Warm/Humid, Chance of T-Storms Tuesday

The temperature reached 90° in Providence for the third time in the last six days on Monday. The warm and humid weather continues Tuesday, and there’s a chance of thunderstorms, too.

It will be mainly clear to partly cloudy with the chance of thunderstorms late at night. You can expect it to be mild and humid. Lows will be in the upper 60s to low 70s.

Thunderstorms are possible around dawn, and then again during the day as a cold front slowly moves through. It will be warm and humid, with highs near 90, and in the 80s at the beach. The southwest wind will kick up to 10-20 mph. Skies will become partly cloudy. The scattered thunderstorm threat continues into the night. Lows will be in the mid to upper 60s on Wednesday morning.

A stray inland shower or storm cannot be ruled on Wednesday. For most it will be a partly sunny, warm, and less humid day. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s with a west-southwest breeze. The temperature will dip into the low to mid 60s under mainly clear skies Wednesday night.

We will most likely squeeze out another nice day on Thursday. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. The humidity will be low with a westerly breeze.

The forecast is uncertain for Friday and Saturday. A storm system moving off the Mid-Atlantic coast will likely bring some rain between midday Friday and Saturday afternoon, but the exact timing of the rain is questionable. Right now, we’re leaning towards rain or showers Friday night into Saturday morning. The best chance of steady rain is near the coast. Highs will be near 80 Friday, and in the 70s on Saturday. When it’s raining, the temperature may fall into the mid to upper 60s with a northeast breeze. If you have plans Friday or Saturday, keep your eyes on this forecast. Sunday looks like a decent day with partly cloudy skies and highs near 80.
