The unsettled weather in late July and early August that we told you about weeks ago is on the way out of Southeastern New England. Dry and pleasant weather arrives for the midweek, and it lasts through the end of the workweek. It will get muggier this weekend, and showers/storms are possible on Saturday. Another nice stretch of weather begins Saturday afternoon and continues through the middle of next week.
Highs will be in the upper 70s to low 80s with partly to mostly sunny skies on Wednesday. The humidity will be comfortable, with dew points in the 50s to around 60 – comfortable for early August. Thursday will be sunny and seasonable with highs in the low to mid 80s. It will not be too humid on Thursday, either. Humidity will increase Friday afternoon. It will be a partly to mostly sunny and warm day, with highs in the 80s.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible around midday Saturday as a cold front passes through New England. It will be a mostly cloudy and humid day, with highs in the upper 70s to upper 80s depending on how much sunshine breaks through and whether the rain is widespread. Any showers should end by late in the day. Sunday looks nice, with lower humidity and highs in the 80s. Fine weather is ahead for the first few days of next week. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s with plenty of sunshine and low humidity. A disturbance arrives Thursday-Friday with the threat of rain.
Invest AL97 passed south of Jamaica last night and is heading for the Yucatán Peninsula, most likely reaching Belize by early Thursday morning. There is a high likelihood that it will be a tropical storm in the next 24 hours. It is no threat to the United States.
