Varied temperatures across New England

A backdoor front has settled over the northeast and this means a large variation in temperatures today.

Across Maine, highs will stay in the 50s to 60s, with Boston also sitting in the 60s for much of the day thanks to a northeasterly flow. Around Hartford and in western Massachusetts we’ll see temps in the 70s to near 80 thanks to the warm sector and a southerly flow.

First alert for storms moving in this afternoon and evening

The front will contribute to lift and some sunshine leading to instability and this means a First Alert day/evening for severe to severe thunderstorms. Damaging wind, hail, heavy rain and lightning are the main threats. The storms and showers won’t be quite as strong as they move into the more stable air mass over northern and eastern New England tonight. Showers and some thunderstorms are likely in Boston by noon.

Severe storms possible in New England tonight.

The low pressure system will still be to the north and nearby until tomorrow. That means scattered showers are likely Tuesday afternoon as temps remain fall-like and in the 60s. Wednesday we get a break with more sunshine and highs in the low 70s. Then another cold front approaches Wednesday night into Thursday and this system may also bring scattered severe thunderstorms.

After this rain wave, we see the coolest air of the season for Friday! Highs only reach the 50s and 60s with a gusty wind. Then a slight warming trend returns to the weekend when we see 70s again.
