Low pressure will slowly move through New England Sunday which means more clouds, showers and cool temperatures coming our way. Showers, drizzle and fog will be most prevalent through Sunday morning and there may even be a rumble or two of thunder. The heaviest rain is most likely to occur in western and northern areas. The rain is truly needed most in southeastern parts of the state, but it does not appear a beneficial soaking will impact everyone. It will begin to turn drier during the afternoon as the low passes by, but a leftover afternoon or evening showers can't be ruled out.
High pressure then eases in from Canada for Monday and that brings a return of the sunshine with skies becoming mainly sunny by mid-late afternoon. It will also start a warming trend with highs climbing well into the mid and upper 70s.
The ridge of high pressure will move off the coast Tuesday onward, transporting summer heat and humidity into the region. Tuesday will be a sunny and warmer day with highs in the 80s. The true heat arrives Wednesday and Thursday, with highs in the lower to middle 90s, and along with high levels of humidity.
A front looks to work into the region Friday that will trigger thunderstorm activity with highs still close to 90.
