Showers and thunderstorms mostly missed Southern New England during the day on Thursday. The end result was some afternoon sunshine, and highs in the mid 70s to low 80s. Showers and storms were breaking out in NY late in the afternoon, and there is the slight chance of seeing some of that action in Southern New England Thursday night. For the most part, however, the best chance of getting rain is Friday and Friday night.
Thursday night will be mild and muggy, with some clouds, and the chance of a passing shower or thunderstorm. There may be patchy fog near the coast. Lows will be in the upper 60s to low 70s. Friday looks mostly cloudy with showers and t-storms possible throughout the day. There is the potential for stronger storms with gusty winds in interior Southern New England – primarily west of Worcester, MA. It will be very muggy with highs in the mid 70s near the coast to near 80 inland. Showers and thunderstorms are possible Friday evening with temperatures staying in the low 70s.
The shower/storm threat ends by mid-morning Saturday as a cold front moves offshore. Saturday should feature increasing sunshine with decreasing humidity. The high temperature will be in the mid 80s inland and low 80s near the coast. Delightful weather is likely Saturday night and Sunday. The temperature will dip into the upper 50s to low 60s by dawn Sunday under clear skies. Sunday afternoon will be quite nice, with sunshine and highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. Don’t forget to check out the Perseid meteor shower Sunday night. It looks mainly clear with lows in the mid to upper 50s.
The nice weather will hang on early next week. Monday should be partly to mostly sunny with highs near 80 at the coast and in the low to mid 80s inland. An approaching cold front will trigger showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday. It will be a muggy, warm day. The showers should pass by Wednesday morning and it’s right back to more clear, dry late-summer weather.
