Continuity of energy from stubborn lows, to higher highs keep conditions cloudy around New England throughout Friday and some weekends.
Rain on Friday will be the heaviest with thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening, powered by energy from the sun. Precipitation is typically less than a quarter of an inch, but during thunderstorms, we’ll see up to half an inch higher in total — specifically across Worcester, Bristol County, western Plymouth and Cape County. Towards the end of the day, the showers began to end.
Slowly but surely, clouds will clear over the course of Saturday and temperatures will drop to the low-to-mid 70s. Sunnier skies await us on Sunday as warmer air sweeps in. enter. Much of the area will experience high temperatures in the 80s, under dry skies.
The pardon from the rain won’t last long. We are monitoring another system early next week. Its origins will bring severe weather across the Ark-La-Tex and I-20 corridors. While the storm’s DNA will change, it will warrant tracking early next week.
