August Monthly Forecast: Warm...With More Great Vacation Weeks Ahead
Incredible Start to the Week Will Yield to Recurring Pattern of Midweek Humidity & Storms

Great Weekend Ahead - Isolated Thunder Possible

LKN_NBCU_POP_D1_NEWENG (4) LKN_NBCU_POP_D1_NEWENG (4)An incredible stretch of weather is yet again setting up for New England.  A large dome of high pressure has delivered enough dry air for abundant sunshine, a light wind promoting coastal sea breezes and cool nights with comfortable days – at least, for now.  After a great start Saturday, there’s a 20-40% chance of a shower or thunderstorm Saturday late day and evening, particularly inland, as more humid air slowly moves back into New England.  Southern New England will notice the change in air Saturday evening and night, whether or not your town sees a thunderstorm, and humidity will linger for the southern half of New England on Sunday with another low but present chance of an afternoon or evening thunderstorm.  In Northern New England, Sunday actually brings some really pleasant and comfortable air that will likely almost eliminate the chance of showers and make for a splendid day.  The comfortable, dry air in Northern New England will sink south for a great Monday far and wide, before deeper heat and humidity return for the midweek.  Though we aren’t forecasting another heat wave yet, we will have four days – Tuesday through Thursday – all within a couple degrees of 90, so that’s a possibility.  The early call on next weekend?  The same as the last several when they’ve first appeared on our exclusive First Alert 10-day forecast: nice!
