We’re headed for the upper 80s this afternoon.
In this type of warm and humid environment, thunderstorms do typically erupt; however, without very much of a “trigger” expected to cause any thunderstorms to erupt, we’re looking to convey the idea that later today and tonight, this activity will be “spotty” in nature. At least, when you compare today with tomorrow, we feel strongly that tomorrow and tomorrow night will be much more “active” time frames.
The leading edge of warm and humid air is actually causing multiple showers and a few heavier thunderstorms in New England. Meanwhile, out in the Midwest, there are also a few showers and thunderstorms (not any severe weather) occurring near a cold front. Eventually, it will be the cool front that will cause a series of showers and heavier thunderstorms to erupt around here tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night. Some of Thursday’s thunderstorms may also bring strong, potentially damaging wind gusts and some large hail.
We’ll be undergoing a transition to some noticeably cooler weather on Friday, when there still could be some rain around, especially during the morning. In a worst-case scenario, there may be some rain that occurs at any time. If that were the case, our temperature would be hard-pressed to get out of the lower 60s, which is a far cry from today’s upper 80s!
