    Most Showers Missing Region for Fourth of July

    Today (Tuesday): AM clouds to sun, isolated evening sprinkle. Highs in the 80s. Overnight Tuesday Night: Quiet, mostly clear. Lows in the 60s, 70s in cities. Wednesday: Hot and sunny. Highs near 90, 80s coast. (Published Tuesday, July 2, 2019)

    A little disturbance will bring some clouds and a chance for a shower across northern New England Tuesday morning.

    By afternoon, we will have a west wind allowing for warmer temps in the 80s, even along the coast. There’s a chance for a pop-up shower in the mountains but otherwise, we'll remain dry.

    Humidity builds for the mid-week forecast so more clouds are expected Wednesday through the end of the week. There is a slim chance for a pop-up shower or storm in the heat of the afternoon and across the interior.

    The 4th of July will be gorgeous with summer heat and humidity, with a slight chance for a pop-up storm. The exclusive NBC10 Boston precipitation chance only has about a 5% to 20% chance. Western New England has the highest chance of a pop-up storm or shower.

    Upper-level disturbances move through Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. A cold front will move through Saturday into Sunday. This means that we have a chance for scattered rain and thunderstorms all three days. As soon as the cold front moves through Sunday, then direr air will return.

    This is reflected in our 10-day forecast for the start to next week.
