From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


High pressure will slide into New England and give us a beautiful start to the work week. We’ll see lots of sunshine today with highs topping off near or a little above average. Temperatures will range from 73°-80° this afternoon. A weakening cold front will approach the area tonight bringing us increasing clouds during the nighttime hours.


We’ll start our Tuesday with some lingering clouds during the morning followed by brightening skies during the afternoon. Temperatures will reach the 70s to near 80° for highs. A cold front is forecast to come through the area on Wednesday. We’ll have a warm and muggy airmass in place on Wednesday with highs in the mid-70s to low 80s. As the cold front moves through, we’ll see scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the day. Some the thunderstorms could be strong to severe so we’ll be keeping an eye on the radar especially Wednesday afternoon. The cold front will clear the state Wednesday night bringing the showers and thunderstorms to an end followed by clearing skies late. High pressure will build in and we’ll see sunshine return to our forecast for Thursday. Thursday looks like another beautiful day with lower humidity and high temperatures in the 70s to near 80°. An upper level low pressure system is forecast to pass to our north and east on Friday bringing us a few clouds to end the work week.
