Severe thunderstorms possible in parts of New England – NBC Boston

Cloudy skies with cooler than average highs are sweeping through New England and overland flow is keeping Boston and our coastal communities with highs in the 60s as we keep the possibility of active showers for Wednesday evening.

Some thunderstorms will move in and bring heavy rain, isolated wind gusts and rumbles with it. With cloudy skies prevailing, the threat of severe weather is limited, although New York has a higher risk of a few scattered severe storms and some isolated storms may persist in far western New England and Maine for the night.

Our overnight activity will end Thursday morning, bringing cloudy skies and another day with the overland flow keeping temperatures cooler (compared to our Memorial Day which brought in the 90s).

Highs will be in the 60s for Boston and the coast and the 70s inland. We will see an increasing risk of showers in the afternoon, but especially towards the evening and night.

Friday brings another round of showers, but Saturday brings better news for southern New England.

With highs in the 70s and more sunshine in our skies, showers will be limited to northern New England on Saturday. Sunday will bring a few more clouds and a slight drop in temperatures, but our showers remain mostly towards Maine.

Meanwhile, by keeping an active weather model, we’ll see chances of rain appearing much of next week in our exclusive 10-day forecast. The tops will mostly go into the 70s.
