Here’s When Thunderstorms Could Hit New England – NBC Boston


High pressure slipping into our south and east today will bring a reflux of increasing moisture as the day progresses. As the afternoon progresses, the clouds will increase. The high temperatures rise again in the low to mid 80s.

Isolated showers hit the region overnight. With the cloud cover overhead, the low temperatures are not falling as fast as they did last night and will remain at the low until the mid-1960s. Down at the cape and the islands there will be airy conditions.

On Saturday the night showers will leave the region and our next weathermaker is approaching from the Great Lakes. A stormy southwest wind is blowing on the coast. Isolated showers and thunderstorms set in by evening, with some storms containing harmful winds and hail.

The highs on Saturday will reach into the deep 80s.

On Father’s Day, high pressure builds up and the sky clears up in the morning. The humid air will stay on the cape and islands. Expect sunny skies and highs in the lower 80s for most, cooler in the Cape and Islands and Maine. An occasional shower or raindrop may fall early in the morning.

Looking ahead to the start of the work week, Monday will see increased humidity and warmer temperatures as a southwest reflux to New England builds up. Heights range into the lower to mid 90s and cooler in the 80s on the coast.

The warm and humid air mass from Monday will still be there on Tuesday. A fault, coupled with a cold front, will be approaching from the west and will move across the region during the afternoon and evening. Expect showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. Due to the high moisture content in the atmosphere, there is a possibility of downpours during showers or thunderstorms.

Through Wednesday and Thursday, the high pressure on First Alert’s exclusive 10-day forecast on NBC10 Boston and NECN will bring in drier and more comfortable air.
