Saturday was a spectacular summer day in Southern New England. The temperature reached the low 80s inland while a sea breeze kept the coast in the 70s. Saturday night will be mainly clear and comfortably mild, with lows in the upper 50s to low 60s.
Sunday will be mostly sunny with highs in the mid 80s inland, and mid to upper 70s at the coast. There will be a 10-15 mph southerly breeze. It will not be too humid, with dew points in the upper 50s to low 60s.
Muggier weather is in the forecast for next week. It will get warmer, too. Monday should be partly to mostly sunny, with highs in the mid 80s inland, and upper 70s at the coast with a 10-20 mph southwest breeze. Monday night will be muggy and mild, with lows in the low to mid 60s. Patchy fog is possible near the coast early Tuesday, but it should burn off to partly sunny skies. It will be warm and muggy, with highs in the mid to upper 80s inland, and 70s near the beach.
The same pattern will persist through the midweek. There will continue to be a warm southwesterly breeze and high humidity. Patchy fog is possible in the morning, and the afternoons will be hazy and humid. It looks like it will stay dry on Wednesday, but passing thunderstorms are possible on Thursday afternoon. Highs may flirt with 90 inland, while it stays 10-15 degrees cooler near the coast, Cape Cod, and the islands.
Right now, the 4th of July forecast is fairly uncertain. An approaching cold front may bring rain from time to time during the day. Thunderstorms are possible. There is also a potential connection between the cold front and a storm system that now sits off the Southeastern United States coast. If it lingers off the coast as some models are forecasting, it could become a tropical system, and enhance the moisture feeding into the cold front. The bottom line is to stay tuned to the forecast for the 4th and next weekend, but right now it looks somewhat unsettled.
