GFS computer model forecast for Friday, June 28th.

I hope you're all staying cool, because temperatures have reached the lower and middle 90s across interior CT! Along with this heat, dew points are sitting in the mid and upper 60s, making it feel quite uncomfortable outside. A few thunderstorms have popped up in eastern NY, and a couple have just sprouted west of Hartford. There is a chance of thunderstorms through this evening for much of the state. The SPC has even issued a slight risk of severe storms.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, and Thursday will consist of much of the same hazy, hot, and humid weather that we've seen over the past couple of days. By the time we reach Friday, temperatures will be cooling off into the lower 80s, but it doesn't necessarily mean we clear out the storms. In fact, there is a chance of showers and thunderstorms each day through at least the first few days of July.

The picture I posted above is from the latest GFS model, which is bringing about 1.5" of rain to most of CT as a 24 hr rainfall total from 3 pm Thursday to 3 pm Friday. The rainfall totals do gradually decrease into the weekend, but a few showers and storms will be around. Many other models show a similar situation of about 1-3" of rain from these scattered thunderstorms over the next several days. As many of you know, the places that receive the most rainfall will just depend on where the thunderstorms pop-up. 

So the question many of you want to know is, when will we get some real summertime weather? Wall to wall sunshine and low to mid 80s? Well, unfortunately, not within the next week or so, but you never know, things may improve as we head further into the month of July.
