A very weak front that came down from the north late Sunday is going to be dissipating Monday morning, but there will be just enough left-over energy to generate afternoon clouds and a couple of scattered pop-up type showers or thundershower, so not everyone will get them. The greatest threat for these to occur will be in the western part of the state. Otherwise, it will continue to be a muggy day with partial sunshine and highs in the low and mid 80s.
In the meantime, a slow moving weather system coming from the Great Lakes region will work its way eastward into New England for Tuesday and Wednesday. As a result, high levels of humidity will endure and more in the way of showers and thunderstorms will be developing. I’m not saying that each day is going to be a total loss because there will be some sunshine both days, but you will need to be ready for changing weather conditions during the day. Also, any of the showers or storms that do develop can produce some brief heavy downpours. The good news to report about this rain threat is that compared to the computer model runs of the past few days it doesn’t look as if the overall areal coverage of these showers will be as widespread as it appeared last Friday and Saturday. Temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday will be in the lower half of the 80s.
Once this whole weather system clears out of the area late Wednesday, less humid air will finish out the upcoming week along with a good deal of sun and highs in the upper 70s and low 80s.
Have a terrific week!
