Beautiful sunshine and mild conditions will persist right through mid-week as high pressure dominates our weather this week. It’s a stark contrast to the persistent low pressure, clouds, and rain that hovered nearby to start the month.
High temperatures on Tuesday will soar to around 70 degrees with mostly sunny skies across New England. A few high clouds may drift through parts of Southern New England, especially in Connecticut.
Overnight Tuesday temperatures will again drop into the 20s and 30s in some of the chilliest spots, resulting in more patchy frost. Keep that in mind if you’ve done any early planting. Our turn around on Wednesday is quick though with another day full of sunshine and highs in the 60s and 70s. It will be warmest through places like the Connecticut River Valley and coolest along the immediate coastline where a slight seabreeze develops.
Sunshine remains overhead Thursday with highs surging into the mid and upper 70s. It will be a bit cooler, in the 60s, for the South Coast, Cape, Islands, and parts of the Maine coast due to a southwest wind.
A warm front pushing in on Friday will bring increasing clouds, and a bit more humidity. Highs will again reach the 70s. A few scattered showers and storms are likely to pop up in Western New England during the afternoon as a trailing cold front then approaches. A few of those showers or storms will likely linger into part of Saturday, but it certainly will not be a washout. The arrival of that front will eventually cool us off a bit for the second half of the weekend.
