Monday was a stunningly nice day in Southern New England. There was wall to wall sunshine, and highs reached the low 80s away from the coast. It was about 10° cooler at the coast because of a southwest breeze. The air was warm and dry, with dew points in the 40s to low 50s. The threshold dew point for muggy weather is in the low 60s, and it may make it there on Tuesday.
Monday night will be mainly clear and comfortably mild. Lows will be in the mid to upper 50s. Tuesday looks partly sunny, breezy, and warm. Highs will be in the low 80s again away from the coast. A southerly breeze will keep it in the 70s near the coast and Narragansett Bay. The dew point will creep up to the upper 50s to low 60s during the day. While certainly not oppressively humid, may notice a bit of mugginess.
Clouds will increase Tuesday evening, and showers are possible after midnight. It will be damp and mild, with lows in the upper 50s to low 60s. Scattered showers, with a chance of a thunderstorm, are ahead for Wednesday. It will be cooler, with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s. The best chance of rain is in the morning.
Another system will follow on the heels of Wednesday’s front, and more showers are likely on Thursday. Widespread showers are likely during the day, and the potential exists for some heavy downpours – particularly near the coast. Highs will be in the 60s. The shower threat ends late Thursday night as the storm pulls away from the coast.
Fine weather is in the forecast for Friday through the weekend. Highs will be in the 70s with partly to mostly sunny skies on Friday. The weekend looks dry, with highs in the mid to upper 70s, and lows in the mid to upper 50s. Saturday will likely be the sunnier day. Clouds may drift in from west to east by late Sunday. Showers may return Monday afternoon or Tuesday.
