Hot and humid weather continues Tuesday

The high temperature reached the low to mid 90s in inland Southern New England on Monday afternoon. The temperature stayed in the 80s near the coast because of an onshore breeze. The dew point was in the upper 60s to low 70s putting the heat index in the mid to upper 90s inland. Isolated thunderstorms popped up in interior Southern New England during the afternoon.

It will be very mild and muggy Tuesday night. The low temperature will be in the upper 60s to low 70s. Some low clouds and haze may develop over night. Tuesday should be another scorcher with highs in the low to mid 90s inland, and in the 80s near the coast. Once again, there may be unhealthy ozone levels, and an Air Quality Alert is in effect for Rhode Island. Isolated t-storms are possible inland again on Tuesday.

There will be no change in the weather Tuesday night into Wednesday. It will be uncomfortably mild and humid Tuesday night. Lows will range from the upper 60s near the coast to the mid 70s in the cities. Wednesday will be partly sunny, very warm, and very humid. There is a better chance of showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday, especially in the afternoon and evening. High temperatures on Wednesday will depend on the amount of sunshine before the showers develop. With lows in the 70s, some areas may quickly reach the upper 80s to low 90s by late-morning.

The pattern will be quite unsettled late in the workweek and into the weekend. A slow-moving weather system brings the threat of showers and thunderstorms Thursday through Sunday. It will not be raining the entire time, and it’s too early to know exactly when it will be raining. The general pattern is partly to mostly cloudy, very humid, with scattered showers and storms. It will not be as hot, with highs in the 70s to low 80s. The wind will be out of the south for several days, and rough seas and surf are possible over the weekend. It looks like the same general pattern will continue into early-July.
