Today's Weather: Storms Are Likely To Rain On Your Wednesday

We got a bit of a break in the humidity yesterday, but it's coming back quickly this morning and will be with us through tomorrow. There are two areas of showers we're going to have to contend with for today.

The first set of showers this morning is associated with the humid air moving into the region. These showers will not last long but if you get one, there could be a few downpours and the rumble of thunder.

Exactly how much rain falls early in the day and how quickly the clouds clear will determine what happens this afternoon. If we get enough sunshine, it will destabilize the atmosphere and some of the showers and storms could end up being severe — especially in Boston and north of the city. This is where the showers will be most prevalent.

You're really notice the humidity but the clouds will help keep temperatures from reaching 90, so it will remain in the 80s.

Tomorrow continues with plenty of humidity, and there might be an afternoon shower or storm, but it's much less likely than today. Thursday is going to be very warm — around 85 to 90 degrees — and with the humidity, it's just another uncomfortable day.

Finally, a cold front will push off shore Thursday night and early Friday, ushering in much drier air for the weekend. Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be stunning, with plenty of low humidity and temperatures in the 70s to near 80.

The nice weather should continue to start next week.
