Weather Now: More Clouds, Higher Humidity, Passing Shower Today

Weather Now

After a beautiful Monday, we have some noticeable changes today:

  • The muggy air has returned,
  • Clouds are pushing in,
  • There’s a risk for a few showers

We’re keeping an eye on a storm system passing off-shore. It will bring extra clouds, and the risk of passing light showers this afternoon. The highest risk of showers will be over Cape Cod and the islands. Most spots will end up with less than 0.10″ of rain, and the majority of the day is dry.

At the same time, a warm front lifting through will allow a few thunderstorms to develop in western New England. Most of those are expected to fizzle out before reaching RI.

Pop-up showers and t’storms are possible on Wednesday and Thursday in a warm and more humid air mass. Any storms that develop will be hit-or-miss, but could contain heavy rain, strong wind gusts and lightning.

The cold front will push off-shore Thursday night, with comfortable humidity and dry skies returning for Friday and the weekend.
