The high humidity hanging around most of this week will be with us through the weekend. There will be showers and thunderstorms added to the mix for several days into next week.
It will be a damp and mild start to the day. Look for low clouds, fog, mist, and scattered showers and thunderstorms. Lows will be in the low 70s. The day will be partly to mostly cloudy with scattered showers and storms. Most of the time it will be dry, but any thunderstorms could contain torrential downpours. Highs will be in the upper 70s to low 80s. There will be a 10-15 mph southeast breeze. Scattered showers and storms are possible Friday night. There may be more locally dense fog. Lows will be in the low 70s.
It is more of the same on Saturday. After a damp start, there may be some sunny breaks. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop in the afternoon and continue into the early evening. Highs will be near 80 with high humidity and an east-southeast breeze. It will not be a washout, but keep your eyes to the sky. Saturday night looks damp and mild. Lows will be in the low 70s with patchy fog.
The disturbance lingers overhead on Sunday. You can expect most of the day to be dry, with pop-up showers and storms possible at any time. The action will likely not be widespread. An offshore storm will not be close enough for any significant impact in Southeastern New England. The rip current risk will increase at area beaches, but rain and wind from the storm will be well offshore. Highs will be in the upper 70s to low 80s on Sunday.
EARLY NEXT WEEK
Another disturbance will approach from the west early next week. Monday and Tuesday will be partly to mostly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms. It will stay very humid. Highs will be near 80, and lows will be near 70. The system will likely move offshore by Wednesday morning. The wind will shift to the west, and less humid weather will arrive. It will be seasonably warm Wednesday and Thursday.
