It was a tough afternoon and night and western and northern New England.
With the help of record temperatures like 93 Â° in Montpelier, Vermont, and a cold front coming from the west, several rounds of storm caused hundreds of trees and several reports of large hail. Quechee, Vermont, was hit particularly hard, where thousands were without power during dinner.
The same front is right over New England this morning, but luckily it’s weaker and will produce fewer thunderstorms today.
Early morning fog and low clouds burn into a mixture of sun and clouds, with cumulus clouds forming by noon. Another round of showers will develop in the west of New England, which is shifting to the east.
The hardest hit areas in Vermont, northern New Hampshire and northern Maine yesterday should be much less active today, with temperatures mostly in the 70s as the humidity drops.
But for much of southern and eastern New England, including the Maine coast, we’ll likely see another round of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon.
High temperatures will prevail in the north and west in the 70s and in the south and east in the 80s with high humidity. When the cold front passes and the temperatures start to cool, there should be some rain on the back of the front without a storm. But in some places in east New England, where we warm up with sunshine for a few hours by the mid-1980s, some of the thunderstorms around dinner time can be strong to violent.
After that evening, much less humid air comes in from northwest to southeast, which makes for a few nice days. Tomorrow mostly sunny with high temperatures in the 70s, dew point measurements in the 40s.
Thursday is also sunny with low humidity and temperatures of almost 80 Â°. The strawberry full moon is Thursday, and it should be a very nice view for the next few nights.
Warmer and more humid air comes back late in the week and on weekends, with a return to thunderstorms in the afternoon and high temperatures well into the 80s for the weekend. At the moment it looks like it won’t rain most of the time as can be seen in our 10 day forecast for the first alarm.
