Storms At Times Ahead

It was a warm and mainly dry start to the weekend as temps rose into the low to mid 80s.  We did have some afternoon clouds, especially over the Cape and Islands, and even a few light showers/sprinkles managed to sneak in for some across the Cape late this afternoon. 

Those drops don’t last too long though as the Cape forecast features a dry evening ahead as the weak disturbance that moved in, will move out.   With winds out of the southwest, it’ll be a milder overnight with increasing humidity.  Low clouds and patchy fog may form late.

A more unsettled picture is painted on Sunday as a warm front approaches.  It may not take long after sunrise to deal with scattered showers and storms as a few mid morning to midday storms likely pass through.  It won’t be an all day rain, in fact, in the afternoon, we’ll even see peeks of sun in between storms.  Bottom line, you’ll get some dry hours in there, but keep an eye to the sky as a few storms could be feisty too with locally strong winds. The highest threat for severe thunderstorms will be across western New England, although the Storm Prediction Center has all of southern New England under a “slight risk” for severe storms.  Highs near 80 and humidity is up.

The pattern remains unsettled on Monday before tending to dry out and turn less humid for much of the upcoming workweek.
