Today’s temperatures will range between 44 and 73. The highs below 50 will be reserved for central/northern Maine, northern NH and northeast Vermont, while temps in the 70s will be mainly reserved for Connecticut, with some localized instances in eastern MA and adjacent south central NH not 100% out of the cards. Generally expect 50-60 in central NH, southern Maine (some above 60 possible), and most of Vermont, and 60-70 in Massachusetts and Rhode Island (mainly at/above 64).
Expect this to be accompanied by mostly cloudy to cloudy skies.
Expect a line of rain this afternoon and evening – starting between Noon and 5 PM (earliest west), with more widespread rain in northern New England beginning this morning; while action in southern New England will be also widespread, it will be a bit more abbreviated. Expect rain for all to wind down between 8 and 10 PM. In addition to areas of heavy rain, gusty winds up to 40 mph are possible, as some isolated thunderstorms are possible; the NWS Taunton technical discussion notes the potential for a brief and isolated tornado if low level lapse rates and instability are higher than current guidance indicates. However, I don’t see any reason to be concerned right now; just keep an eye to the skies, and if they become necessary, the warnings.
Enjoy your Friday!
