Tuesday was one of the more active weather days in recent memory in Southern New England. Storms hammered Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts in the morning, and a second round pounded Massachusetts in the afternoon. The weather looks quieter on Wednesday, with just the slight chance of a pop-up inland thundershower.
It will be sunny and noticeably less humid in the morning. The low temperature will be in the mid 60s. Some clouds will develop by midday, and the afternoon looks partly cloudy. There is a slight chance of a passing thundershower inland on Wednesday afternoon. The greatest threat from any storm would be for small hail and lightning. Most of Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts will stay dry. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s. There will be a 10-20 mph west breeze. Wednesday night looks clear and comfortably mild, with lows in the low to mid 60s.
Thursday will be another decent day without a lot of humidity. Look for mostly sunny skies, and highs in the low to mid 80s. There will be a west-southwest breeze. The temperature will fall into the 60s under clear skies at night.
Morning sunshine will give way to some afternoon clouds. It looks like a slow-developing storm near the Mid-Atlantic coast will stay away for most or all the day. Highs will be in the upper 70s to low 80s.
We’re still keeping an eye on the storm near the Mid-Atlantic coast this weekend. The latest trend is for it to stay a bit farther away, and that bodes well for keeping it dry and pleasant in Southeastern New England. There is a chance of rain Friday night into Saturday morning, but a completely dry stretch is on the table, too. We’ll nail down this forecast in the next day or so. Highs will likely be in the 70s on Saturday. Lows will be in the low to mid 60s Saturday night. Sunday looks partly sunny with highs in the low 80s.
