CONNECTICUT WEATHER’S LATEST WEATHER DISCUSSION

June 19, 2019                      2:55 PM    

     A nearby frontal boundary will continue to influence our weather for another day before improvements arrive this weekend. A weak area of low pressure moving along the stalled frontal boundary will contribute to additional scattered shower development through tonight. The shower activity will briefly decrease tomorrow morning as the first low departs, but a stronger low and associated upper level disturbance will quickly move in from the west and work to lift the stationary front boundary northward as a warm front tomorrow afternoon. This will help to bring a more unstable airmass back into at least southwestern portions of the state with some increased shower and thunderstorm activity tomorrow afternoon and evening. Heavy rain looks to be the main threat in the thunderstorms, although a quicker warm front passage would open to door to more daytime heating and the possibility of a strong thunderstorm or two. A cold front will sweep through late Thursday night and allow high pressure to build in with a much drier airmass. Sunshine will develop and continue into the weekend, but the upper low lingering over eastern New England will support the mix down of a period of gusty northwesterly winds Friday afternoon through Saturday afternoon. Humidity levels will remain low through Sunday as ridging prevails delivering another mainly sunny, pleasant day. Early next week the humidity will build with a return to widespread 80s across the state. A weak frontal system will bring the next opportunity for some showers and thunderstorms Tuesday.
