    Overnight Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 50s and 60s. Thursday: Partly cloudy, spot shower. Highs around 80. Friday: Muggy, warm. Afternoon storms. Highs in the 80s. (Published Wednesday, June 28, 2017)

    Damaging winds brought down numerous trees and power lines yesterday as strong to severe thunderstorms rolled across southern New England.

    We won’t see the same type of weather today as dry and pleasant conditions move in with an area of high pressure overhead. Some showers and even a rumble of thunder or two develop across the White Mountains into western Maine.

    Highs today will reach into the mid to upper 70s south and near 70 degrees north. High pressure slides south of New England overnight, resulting in light west winds and continued dry weather.

    Lows dip into the mid to upper 50s south and around 50 degrees across the north. A warm front slides north tomorrow, returning heat and humidity to New England for the weekend.

    Not expecting much in the way of precipitation with clouds building in as boundary overspreads region. High temperatures crest into the upper 70s to low 80s.

    Heat and humidity surge back into New England behind warm frontal passage Friday as a building sub-tropical high pressure strengthens south of the region. Right now, looking like scattered showers and thunderstorms may develop during the evening and push southeast towards the coast around midnight.

    All in all, the day is looking dry. Highs surge into the upper 80s to near 90 degrees south and near 80 degrees across the north. As we look ahead to the weekend, we’re monitoring the potential for more strong thunderstorms on Saturday and Sunday across the region as a series of disturbances move through the atmosphere over New England.

    Warming around 5,000 feet may limit or cap development during the day on Saturday. Regardless, expecting a sultry summer day with highs reaching well into the 80s. A cold front approaches New England on Sunday, bringing showers and thunderstorms to the region.

    Highs will reach into the low to mid 80s south and upper 70s north. Brief relief comes at the start of next week as an upper-level trough settles in overhead.
