From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

The cold front that brought us some showers and thunderstorms yesterday and last night is located just east of the state this morning. West/southwest winds behind the front are ushering a cooler and less humid airmass into the region. An area of low pressure is spinning over Quebec today as well. Disturbances wrapping around the upper low will keep us under the gun for some showers and thunderstorms today and a few showers Thursday. Some of the thunderstorms today could again be strong to severe with damaging winds and hail possible. Temperatures today will be a few degrees cooler than yesterday with highs in the 70s to near 80°. Showers and thunderstorms will wind down early tonight followed by variably cloudy skies and lows in the 50s.

Another upper level disturbance is forecast to cross the state Thursday and could bring us a few showers especially over northern locales while the rest of the state sees drier weather. It’ll be a bit cooler Thursday with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s north and low to mid-70s elsewhere. Friday looks dry with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the 70s. We may see a few showers Saturday with a disturbance moving through otherwise expect a mix of sun and clouds to start the weekend with highs in the 70s. We’re watching a potential coastal storm for Saturday night into Sunday. There are still some questions as to the exact track the storm will take. Most computer models are now trending further east with the storm and taking the storm east of New England which would keep us dry for Sunday while one computer model is tracking the storm further west and bringing some moderate to heavy rain into coastal and eastern areas Saturday night into Sunday. So the exact track of the storm will determine whether we see a decent day Sunday or a wet day. We’ll keep you posted as we get closer.

Today: partly to mostly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms possible. A bit cooler and less humid. Highs between 70°-80°. Southwest wind 5-10 MPH becoming west.

Tonight: scattered showers and thunderstorms ending early then partly to mostly cloudy. Lows between 53°-58°. West wind 5-10 MPH.

Thursday: partly to mostly cloudy, cooler and less humid. A few showers possible mainly over northern areas. Highs between 68°-78°. West/northwest wind 10-15 MPH.

Friday: mix of sun and clouds. Highs in the 70s.

Saturday: mix of sun and clouds with a few showers possible. Highs in the 70s.

Sunday: mix of sun and clouds. Rain possible for areas closer to the coast. Highs in the 70s.
