Strong thunderstorms are possible again today. It will be another "Early Warning Weather Day."
More thunderstorms are possible this morning and this afternoon as a low pressure system and a cold front pass through New England. These storms will produce locally heavy downpours. There's even an opportunity for severe weather in the state today.
After the early thunderstorms clear, hazy sun will appear and high temperatures will be in the 80s. The air will be humid and unstable. As a cold front approaches this afternoon, a new line of strong thunderstorms may fire, with strong wind and hail being the primary concerns. Then, after the final line of thunderstorms moves through, the humidity will start to drop during the evening, possibly sending the dew points from near 70 degrees into the comfortable 50s.
The front will finally move off the New England coast tomorrow, and then we can look forward to dry, comfortable weather for much of this week. The jet stream will dip southward across much of the Eastern United States this week. That means the final days of July will be a little cooler than normal with cool nights and dry, pleasantly warm days.
By Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, a new storm system will arrive and start to bring humidity and the chance for thunderstorms back into the Northeast. We should expect to see showers by Friday afternoon. And, at first glance, the weekend looks rather wet and somewhat cool – especially Sunday – as a storm system slowly moves up the coast.
Have a great week!
