Our NBC10 Boston, NECN and Telemundo New England Weather Team continues a First Alert for most of New England this afternoon and evening as humid and warm air will team with an upper level disturbance to touch off showers and thunderstorms – some of which will be damaging. The morning starts with muggy sun and clouds but by midday, weak showers moving through Connecticut will strengthen and expand as they jog northeast, only the first of what will be a few rounds of showers and thunderstorms through the second half of the day, evening and into the overnight. Heavy rain is a given with all storms, owing to the humid air, but locally damaging wind will occur in stronger storms and a tornado is not entirely impossible with shifting winds aloft. The lowest risk of thunderstorms will be Southeast MA and the Cape, where we’ll wait until late evening and night for storms to arrive. Thursday should start with predawn rain that breaks into isolated showers and thunder as humid air lingers. By Friday, winds of change will carry more comfortable air into New England but temperatures will remain warm…then the weekend delivers slightly cooler temperatures and great weather, save for a North Country shower or storm Saturday. It looks like a similar pattern sets up next week in our exclusive First Alert 10-day forecast, with a heightened chance of showers at midweek, then what could be another great weekend, though right now that’s still just a bit off the 10-day.
