Cool and Damp on Wednesday

Nice weather managed to hang on through most of the day in Rhode Island. Highs reached the 80s near Providence before a wind shift to the northeast brought cooler weather in the afternoon. While it was still pleasant in Rhode Island, it turned cloudy and damp late in the day in Southeastern Massachusetts. The temperature tumbled into the mid to upper 50s.

Tuesday night looks cloudy with scattered showers and a possible thunderstorm. It will continue to cool into the low 50s overnight. Patchy fog and mist is possible. Wednesday morning will be dreary, with occasional showers, drizzle, and mist, and temperatures holding in the low to mid 50s. There will be a 10-20 mph northeasterly breeze. Skies may brighten by mid to late afternoon, but the temperature will most likely not make it out of the 50s – about 15° below normal for late-May.
