Southerly winds have established themselves over the region, pumping muggy air northward into New England and bringing an abundance of clouds and areas of fog. In addition to the gray skies, a few showers (embedded tropical downpours too) have popped up here and there and passed over the region this morning.
While Father’s Day has gotten off to a murky and somewhat damp start, conditions gradually improve over the second half of the day. Skies will slowly brighten this afternoon and we should see some pockets of blue sky and partial sunshine break out here and there. Temperatures will climb into the lower and middle 70s. Gusty southwest winds will develop as well.
The mid-morning visible satellite image shows plenty of clouds over the region but pockets of sunshine scattered about Southern New England as well as some clearing skies south of the region.
