A mix of sunshine and clouds Wednesday morning along with a rapid warm up. Temperatures by late morning already in the 80s

TOWN BY TOWN FORECAST WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON/EVENING: Partly sunny skies, breezy and much warmer, more humid. Temperatures will range from the 70s along the coast to the 80s inland. While a vast majority of the afternoon looks warm and dry, there’s a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms after 6pm… A higher chance for showers and thunder after sunset


Ahead of a cold front, summer warmth will make a return for Wednesday Thursday with highs in the 80s inland. The humidity will also be on the rise too.


That front is expected scattered showers and thunderstorms, some potentially strong for interior “western” Southern New England (areas shaded in yellow on map below) by late afternoon Wednesday.

The showers and thunderstorms will move into Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts after 6PM and will gradually weaken as they approach the coast Wednesday night. There is a “marginal chance” for some storms to bring brief downpours, dangerous lightning, gusty winds and hail for areas in far northwest Rhode Island and northeastern Connecticut. Bottom line: Highest risk are areas shaded in yellow well to our west….stay tuned for updates.


Overall the holiday weekend looks much cooler, especially Saturday and Sunday. Rain from Friday night will extend into Saturday morning. Brighter and milder weather on Memorial Day Monday.
