A very active weather pattern will send a few more t-storms at Southern New England on Tuesday afternoon. The action comes ahead of a cold front that will temporarily bring much more comfortable weather on Wednesday. It looks like a delightfully dry day with highs in the upper 70s and dew points in the 40s – very comfy!
The forecast is tricky for Thursday as warm/muggy air tries to return. The warm front will likely have some showers/storms along it, and it’s unclear how quickly the front will move north. Scattered showers and t-storms are possible over CT, RI and SE MA, but more likely further north. It could be an active day with a damp/showery start then dry weather followed by an afternoon t-storm.
Friday into Saturday looks fairly quiet and seasonable before what’s left of Hurricane Laura gets caught in the jet stream and heads for Southern New England. The center will likely pass south of New England, but some showers are likely mid-weekend. In a worst-case scenario, it could still be carrying some wind with the rain. There’s also a low chance of severe weather depending on the exact track. Right now, that type of active weather seems more likely in the Mid-Atlantic than New England.
Speaking of the tropics, it’s possible that Nana (yes, Nana) will form next week in the Atlantic Ocean. Conditions are favorable for a storm to intensify in the Atlantic in early September, and anything that develops needs to be watched closely. If the storm were to get anywhere near the United States, it looks like it would be near the Labor Day weekend – a long way down the road, and rather unlikely, but not impossible.
