September 9 – Mainly dry this week

Relatively quiet weather continues for a couple more days in Southern New England. Tuesday looks a lot like Monday with a blend of clouds and sunshine. Highs will be in the low to mid 70s – just about normal for mid-September. In fact, the last two days in Providence have been as close to normal as you’ll get with 58° and 57° lows followed by 77° highs.

It gets warmer and more humid on Wednesday. It looks mainly dry, but a stray shower cannot be ruled out. The dew point will climb into the 60s, and the high temperature will be in 80s inland and 70s at the coast. It will feel like August more than mid-September.

Scattered thunderstorms are possible on Thursday as a front approaches. It’s not a case where everyone will get rain, but some downpours are possible for those that do get hit. It will still be muggy Thursday morning, but clouds will prevent the temperature from reaching the 80s. Look for highs in the 70s.

Cool air arrives briefly on Friday

A cool shot arrives Thursday night into Friday. Expect much less humid weather with lows in the 50s and highs in the 60s. It will not take very long for an area of high pressure to slide by and relatively warm weather will try to make it back into New England by the end of the weekend. Scattered showers are possible on Saturday with highs in the 70s. The early outlook for Sunday is for dry skies and highs not far from 80.

Normal highs are in the mid 70s next week, and there’s a good chance it will be warmer than that. The low temperature will also be several degrees above normal. It may not be 90° heat, but the last few days of summer will not feel too much at all like fall is around the corner.

There are no tropical threats for New England in at least the next 10 days. A couple of disturbances in the Atlantic could become tropical systems and impact the Caribbean Islands. It’s unlikely a named storm would reach the Caribbean before this weekend.
