Wednesday’s beautiful weather seems to match the bright mood around New England ahead of tonight’s Game 7! High temperatures this afternoon are cruising into the 70s under sunny skies. A few wispy clouds will decorate the sky from time to time during the day, before clouds fill in more noticeably tonight.
Lows will drop into the 50s overnight as that happens.
Early morning commuters will be dry on Thursday, but a slug of tropical moisture will quickly advance into the area thereafter. The heaviest rain in southern New England likely falls from mid-morning through early afternoon, while the heaviest rain in northern New England falls during the afternoon and evening.
Another widespread half inch to inch and a half of rain is likely, with some localized flooding possible.

Winds will also be quite strong, coming off of the water all day. Expect some gusts 30-50 mph for southeastern Massachusetts and the Maine coast.
Temperatures will also be cool, reaching the 60s before falling into the 50s as the rain falls.
It stays breezy on Friday, but the wind turns out of the west-southwest, meaning we warm back up into the 70s. Another piece of energy rotating through New England will spark a few more spotty showers, especially north and west of Boston, while areas south and east have a better chance of seeing some splashes of sun.
Saturday is the pick of the weekend, with lots of sun and highs in the 70s to near 80.
Father’s Day will bring more clouds and a few spot showers, but no washouts. Right now many outdoor plans look fine, with just a few brief interruptions as the showers pivot through. Temperatures will still be in the 70s to around 80.
Next week, as we approach the official start of summer, it looks like we stay warmer than average with a bit more humidity. Scattered showers and storms will also be around as the pattern turns a bit more unsettled.
