Inland heat wave possible through the weekend

The disturbance that brought an extended stretch of cloudy weather to Southern New England has moved into the interior Northeast, and that means Southern New England is in for a stretch of hot, humid weather that will likely last into next week. Hazy sunshine will be the rule during the day, with patchy low clouds and fog developing during mild, muggy nights.

Thursday may be the first day of an inland heat wave that lasts through the weekend. There may be some early clouds, but they’ll burn off to hazy, hot sunshine by mid to late morning. Highs inland will be in the upper 80s to low 90s. A southwesterly breeze will keep it in the low 80s near the coast. Check the full 4thCast at

There are no weather concerns for fireworks displays on Thursday evening. It will stay warm inland, and muggy everywhere. Overnight low temperatures will range from the upper 60s near the coast to the low to mid 70s inland. Friday looks hot and humid, with highs in the low 90s inland and 80s near the coast.

The weather will not change much over the weekend. It will continue to be hot and humid during the day, and warm and muggy at night. Afternoon showers and thunderstorms will be widely scattered in inland locations this weekend. Highs will likely reach the low to mid 90s away from the coast. At the beach, the southwest breeze will keep it 5-15° cooler. It looks like a great weekend to hit the beach for some relief from the heat!

The hot and humid weather will stick around into early next week, with a front heading for the Northeast in the middle of the week to bring showers/thunderstorms and cooler, drier weather.
