For This Afternoon: The weather pattern over the next 2 to 3 days is going to feature a frontal boundary that’s going to take its sweet time pushing through our area. This means that a prolonged rainfall is likely across the entire area that lasts from all day Monday through all day Tuesday. Skies for this afternoon will feature an increase in clouds. Some instability ahead of that front is likely to lead to the development of a few thunderstorms very late this afternoon. Overall, I’m not expecting any widespread thunderstorm activity, but instead the thunderstorms should be fairly isolated in coverage. Temperatures will be around 85 Degrees. Winds will be Southwest at 5 to 10 mph. Tonight: Scattered thunderstorms are expected to persist this evening before we see some briefly dry weather after midnight tonight. Low temperatures will be between 60 and 65 Degrees. Winds will be South at 5 to 10 mph. Labor Day Through Tuesday: That frontal boundary will crawl through the region from Monday right through Tuesday. Widespread showers with moderate to heavy rain at times is expected to overspread the entire area by about mid to late morning Monday and then continue through all afternoon Monday and all of Monday night. It appears that the frontal boundary will push to the south leading to widespread shower activity Tuesday morning to come to an end by Tuesday afternoon. Rainfall totals from Monday through Monday night and Tuesday morning will average between 1 and 2 inches. Local amounts of up to 3 inches are possible, especially across areas near and south of the Mass Pike. Most of this rainfall is expected to occur during Monday afternoon and Monday night. High temperatures Monday will be between 65 and 70 Degrees. Low temperatures Monday night will be near 60 Degrees. High temperatures Tuesday will be near 65 Degrees. Winds will be North to Northeast at 5 to 10 mph throughout Monday, Monday night and Tuesday. Wednesday Through Friday: A ridge of high pressure is expected to build into the region for the second half of this coming week. Wednesday is expected to be sunny to partly sunny with high temperatures between 70 and 75 Degrees. Thursday & Friday will be sunny with high temperatures near 80 Degrees.
