Weekend Weather: Another Warm And Muggy Couple Days Before A Beautiful Sunday

Another warm and muggy night means it's a warm and humid day ahead.

Temperatures will be similar to yesterday, reaching well into the 70s and lower 80s. There will be some sunshine, but a lot of clouds as well. The thickest clouds will be along the south coast. Humidity levels will be similar everywhere.

A slow-moving frontal system is in store for Saturday. Because this frontal system is moving at a snail's pace it will keep clouds and humidity around all day. Temperatures will reach into the low and even mid-80s, and there could be a shower or thunderstorm.

Sunday is a perfect day. It will be sunny and pleasant, with highs in the lower 70s.

Rainfall continues to be nearly nonexistent, and if we miss the showers Saturday it doesn't look like we'll see any significant rain for the foreseeable future.

Abnormally dry conditions are starting to show up in portions of Maine and New Hampshire. If the current pattern continues much of New England will end up abnormally dry — and eventually slip into a drought. We will have to wait and see, but right now June is looking hot and dry, so prepare yourself.
