Monday Delight, Tuesday Shot of Rain; Week Ends With Deeper Summer Warmth
An Excellent Summer Stretch Unfolds for the Fourth

Tuesday Shot of Rain, Then Resurgence of Warmth

BLOG1A shot of rain for our Tuesday comes ahead of a quick return to summer warmth, but also means areas of rain and thunder with some heavy downpours as humid air pushes north into Southern New England.  While the rain begins as showers, then steady rain, from west to east…indications are some torrential downpours will mix in this afternoon from far Southeast Connecticut through Rhode Island into Southeast Massachusetts and may cause localized urban street flooding and even some brief flash flooding in these communities.  Elsewhere, the steadiest rain swings through late afternoon into early evening, though on a later timeframe in Central and Eastern Maine.  Additionally, an increasing southeast wind may gust at times 35-40 mph during the afternoon, which could result in very isolated power outages.  Overnight, rain ships east and some fog will likely develop and need to burn off Wednesday morning, but will give way to sunshine with just a chance of late day and evening thunder in Western New England as high temperatures recover to the 80s inland and 70s to near 80 at the coast, where a sea breeze kicks up and halts the temperature rise.  Warmth continues to build Thursday after morning fog burns off, with inland high temperatures 85 to 90 degrees and coastlines once again kept a bit cooler owing to a sea breeze.  We may finally shake the sea breeze Friday, carrying warmth all the way to the beaches with increasing humidity that eventually raises the chance of scattered showers and thunder Saturday and Sunday.  A shot of slightly cooler and drier air starts next week, but it looks like summer warmth, humidity and associated scattered showers and thunder return to the forecast in time for July Fourth, at the end of our exclusive First Alert 10-day forecast.
