Forecast: More Dry Weather This Week With Warmer Temperatures

The week ahead looks like a great one in terms of weather. There is going to be one possible day with some rain, but otherwise it looks sunny and pleasant. Of course, there is a down side to all this dry weather as we still need rain.

We’ve now quickly gone another 10 days without any appreciable rain, and no end in this pattern is in sight. This means we will likely enter June in dry conditions, meaning problems with drought could quickly take hold. Thus far, we haven’t had any heat, but this can change in a matter of days.

High pressure keeps us on the cool and dry side today. A storm system will pass south of New England on Tuesday evening and bring some clouds and just the chance of some showers, mostly along the south coast.

Clouds will linger on Wednesday. There may be some clearing later in the day, especially north of the Mass Pike and areas further from the ocean system.

Temperatures will be a bit below average today and into the middle of the week. But, by the time we get to the end of the week, most of us will see above-average readings in the 70s.

An early look into the upcoming weekend features sunshine and warm readings. The one thing I will be watching is if there is a shift to the path of another low pressure area to the south. If this moves north, it could bring clouds and showers late in the weekend. However, the pattern is very dry and this seems unlikely to change.
