THURSDAY: A mix of sun and clouds through the day with a few pop-up storms through the latter half of the day. Highs will top out in the lower 90s, but with the combination of humidity, it’ll feel closer to 100°. Tonight, expect partly clear skies with lows in the lower 70s. Another round of patchy fog can’t be ruled out.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: The pattern will remain stagnant locally for the latter half of the week – with muggy air and summer-time heat, even as we head into the first weekend of Autumn. Expect highs around 90°, give or take a degree or two; overnights near 70° with a daily chance for widely scattered showers and storms.
NEXT WEEK: Don’t expect much in the way of change through the next several days, including into next week. Expect partly sunny skies with a chance for a few splash and dash showers and storms amid temperatures running close to the 90° mark.
TROPICS: The tropics remain active as well begin to move through the back half of the Atlantic hurricane season; Tropical Storm Jose continues to bring impacts of rain, wind and surf for New England through mid-week – Hurricane Maria continues northward toward the Turks and Caicos. In the extended range, we’ll be watching the interaction between Jose and Maria by next week and how it may impact potential impacts along the eastern seaboard.
