in most areas. Along with the humidity, this is a day where you need to take moments during the day to stay cool…either by AC, shade, water, or ice cream!
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.
