    What to Know

    • Storms are expected to impact much of New England on Tuesday

    • A line of downpours and storms will arrive in far northern New England during the morning hours before sliding into Massachusetts and N.H.

    • Much of southern New England will wait until afternoon and evening for the downpours and storms to arrive

    Dense morning fog continues to burn off across New England on Monday, leaving us with partly cloudy and muggy conditions during the afternoon.

    High temperatures will be near 80 at the coast, but near 90 inland. In between that temperature divide expect a few isolated, pop up downpours or storms to form during the afternoon.

    Most places will avoid any rain, but when it does come down, expect a downpour.

    Monday overnight temperatures will hold in the 70s for many with more fog developing.

    Tuesday turns active as a cold front slams into our still warm, humid air mass.

    A line of downpours and storms will arrive in far Northern New England during the morning hours before sliding into Western Massachusetts, much of New Hampshire and Maine during the lunch hour.

    Much of Southern New England will wait until afternoon and evening for the downpours and storms to arrive.

    While some isolated wind damage may occur, the biggest threat with the storms is the torrential rain, which may result in some pockets of street flooding.

    The downpours and storms will weaken as they reach the coast at night. The last of the showers will depart the coast early Wednesday, allowing for clearing over the course of the day. Less humid air will also arrive, giving us a refreshing feel by afternoon.

    Beautiful sunshine and low humidity will dominate both Thursday and Friday before our forecast turns more unsettled again next weekend into the following week.
