August 21 Update

The rain threat ends by early Wednesday evening and a nice stretch of weather is ahead for the end of the workweek into the weekend. Very warm to hot weather returns to Southern New England, with a decent chance of more 90°+ heat for at least a couple of days in the early to middle part of next week. It has been a wet month of August so far, but the pattern favors mainly dry weather in the next two weeks. The tropics will likely stay fairly quiet, especially considering we are inching towards the climatological height of the hurricane season in early September.

Expect sunshine and normal to seasonably cool weather Thursday and Friday. It will be a few degrees cooler than normal on Thursday, but still plenty nice! Expect highs in the mid to upper 70s with mostly sunny skies. Friday’s high temperature will be in the upper 70s to low 80s – just about normal for late August. Humidity should stay low for the next couple of days. You can probably give the A/C a break with lows in the mid 50s to low 60s Friday and Saturday morning.

Clouds will increase a bit on Saturday ahead of warmer weather that moves in late in the weekend into early next week. The temperature may take a step back into the 70s on Saturday with more clouds likely. It will be a dry day. Sunday looks like another dry day with partly cloudy skies and temps reaching the upper 70s to mid 80s depending on how much sunshine breaks through the clouds.

The warmest weather in the next 10 days arrives Monday and sticks around through at least Thursday. Expect highs in the mid 80s coast to low-mid 90s inland. Tuesday and Wednesday may be the hottest days, with highs close to 95° possible inland. It will also be muggy with lows in the 70s likely in the middle of next week. Summer ain’t done yet!
