It was a mostly sunny start to our Sunday, but clouds have quickly increased with showers and storms moving in thanks to an upper level low, spinning over New England. There are several severe thunderstorm warnings in effect across New England. For the full list of warnings, click here.
This cold pocket of air aloft will trigger another round of thunderstorms, with the main threat being hail.
Today, compared to Saturday, showers will be widespread with some pockets of strong to severe storms. The risk of strong storms will be highest mid-morning until 4 p.m. Downpours are also possible, some areas may receive 1-2 inches of rain per hour which will lead to street flooding. Remember that if you see a flooded road, don’t drive through it.
Showers and storms will diminish as the sun sets and we lose daytime, setting us up for a comfortable night with less humid air coming in from Canada. The first day of July will be splendid with lots of sunshine and lower humidity. Highs will be in the 70s to near-80s.
A pop-up shower or storm is possible Tuesday, but overall, next week is shaping up to be quite pleasant with few chances for rain and plentiful sunshine, though humidity will build just in time for Independence Day. There could be a shower or two on the Fourth of July, but the fireworks show will be a GO across the entire region. Highs next week will climb into the 80s. Enjoy!
