Warming Trend Heading Into the Weekend



    Weather Forecast: Warm-up Begins on Thursday

    Partly sunny on Thursday with temperatures in the 70s, while the warming trend continues throughout the weekend and into next week.

    (Published Thursday, June 7, 2018)

    Low pressure passes to our north through southern Canada today, with an attendant cold front entering northern New England during the afternoon.

    This pattern means more of a breeze from the southwest, that's the warmer weather direction, allowing us to get to 70° or a little warmer in spots with equal amounts of clouds and sunshine.

    But the front also means a chance for a shower and or a thunderstorm, especially in New Hampshire and Maine.

    The front weakens considerably as it moves to the South Coast tonight and early Friday. That should leave most of New England with a good amount of sunshine tomorrow with a high temperature closer to 80°.

    A wave of low pressure will move along that old stalled front at night and Saturday with clouds moving back into southern New England for most of Saturday. And there's a chance for a bit of light rain from Connecticut to Cape Cod during the day Saturday. Otherwise mostly dry with a high temperature in the 70s.

    Sunday may have a few clouds around, but overall looks like a nice day with more clouds than sunshine and a high temperature in the 70s.
