Look for swings between showery, sunny

Good day to you! In the broader view, we will continue to have the northern branch of the jet stream pushing low pressure systems from the eastern Pacific Ocean eastward across the northern part of the United States.

These systems will continue to land in New England every few days. Given this pattern, we can expect more periods of drier sunny days over the next week, followed by periods of showery, muggy days. Temperatures will continue to remain at seasonal levels or just below. No heat waves of any kind of are on the horizon, so summer heat worshippers are not going to be too happy with this forecast.

Having said all that, let's get to the details!

For Wednesday and Thursday, high pressure will build into the region and provide us with mostly sunny days, low humidity, and calm weather conditions. Highs on Wednesday are expected to reach the low 70s in the mountains and upper 70s in the valley in the southeastern areas of Windham County. Lows will dip into the upper 40s to low 50s for a chilly night Wednesday evening!

Highs on Thursday will be similar to Wednesday, but humidity and clouds will be building later in the day, ahead of a warm front that will push towards the region on Friday. Lows will be in the upper 50s. If this warm front moves into the region faster than expected as of this writing, we could see showers and thunderstorms on Thursday night.

Otherwise, Friday and at least the first half of Saturday look to be the most unsettled period of the upcoming week, thanks to low pressure that will be traversing the Great Lakes on its way east into southern Canada and northern New England.

This system will float its warm front towards us very early on Friday bringing the chance for showers and possibly a thunderstorm during the day and evening. Highs are expected to be in the low 70s with lows in the upper 50s, with continued chance for showers Friday night.

A cold front will clear the region Saturday, resulting in showers during the first part of the day, and then partly sunny skies developing later in the afternoon. In addition, drier air will be working into the region Saturday night and, certainly, into Sunday. Highs on Saturday will be in the mid 70s with lows in the upper 50s.

Sunday into early next week looks like mainly calm and drier weather, with highs and lows continuing in the mid 70s and upper 50s, respectively.

Have a great week!
