Saturday was an interesting day in Southeastern New England. When it wasn’t raining, it was gorgeous with highs near 90 inland, and in the 80s at the coast. There were, however, a few showers that popped up and moved by quickly. The shower threat ends after sunset, and it will be clear and dry after midnight.
It could be the nicest Sunday of the summer, and I hope that you can enjoy it! There will be tons of sunshine, low humidity, and warm temperatures. Highs will be 85-90 inland, and in the low to mid 80s near the coast. A 10-15 mph southwest breeze will develop in the afternoon. Sunday night looks mainly clear and mild, with lows in the mid to upper 60s.
The persistent southwest breeze will bring muggy weather back to Southeastern New England on Monday. Look for a 10-20 mph wind with a few higher gusts. Highs will be near 90 inland, and in the low to mid 80s at the coast. Skies will be mostly sunny through late in the day. Clouds will increase late Monday afternoon, and scattered thunderstorms are possible as a disturbance passes by Monday evening and night. Lows will be near 70.
The relatively warm weather will hang around through the midweek. Highs will flirt with 90 inland again on Tuesday under partly sunny skies. It will be cooler near the coast. It does not look too humid.
Wednesday’s forecast is tricky. It’s unclear if the warmth will hang on or if it will turn several degrees cooler. We’re going with a warm forecast, for now. Look for plenty of sunshine and not a lot of humidity. Highs will be in the upper 80s to low 90s inland, and low to mid 80s near the coast
LATE NEXT WEEK
The very warm pattern will end by the late next week. A storm system passing south of Block Island may come close enough to bring a few showers on Thursday – especially near the coast. The wind will shift to the north and east, and highs will be in the upper 70s to low 80s. It looks like high pressure will bring fair weather on Friday. It will be near or a bit cooler than normal for early August.
