    Sunday: Mostly sunny and less humid, high in the 80s. A few showers in the northern mountains, high in the 70s. (Published Saturday, Aug. 6, 2016)

    An approaching cold front will trigger a batch of scattered showers, downpours, and thunderstorms during the day on Saturday. In any one city or town, the vast majority of the day will be dry, but we’re all at risk of some passing wet weather. It will be muggy as well, with gusty winds in Southeastern New England.

    During the morning hours the wet weather will generally be in the form of light, isolated showers. The best chance of getting wet during the morning will be north of Boston.

    During the afternoon, specifically from 1-7 PM, storms will enter the mix. The thunderstorms will be most widespread in Eastern Maine and South of the Massachusetts Turnpike.

    For the immediate Boston area, the hours between 2 and 5 PM will present the highest odds of a storm. The South Coast, Cape Cod, and the Islands will be most at risk of storms after that point as the front sags south.

    Any storms that develop will contain heavy rain, frequent lightning, and the could produce isolated wind damage.

    It will be less humid and brighter on Sunday, with just a pop up shower in Northern New England.
