Cooler Air Arrives for the Beginning of July

Today is the last real day of heat and humidity for SNE. Temperatures this afternoon have arisen into the upper 80's to lower 90's as forecasted yesterday. Thunderstorms have not developed yet; there is a few showers scattered over western portions of New England, but most of the activity has stayed down to our south over the Mid Atlantic, where there is a *Severe Thunderstorm Watch* from New York City through Philadelphia and the Baltimore, Washington DC metropolitan areas. The NWS is concerned for severe thunderstorms in our parts too, especially along and south of the Mass Pike. The watch may get extended into parts of CT, RI, and MA as well later in the afternoon, should these storms start to explode. The NWS out of Taunton is playing it conservatively for the moment.

Either way, this front brings some cool air tomorrow with highs only reaching the lower to mid 70's, temperatures that have been our overnight lows the past few nights. Overnight lows will now fall into the 50's once again and even could fall lower on Sunday morning with lows falling into the upper 40's in a few locations. If you go out late, you may want to bring a light jacket or sweater with you!

The cool air lasts through early next week before it possibly warms up again by the 4th, back into the 80's.
