Unsettled Tuesday, hot for the 4th of July

Showers and thunderstorms will continue to be a theme in Southern New England into the midweek. Monday featured severe thunderstorms, tornado warnings, and flash flooding in parts of Massachusetts and Connecticut. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible Monday night. It will stay mild and very humid.

Tuesday looks similar to Monday, with plenty of clouds, muggy conditions, and highs in the 70s to low 80s. Once again, it looks like the lion’s share of the showers and t-storms will be over central and western New England. RI and SE MA will see scattered showers and thunderstorms. There may be some fog near the coast – especially early and late in the day.

After a damp, mild, and muggy start, there is a better chance of seeing some sunshine on Wednesday afternoon. It will be warm and muggy, with highs in the low to mid 80s inland, and 70s near the coast. An onshore breeze will continue, and rough surf is possible at area beaches. A few spotty afternoon and early-evening showers and thunderstorms cannot be ruled out.

The weather is looking quite warm and humid for the Fourth of July. There may be some low clouds and fog early in the day, but that will burn off to hazy sunshine and warm conditions. It will be a typical mid-summer day, with highs in the mid to upper 80s inland, and near 80 at the coast. It looks like a fine beach day, with a southwesterly breeze. The weather should hold for any fireworks displays on the night of the Fourth. The only potential fly in the ointment could be some fog near the coast.

Overall, the weather looks very warm to hot through the weekend into early next week. Scattered t-storms are possible on Saturday. Highs will flirt with 90° inland, and be in the 80s near the coast.
