    Downpours have cleared out by mid-afternoon in most locations throughout New England on Sunday, with additional strong thunderstorms formed in western New England late afternoon today. Those thunderstorms will gradually weather through the overnight.

    Monday morning we wake up to clouds, but there will be some clearing. Temperatures will climb quickly into the 70s and 80s. Humidity levels will be as high as they are on a sultry day in the summer. Our next chance of thunderstorms will arrive Monday afternoon. At this point, the activity doesn’t look widespread, but the thunderstorms which do develop could become violent with damaging winds, hail and an isolated tornado. The greatest threat is throughout interior New England. Current thinking is that the timing of those thunderstorms will be in the afternoon.

    Tuesday and Wednesday are comfortable to quiet. High temperatures both days with reach the upper 60s and low 70s. It will be quite breezy with wind gusts to 30 mph both days.

    Showers return by the end of the week. Temperatures will hold in the low to mid 70s.

    The Holiday Weekend looks a bit unsettled, but it’s way too early to reschedule or cancel any outdoor plans. Sunday looks like the pick of the weekend. There is an outside chance of a showers and temperatures will reach the low 70s. Our highest rain chance will be on Saturday. Even if we see rain over the weekend, there will be plenty of dry time mixed in between rain drops.
