Quiet weather continues in Southeastern New England through the midweek. The temperature will fall into the 50s again by dawn on Wednesday, and a nice warm-up is ahead in the afternoon. Highs will reach the low to mid 80s with plenty of sunshine and low humidity. The warmest conditions will be inland.
It will get a bit muggier on Thursday as clouds arrive late in the day. Overall, it should be another nice one with highs in the 80s. Passing showers and t-storms are possible on Friday, but it does not look like a washout. It will be very humid, with dew points climbing back into the low 70s. The shower/storm threat ends by early Saturday, and the weekend looks dry.
Expect highs in the 80s both Saturday and Sunday. It will be a bit cooler on Sunday with an onshore breeze. Both days will feature typical late-August humidity – not unbearable, but not quite dry either. The weather looks dry into next week before showers threaten again in the midweek.
We are watching the tropics, and, specifically, the western Caribbean where a disturbance may become Tropical Storm Hermine in the next couple of days. It’s heading west, and could eventually threaten the Southeastern United States. Tropical Storm Gaston may become a hurricane, but it’s not heading for land. It will move northwest into the open Atlantic Ocean.
