Severe Thunderstorm Watch in effect for inland Rhode Island and Bristol County, MA until 8pm. This means that severe storms are possible…atmospheric conditions are favorable.
Today will be quite humid with highs in the mid to upper 80s inland, upper 70s at the south coast. Breezes will be out of the southwest at 10-20 mph. While most of the day will be rain-free, there will be a chance of strong thunderstorm this afternoon through early this evening. Outdoor plans are a go but stay “weather aware” as you may need to briefly seek shelter if these strong storms materialize.
The storms have the potential for torrential downpours and damaging wind gusts.
TONIGHT INTO SUNDAY
Showers will clear out this evening and humidity will drop overnight into Sunday. Highs will be quite a bit cooler on Sunday reaching the upper 60s to around 70. There will be a chance of a few showers in the afternoon, but most of the day will be rain-free.
