Rumbles of Thunder Possible With Afternoon Storm

Rain will fall heavily at times Thursday in southern and eastern New England, dropping either side of an inch of water with some higher amounts in southeast Massachusetts.

Rumbles of afternoon thunder are possible in southeast Massachusetts with this disturbance. Winds will generally blow from the northeast, ensuring a cool rain all day with highs struggling to get much beyond 60.

Cape Cod will see a southerly wind gusting to 40 mph, helping to boost temperatures into the middle 60s. Expect rain to taper to showers Thursday evening with very little rain falling overnight Thursday night. In fact, the weather will be much improved in time for Thursday evening’s Red Sox game, but it’ll be up to the ground crew as to whether the field is too wet.

Areas of fog are possible Thursday night, even with partial clearing above. Limited sun Friday will boost temperatures into the 70s. The atmospheric energy that drove Thursday’s storm will pass over New England on Friday, meaning afternoon scattered showers are possible, melting away after dusk.

Saturday looks amazing: sunshine, mild air, dry air and a fresh breeze with temperatures rising into the 80s are all in store. By Sunday, humidity will gradually rise and with the approach of a very sluggish cold front from Canada, the chance of showers and thunder rises. However, we aren’t expecting a washed out Father’s Day.

The chance of showers and thunder cropping up will remain elevated early next week as humidity and warmth are likely to linger, at least through the first half of the week in our exclusive First Alert 10-Day Forecast.
