Weather Alert: One More Hot Day; Relief For the Weekend

Pinpoint Weather Alerts

A warm and humid night is ahead for tonight. We’ll stay mainly dry though with no showers or storms in the forecast. Temperatures will continue to fall through the 70s overnight. We’ll have one more hot day for Friday with highs in the upper 80s and low 90s in spots.

Thursday marked our third consecutive day of 90 degrees or higher making for yet another official heat wave across southern New England. Tuesday and Wednesday both reached 90 degrees with the hottest day coming on Thursday.

Friday could potentially make it four consecutive days of 90 degrees as forecasted highs are right around 90 degrees.

We end the workweek tracking one last very hot and humid day so take it easy once again by taking extra breaks in the shade or AC, drinking more water, and wearing loose-fitting, lightweight clothing. Don’t forget to check on the elderly and pets, too.

Look for inland highs in the upper 80s and low 90s. Dew points will be near 70 with light southwest winds 5-10 mph. The heat index will once again be back up into the 90s.

A cold front will be sitting just to the north of us and could spark an isolated thunderstorm as it slowly swings through the late day into the evening tomorrow.

Behind the front, look for the humidity to drop Friday night.

AT THE BEACH: Another great summer day at the shore. Sunny, warm, and mostly dry.

THIS WEEKEND: Much Cooler

We’ll wake up to a refreshing feel on Saturday morning. The humidity and temperatures will be much cooler, with partly to mostly cloudy skies. While a light shower is possible, most of the day looks dry. Highs will stay in the 70s. Sunday looks similar, though the humidity will begin to rise in the afternoon and evening. The day looks mainly dry, despite the chance for a light shower or two.
