Forecast: More Humidity And Clouds Today

Clouds will once again be the main weather feature in our forecast today, and this will keep temperatures from rising too high in spite of very humid conditions.

We are still loosely under the influence of what was Hermine and that spinning system seems like it just won’t quit.

The good news about the weather system — and there hasn’t been much — is that it did help keep the 90-degree heat away from southern New England most of this week. If the storm hadn’t turned up, we likely would have seen 90 degrees three or four days this week. Now, we may reach near that mark tomorrow — but that should be it.

You could see a shower today, but most of the time it’s dry. Sunshine returns for Friday with warm and humid air. Remind your student who may be practicing a sport this afternoon, but especially Friday, to stay hydrated.

The weekend is looking warm with a drier air mass for Sunday. A cold front will pass off the coast sometime Sunday and behind it a much more comfortable air mass will arrive. There is a chance of a few showers with the front, the timing of them still needs to be nailed down. Sunday won’t be a washout by any means, with most of the day being dry regardless of when showers do occur.

Much of next week looks seasonably warm to warmer than average, and the humidity will return at least for a day or possibly two.

Today: Clouds and a few sunny breaks. Muggy with a shower possible. Highs near 80.

Tonight: Warm and muggy with a shower or thunderstorm possible. Low around 70.

Friday: Mostly sunny, very warm and humid. Highs in the mid to upper 80s.

Saturday: Sunny and warm. Less humid. Highs 82-87.

Sunday: Partly sunny and warm, may shower, back to being humid. Highs in the lower to middle 80s.

Monday: Mostly sunny and pleasant. Highs 74-78.
