Monday’s 1°Outside Insights: Summer Heat Will End the Week

If you’ve followed us for awhile, you know our Insights video is the deep dive in meteorology, where today, Matt Noyes explains the inner workings of the warmup for the end of this week, complete with humidity and a chance for severe thunderstorms.  There should be a few showers and storms in the days ahead, too.

Current Weather Pattern

We continue to experience the effects of a persistent upper-level storm that has been lingering for the past few days. This storm, visible on the satellite loop, is characterized by a swirling motion in the atmosphere with several lobes of energy rotating around it. These bursts of energy, indicated by green, yellow, orange, and red colors on the map, are moving in a cyclonic flow, contributing to scattered showers and storms.

Surface Conditions

At ground level, the surface storm center aligns with the jet stream level storm, currently situated northeast of New England. Most of the significant moisture has moved south or east, but there is enough interaction between the cold upper air and relatively warm ground air to produce cumulus clouds and potential showers and thunderstorms.

Daily Forecast Breakdown

  • Today: Expect scattered showers primarily in northern New England, with a slight chance in central and southern regions. The interactive radar on our app will help you track current and upcoming showers.
  • This Evening: Showers will be more likely in the Lakes region and central/southern Vermont. An isolated shower is possible near Boston Harbor and eastern Massachusetts.
  • Tomorrow: A mix of sun and clouds with a chance of pop-up showers, especially due to the collision between the sea breeze and the northwest wind. Temperatures will be seasonable.
  • Wednesday: Similar pattern with a few showers or a thunderstorm possible here and there. Temperatures will reach the 70s even at the coast before a sea breeze cools things down.
  • Thursday: No storms expected as the heat begins to build, with highs in the 80s.
  • Friday: Hot and humid with dew points close to 70 degrees. Showers and storms are likely, with severe thunderstorms possible in the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will approach 90 degrees.
