Weekly Outlook July 25-31, 2016

How many of you enjoyed the heat and humidity last week? You’re in luck! We’ve got more coming! How many of you enjoyed the severe weather last week? Guess what? There’s more of that coming too! Yup, it’s another summer week here in New England.


We start off with Monday, which will be hot and humid after a warm front crosses the region. As a cold front start to approach from the northwest later in the day, it will likely trigger thunderstorms across the region. Some of these storms could be strong to severe, so if you’re planning to be outside late in the day, keep an eye to the sky. The front moves through and then Tuesday is much drier, but still hot. High pressure keeps it hot on Wednesday too.Another front comes through on Thursday, with some additional showers and thunderstorms possible. After that, things get tricky. The front stalls out south of New England and a wave of low pressure rides along it, likely giving us some additional showers and thunderstorms on Friday. The big question is next weekend. Does another wave of low pressure ride along the front, giving is more showers along with cooler conditions, or does high pressure build in, pushing the front farther to the south? We’ll be optimistic for now, and go with high pressure building in, but keep in mind that this could change.
