    Weather Forecast: Sunny and Mild

    Monday night: Clear & cool. Upper 40s to mid 50s. Tuesday: Sunny & mild. Mid-70s to near 80. Wednesday: Mostly sunny. Upper 70s to low 80s.

    (Published Monday, June 25, 2018)

    High pressure moves in across New England Monday as a cold front that brought a round of damaging storms to eastern Massachusetts overnight pushes offshore.

    Showers and maybe a few thunderstorms will develop Monday afternoon as an atmospheric disturbance traverses overhead. Any remaining showers will dissipate as the sun sets in the evening.

    Clouds and cool air will keep parts of Maine and mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont in the upper 60s and lower 70s while southern regions crest into the mid to upper 70s, with a few locations in the Connecticut Valley touching 80 degrees.

    Mountain valleys dip into the low 40s to upper 30s overnight, upper 40s to mid 50s elsewhere.


    High pressure centers itself over New England on Tuesday, resulting in abundant sunshine, low humidity and high temperatures in the upper 70s to 80 degrees south and mid 70s across the north -- a perfect early-summers day!

    The area of high pressure that brought pleasant weather Tuesday will shift offshore by Wednesday, resulting in a return flow from the southwest. This will usher warming temperatures and increasing humidity across the region. An area of low pressure approaching from the Great Lakes will bring the threat of showers during the day but, expecting a mostly dry day for most.

    Thursday features clouds and rain as low pressure closes in. Due to increased clouds, expecting temperatures to reach into the low to mid 70s across most of New England.
