With Humidity Down, Thursday Qualifies as Beach Day

62719 necn early am wx

The weather is becoming a little bit more predictable now.

We had another round of overnight fog that has to burn off Thursday morning. And thunderstorms from late Wednesday did cause some damage in parts of Vermont and western Massachusetts and Connecticut. There’s a slight chance that we have a few more of those late in the day. But for most of New England, most of the next couple of days are just warm and dry.

Humidity is down a bit from Wednesday, with high temperatures near 90 degrees west under mostly sunny skies. A light breeze from the ocean will keep us much cooler at the beach. But with low tide just after lunchtime, we would qualify Thursday as a beach day.

Any thunderstorms are fewer and further between late Thursday, most likely northern New Hampshire and Maine.

Fog will once again form overnight, but should be less widespread and easier to burn off Friday morning. Low temperatures in the night will be in the 50s north to low 60s south.

A weak front in far northern New England may trigger thunderstorms again later tomorrow, otherwise it’s partly to mostly sunny with a high temperature close to 90 degrees, once again cooler at the coast with a weak sea breeze.

Our weekend weather is not quite as bright. We have a weather front settling across New England with waves of low pressure causing numerous showers and thunderstorms both Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures are still in the 80s Saturday, but falling into the 70s for a lot of us Sunday.

Any thunderstorms this weekend can be strong to severe with hail and possible damaging winds.

Many communities start their fireworks this weekend, and the storms are hit or miss during the sunset hours. It’s impossible to say who gets them, but there’s about a 50-50 chance for anyone place.

Not much change coming next week, except we should become a little bit less humid with cooler air to start the week. By July 3 and 4, we are back to the low 80s with pop-up thunderstorms possible. A fairly typical summer pattern for New England, as seen in our First Alert 10-Day Forecast.
