After last night’s rain pulled out we were left with a cloudy New England this morning. Before we get to this afternoon’s shower/storm risk, temperatures today will be mostly in the 60s, with isolated upper 50s in the northern New England mountains and isolated low 70s some parts of Eastern Massachusetts with more widespread readings of 70-75 across Connecticut, Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts; rare instance where Cape Cod and the MA/RI islands will be one of the warmest spots. Skies will generally be cloudy today.
This morning and early afternoon should be dry. Mid-afternoon is where things get interesting with a complex of low pressures; a mesolow will form in eastern NY and another low will pass just SE of Nantucket. This will allow a chance of scattered thunderstorms this afternoon and more widespread rain this evening into the early overnight. A very scattered storm may go severe with a gust of damaging wind and/or a brief, weak tornado not fully out of the question; however there is barely any instability, and the risk of any severe weather as such is extremely low but non-zero. The areas of low pressure however will allow that area of widespread showers to form as the evening goes on, with areas of heavy rain possible.
Have a good day!
