Forecast discussion: We started the weekend off with great weather, as bright sunshine was over all of New England, including Boston. However, north-northeast winds off the cooler ocean kept temperatures on Saturday well below normal. As we turn the page on the calendar, June will begin with warmer temperatures.
One of the reasons we will see warmer temperatures is the shift in the wind direction. Our winds will turn from the north-northeast to the south-southeast direction. This will allow for warmer air to filter into Southern New England, and bring our temperatures inland to the lower 70’s. We will have clear to partly cloudy skies for Sunday night, with more sunshine during the first half of Monday. High temperatures will actually feel like summer, with highs reaching 80 degrees. As we move into the evening commute, we will begin to see increasing clouds.
As we move into early Tuesday morning, a warm front from the west will slowly move towards New England. We will begin to see isolated showers, before the precipitation becomes heavier, especially during the overnight hours. We will see moderate rain and isolated thunderstorms at times. The heavier rainfall will begin to taper off through Wednesday morning, before all precipitation ends before midnight. As we head into the following weekend, a high pressure system will provide us with dry weather. Temperatures will remain slightly below normal.
Also, tomorrow is the beginning of the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season. Predictions this year is actually showing a slightly below average year. However, the American model is showing some sort of circulation forming in the northern Bay of Campeche by Wednesday.
