Several chances for showers amid sunshine

A series of disturbances will move across southern New England this week, creating an unstable weather pattern for the week of Orientation. Periods of sunshine and warmth will be punctuated by showers and thunderstorms. While no particular day is expected to be rain-out, the chance for occasional showers will persist through Thursday. The most likely times for precipitation will be this morning, Wednesday night, and Thursday afternoon, although there may be a slight chance of showers outside of these times as well.

The weather pattern is expected to settle down in time for the holiday weekend, however. A high pressure system will move in from the northwest, creating sunny and calm conditions similar to those experienced at the Institute this past weekend.
