Good Tuesday All!
A few heavy downpours developed yesterday and a few Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisories were issued. The showers moved very slowly since steering currents aloft are rather week.
Today will be partly sunny and warm with moderate humidity. It'll be a little warmer than yesterday with highs in the mid to possibly upper 80s. Once again, there will be a few random showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening that could produce some locally heavy downpours.
Thunderstorms are more likely tomorrow as a cold front passes through Southern New England. There is the potential for strong to severe storms and the main concern may be large hail and heavy downpours. The atmosphere will be more unstable tomorrow with colder air aloft moving in. Temperatures will reach the 80s before the cold front moves through.
The end of the workweek looks very nice! Cooler and much drier air will move in on the heels of the cold front for Thursday and Friday. The mercury will dip into the 50s and lower 60s at night. Daytime highs will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Very comfortable! The weekend looks great too, although temperatures will be on the rise. Highs on Saturday will be in the low to mid 80s. Highs on Sunday will be in the mid to possibly upper 80s. Both days will feature partly to mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will continue to rise early next week.
Hurricane Bertha is a storm we continue to watch. However, Bertha will likely pass several hundred miles to the south and east of Nantucket late tonight and tomorrow. The only real concern in Southern New England is for beach goers along ocean facing beaches. Dangerous rip currents are possible. Please be careful!
Have a terrific week!
