Cold front creates stormy weather tonight, comfortable weather tomorrow

By Meteorologist Mike Skurko

A cold front is slicing through the Northeast this evening, allowing the severe thunderstorms to develop out of this hot, humid air mass ahead of it.  The surface map this evening shows a pretty fine line as to where this frontal boundary is  – humid and unsettled ahead of it, comfortable and quiet behind it:

This front will push through Western Massachusetts overnight, but may stall out for a brief moment just off the coast.  This may allow a decent amount of cloud cover to start off the day, but skies will eventually clear from north to south later in the afternoon.  More importantly, the drier air mass behind the front WILL move in tomorrow.  Check out Futurecast’s depiction of temperatures and dewpoints in Springfield on Thursday – much better than the 90-degree heat we’ve dealt with the last two days:

Sunny skies make it a fantastic pair of days on Friday and Saturday, with humidity continuing to stay low.  Dewpoints across the Northeast stay in the 50s, shown on this model in blue:
