    Overnight storms brought heavy rains and gusty winds to areas of interior New England overnight, resulting in wind damage for some.

    These showers will continue to diminish today as a potent cold front slides offshore. Drier air streams in across the region, bringing much anticipated relief from the heat and humidity that has been in place for the past couple of days.

    Highs today max out in the mid 80s south and mid 70s north as humid air mass continues to retreat offshore. Sunny skies are on tap Thursday as surface high pressure system sets up nearby.

    A disturbance in the atmosphere may result in some spot showers. Highs crest into the upper 70s across the south and near 70 degrees across the north. Even cooler air streams into New England on Friday as high pressure spills into the region from the Great Lakes.

    Friday features continued sunny and dry weather with highs in the low 70s south and upper 60s north. Looking ahead to the weekend, dry trend continues with high pressure overhead.

    Temperatures will max out in the low to mid 70s into next week. More details are on your exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-Day Forecast on NBC Boston and necn.
