There's plenty of humidity and plenty of instability in place this morning, allowing for a round of showers and storms to roll on through already. Through 9:00AM, I do expect a round of thunderstorms to move through the area, most widespread south of the Pike. Some of these morning storms will contain locally strong winds, lots of cloud to ground lightning and heavy rain.
From late morning through lunch, breaks of sun should be enough to warm us up well into the 80s. As temperatures continue to warm, more scattered thunderstorms will fire, especially mid to late afternoon. We'll have to watch these storms too as the potential of damaging wind gusts and hail is there. Not all towns will see the storms, as is the nature of the game with these summer time boomers, but we do need to keep an eye to the sky. The Storm Prediction Center out of Oklahoma has placed eastern New England under a slight risk for severe thunderstorms thanks to supportive winds aloft for storms, along with a slow moving cold front moving through this afternoon.
Storms wind down this evening. We start lowering humidity tonight, and a cooler pattern prevails.
Next round of widespread rain may arrive late Friday and hang into Saturday.
