For The Rest Of Today: The coverage of shower and thunderstorm activity is expected to increase by this afternoon with at least a couple of rounds of showers and thunderstorms likely throughout this afternoon. One thing that we are going to have to watch for is the possibility for a strong or perhaps even a severe thunderstorm along and west of I-91 where the atmosphere may be a little more unstable. At this point, it is something that is a low risk, but it is something to keep an eye on.
High temperatures this afternoon will be between 70 and 75 Degrees with humid conditions.
Tonight: Scattered shower and thunderstorm activity is possible this evening with widespread showers and possible thunderstorms expected after midnight tonight as an area of low pressure tracks across southern New England. Some of these showers and possible thunderstorms late tonight will contain locally heavy rainfall.
Total rainfall amounts from this afternoon through tonight will average between one half of an inch (0.50) to one inch across Western and Central Mass.
Low temperatures tonight will be near 65 Degrees with humid conditions.
Friday: That low pressure system is expected to cross the Gulf of Maine and move towards Atlantic Canada during Friday.
Widespread showers are expected during Friday morning, especially across Central Mass. The shower activity will come to an end around midday Friday with some sunshine expected during Friday afternoon.
High temperatures Friday will be near 75 Degrees. The humidity levels on Friday are expected to drop drastically throughout the day making things feel much drier.
Saturday Through Sunday: A beautiful weekend is expected for weather across Western and Central Mass. Plenty of sunshine is expected on both Saturday and Sunday. High temperatures Saturday will be between 75 and 80 Degrees. High temperatures Sunday will be between 80 and 85 Degrees.
Monday Through Tuesday: Monday is expected to feature plenty of sunshine with high temperatures around 85 Degrees.
Tuesday is a bit of a wildcard as the weather will depend on how quick a frontal system moves eastward from the Great Lakes. A quicker moving frontal boundary would mean a day of clouds and widespread shower activity along with temperatures between 75 and 80 Degrees. On the other hand, if we see a slower moving frontal boundary, we could see a very warm day with high temperatures between 85 and 90 Degrees along with some sunshine. In addition, late afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms would be a concern as well with a slower moving front.
At this point, I think that we could at least see some sunshine in the morning with afternoon showers and possible thunderstorms expected. High temperatures Tuesday will be around 80 Degrees.
