A few thunderstorms lingered Saturday morning after arriving to the Cape and the Islands, producing moderate to strong lightning.
Inland, we had a few showers advancing from Colebrook in northeast motion towards Portsmouth passing through Lowell, where some cells produced moderate rain. Most of the area has stayed mainly cloudy but dry.
Total forecasted rainfall amounts were no more than 1/10 – 3/10 of an inch. Expect mostly cloudy skies, dry conditions with a few breaks of sun towards the afternoon, great, picnic weather.
Sunday, we should have wonderful temperatures (I would think), reaching the 80s in areas like Providence, Taunton, Manchester and Lowell.
A very brief high pressure system will take care of Saturday evening’s sky and Sunday's temperatures until we get to Sunday afternoon/evening when rain chances come back.
Expect a rainy Sunday night, mainly on the western cities, and rainy conditions will prevail for Monday and Tuesday. And it seems like Wednesday we’ll have some thunderstorms, as well.
Temperatures will rise from Wednesday through Friday, but so will the dew point. You know what that means….look out for the HEAT INDEX (sorry guys, I know you enjoy cooler days).
