Forecast: Isolated Thunderstorms Could Be Severe Today And Wed.

This article is more than 3 years old.

It was a nice overnight with comfortable sleeping conditions and light winds. A cold front is pushing east today and will help ignite showers and thunderstorms.

There have been a few of these this morning and this will be followed by a break in the action. Later today, after lunch, a second chance of more storms will occur.

Some of these storms could become severe with some gusty winds and even some small hail. It will feel a bit muggy today and quite warm. This is our last day of warmth for a while.

Tomorrow and through the weekend an upper level trough will bring colder air in New England. This air will be cool for June and some of the morning lows will fall into the 40s, quite chilly. I don’t expect any 30s here, but it is highly likely the higher elevations of northern New England will tumble under the 40-degree mark Wednesday or Thursday morning.

The threat of showers will be gone Thursday and Friday, but as mentioned it will be cool, with almost fall-like air.

There may be a few more showers in the Saturday night or Sunday time window. Temperatures will also continue on the cooler side of average staying in the lower to middle 70s Saturday, but even cooler Sunday.

The pollen count has been very high the past few weeks, but with several opportunities for some shower activity it will hopefully begin a decline. The season for tree pollen is nearing the end, but the grasses are now in bloom.
