Storms Break The Heat

This warm/hot stretch of summer weather is almost over! Tuesday will be the last day with near 90 degree heat before temperatures tumble.

The change in the weather will arrive in the wake of a cold front that could trigger some thunderstorms.  There are two chances for storms on Tuesday. One early in the morning (before/around daybreak) and another in the mid-afternoon.  Both rounds of thunderstorms will be hit or miss. But anything that develops could be strong to severe. Gusty/damaging winds are the biggest threats.

Wednesday and Thursday look good with cooler temperatures and less humidity than recent days. But wet weather returns Friday and Saturday with showers or even a period of steady heavier rainfall.  We’ll be tracking the timing closely as we know our summer weekends in New England are oh, so precious!

Tonight: Increasingly humid. Patchy fog. Chance thunderstorm in spots. Low: 67-73.
Tomorrow: Chance for an early morning thunderstorm in spots. Otherwise, partly cloudy, very warm. Another chance for a hit or miss thunderstorm in the afternoon. High: 85-90.
Wednesday: Sunny to partly cloudy. Slight chance for an afternoon shower. Cooler and less humid than recent days. High: 80-85.
Thursday: Mostly sunny, increasing clouds late. High: 75-80.
Friday: Increasing clouds with showers or areas of rain developing. High: 72-76.
Saturday: Cloudy and cooler with periods of rain. High: 73-78.
