Great Weather Continues; Perseids Tonight

Gorgeous summer weather will continue for the next couple of days in Southeastern New England. In addition to the warm sunshine, the weather at night should be great for viewing one of the best meteor showers of the year.

The Perseid meteor shower peaks Wednesday and Thursday nights. There may be up to 100 visible meteors per hour. Skies will be clear both nights in the Southeastern New England.
