The weather looks great through this evening, but the humidity will be on the rise through the night and especially Wednesday.
A warm front in New York and Pennsylvania will move into New England tonight, bringing with it much more humid air. You’ll notice the extra mugginess around tonight. Also take note of the remnants of what was once Hurricane Barry. That moisture will interact with a cold front currently moving through the Great Lakes. That front and moisture from Barry arrives in our area later Wednesday afternoon/evening and extending into Thursday.
As the front gets closer Wednesday afternoon-evening, we’ll have a better chance of heavy downpours and some thunder. Some storms may be strong. That will continue through Wednesday night into Thursday.
Showers, downpours and thunder are likely through Thursday. In general, 1-2″ of rain is expected. Localized brief street flooding is possible in some downpours.
Friday will be drier, but that’s the start of a heat wave (3 straight days of 90°+ heat). It’ll be quite humid too, with feel-like temperatures around 105°!!! It’ll be a good weekend for the pool, beach, mall or movies….anywhere where you can stay cool.
HEAT WAVE STARTS FRIDAY AND LAST THRU THE WEEKEND.
HEAT INDEX SATURDAY
