From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


The gray and gloomy weather for the remainder of the day. Low pressure will continue to push towards New England this afternoon, spreading showers and a few thunderstorms into the area from southwest to northeast across the state. This is the same batch of showers and thunderstorms that caused all of the severe weather around the Greater Boston area this morning. That being said… the showers and thunderstorms have weakened and therefore severe weather is not expected here but any thunderstorms we see could have some gusty winds and heavy downpours with them. With the clouds and showers in place, temperatures will be a bit below average today with highs only reaching the low to mid-70s for most locales. Some upper 60s are possible along the coast with a wind off the water. Showers will continue tonight, beginning to wind down from south to north across the state after midnight.


We’ll start our Tuesday under cloudy skies with a few lingering showers possible mainly over northern areas. Low pressure will move to our north, away from the area Tuesday morning allowing drier air to move into the state. As the drier air arrives, skies will brighten from south to north across the state. Humidity levels will be dropping during the day Tuesday as well so plan on a more comfortable feel to the air Tuesday. Temperatures will top off in the 70s to near 80° Tuesday afternoon.


The rest of the week looks pretty quiet. An area of low pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere will be spinning over the Great Lakes region. Weak disturbances wrapping around the upper low may be enough to give northern and western areas a chance of an afternoon Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Otherwise each of those days will feature a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the mid-70s to around 80°. At this point, we don’t have any big storms in sight through the weekend.



Rest of Today: mostly cloudy and humid. Showers likely and a few thunderstorms possible. Rain could be heavy at times. Highs between 69°-75°. Southeast wind 5-15 MPH.


Tonight: mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Patchy fog. Lows between 58°-64°. South/southeast wind around 10 MPH.


Tuesday: a few lingering showers possible early mainly over northern areas then brightening skies from south to north. Turning less humid. Highs between 72°-79°. Southwest wind around 10 MPH.


Wednesday, Thursday & Friday: mix of sun and clouds. An afternoon shower possible over northern and western areas. Highs in the mid-70s to around 80°.
