• Temps will go up quickly, prompting T-Storm threat this evening


    From FOX 25 meteorologist Sarah Wroblewski:

    It sure felt like summer this morning with fog, scattered showers and muggy conditions. A batch of showers blossomed on radar this morning and spread eastward with a few embedded thunderstorms into the early afternoon. Some areas finally got to see a good soaking of rain and the threat is still not over. Widely scattered showers are across Connecticut that will migrate northward this afternoon as an upper level low moves northeastward over New England.

    However, we've got sunshine breaking out between those showers in CT and the line that is pushing off of the north shore. That sunshine will help boost temperatures quickly and also fuel the threat of more pop up showers later this afternoon. Like yesterday, showers will stay hit-or-miss in nature.

    Highs will range from the mid 60s to lower 70s. If clouds break apart more than the current forecast predicts and temps shoot into the middle/upper 70s, some thunderstorms will likely pop.

    The Red Sox take on the Twins at 7:10 tonight at Fenway. A passing shower (maybe a downpour with the rumble of thunder) is possible, especially early on. Have your rain gear handy, but improvement will be found as the game goes on. Remaining showers will begin to dissipate between 8 PM and 11 PM. Otherwise, mostly cloudy and muggy conditions will persist with game temps in the lower 60s. Winds: S/SE 5-10 mph.
