All right, I think this is going to be a fun forecast. All the enjoyment of a mid-Atlantic forecast with none of the pressure of forecasting for New York!
At 1253PM, ET, New Haven was reporting overcast skies with a temperature of 61 degrees. The region was smothered in clouds as an area of low pressure lurked off the Delmarva Peninsula. To the southwest, a broad swath of rain was moving through central New Jersey, bearing down on New York City, while where skies had cleared, and an advancing upper level trough was sinking into the region, isolated thunderstorms were popping up east of Scranton in Pennsylvania. Both the surface low and the thunderstorm activity are interconnected, and both are advancing on New Haven.
The surface system will bring some light rain, potentially, to the area, but the bulk of it will continue to slide south of Long Island. The upper low producing thunderstorms in the eastern Great Lakes will be robbed of its instability, but rain will continue to barrel southeast towards Connecticut. The stratiform rain will be a persistent threat through the day Tuesday and into Wednesday morning. Fortunately, the wave is shortwaved enough to be progressive, and will clear out for a pleasant Wednesday afternoon.

That’s an unfortunate forecast. You shouldn’t be burdened with high temperatures in the 50s in June. Here is the radar, with all that rain to the south of Long Island, and a pop up storm in Pennsylvania
