    We woke up to showers, with some embedded downpours and thunderstorms. The line of showers will move off the coastline and we’ll start to see a gradual clearing as early as mid-afternoon for southern New England, northern New England will have some light showers lingering through dinner time.

    High temperatures today will reach into the lower 70s for southern New England as we’ll see some peeks of sunshine later this afternoon and evening, 60s for northern New England with Maine only reaching into the 50s. 

    Overnight Tuesday Night, we’ll continue to see a clearing from southwest to northeast with lows dropping into the 40s. For Wednesday morning, a few lingering showers expected into tomorrow morning for northern Maine, ahead of a cold front that slides through.

    This will change the wind direction out of the northwest by Wednesday evening for most of New England. This means that high temperatures will be much closer to normal for this time of year and much more refreshing. Highs on Wednesday reach into the 60s south, 50s north under fair skies. T

    hursday remains dry as high pressure slides in, but does not stay for long. Thursday will start off mostly sunny before clouds increase by the afternoon and evening ahead of the next system. 

    High pressure slides off the coastline for Friday, allowing the next system from the Ohio Valley to bring a soaking rain for most of New England by Friday afternoon and evening. The showers could start as early as the Friday morning commute for western New England and spread eastward through the day, with the heaviest rain through the afternoon and evening.

    Temperatures Friday only reach into the mid to upper 50s, with the rain extending into Saturday. We do see some breaks in the rain on Saturday by the late afternoon, but it will remain mostly cloudy for the rest of the day and windy with gusts nearing 30-35 mph. Less of a chance for rain on the back edge of the system on Sunday, but it still will remain breezy with highs in the lower 60s south, 50s north.
