Regional Weather Story
National Weather Service Taunton MA
400 PM EDT Thu Aug 17 2017

Clouds will rapidly increase across the region tonight ahead of
a warm front that will be approaching southern New England.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms may move into western portions
of Massachusetts and in northern Connecticut toward daybreak.
With increasing moisture and cloudiness, overnight lows will
remain in the lower to mid 60s.

Showers and thunderstorms will be widespread on Friday and Friday
night as a warm front pushes through in the morning, followed by a
cold front late Friday night. Rainfall totals of 0.75 to 1.25 inches
are expected by late Friday night, but locally heavier amounts up to
2 inches are possible in any slow-moving thunderstorms. This could
cause ponding of water on area roadways but it is not expected to
cause river flooding. It will be quite muggy with high temperatures
holding in the 70s and dewpoints in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

A few showers or thunderstorms could linger along the eastern
Massachusetts coast early Saturday morning as the cold front moves
offshore. Drier air will move in aloft, with increasing sunshine as
the day progresses. At the surface, it will remain quite humid,
however. Highs will be in the mid 80s with dewpoints remaining
near 70.

High pressure will provide sunny days and clear nights Sunday and
Monday. Highs mainly mid 80s Sunday and upper 80s to near 90 over
the interior on Monday.
