Storms lead us into a cooler pattern

Good Tuesday to one and all. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms have been common across the commonwealth in recent weeks. Tropical temps have been ruling the thermometers. The steam and the storms continue this week, but much cooler changes show up this weekend and next week.

Let’s start with Tuesday. Highs should hit the upper 80s to near 90, but the heat index will be much higher, courtesy of all the humidity in the air. Storms should develop during the afternoon and evening, and a few could be strong or severe. I will set you up to track the storms in a bit.

Additional rounds of storms will be possible Wednesday and Thursday as highs stay in the upper 80s to low 90s.

Rain and storm chances increase Friday and Saturday as a bigger system moves in from the northwest:

EuroVery heavy rains will be possible during those days, and that could cause some local high-water concerns.

The air coming behind that system is much cooler. Check out the huge dip in the jet stream:

CanadianHighs later in the weekend and early next week might not get out of the 70s for a few days. This cooler-than-normal pattern should then continue into the Fourth of July weekend.

In the short term, let’s track the storms that could be strong or severe Tuesday.
