An offshore subtropical Low will be moving up toward Nova Scotia Monday while a cold front slowly approaches from the west. The combination of these 2 systems will continue to have impact on our skies and will simply mean more of the same kind of weather that we saw Sunday, but with a little more in the way of sunny breaks. Also, for those heading to the coastal beaches, due to the offshore storm the surf may be a bit rough and there will be an increased risk for strong rip currents so beware!
As the approaching front from the west begins meandering its way into New England Tuesday we’ll see a few more showers and scattered thunderstorms developing that will last into Wednesday morning. In fact, Tuesday afternoon and evening may produce some strong to potentially severe storms to be on the lookout for. Meaning we could expect locally heavy downpours, strong to possibly damaging wind gusts and hail.
I’m still looking for improvement to slowly occur Wednesday afternoon as drying conditions filter into the area. However, there are pretty good indications that we may have to wait the entire day Wednesday for things to improve as that cold front may be stalling as it reaches the coast, just like the last front did to us on Friday and Saturday. All-in-all, Thursday still appears to feature less humid air that we have us all feeling a lot more comfortable for sure and I expect that to last into Saturday along with a good deal of sunshine.
Highs all week long will pretty much be range bound in the upper 70s and very low 80s. Lows will fall to 50s up north and mid 60s south with patchy areas of fog statewide at night through Tuesday morning, but It will remain rather muggy until the change begins to occur Wednesday with the passage of the cold front.
Have a great week!
