    Have you had your fill yet?

    Well, the end of the searing heat may be near. A combination of a cooler airmass, a wind off the water and yes, even rain will conspire to take down the 90s and bring back some semblance of normalcy in New England.

    But not before the Heat Miser graces us with his presence again tomorrow. Sunny skies will bake us into low and mid 90s in Southern New England, with upper 80s to the north. As a cool front tiptoes into the North Country in the afternoon, we may find a few storms firing. There doesn't seem to be much of a threat for severe weather, but it's possible some could get out of hand. Keep your eyes peeled.

    Low pressure currently in Memphis will crawl along that front Thursday night and make a pass at New England Friday. Our hope is that we'll be right in the sweet spot and get soaked. In reality, we know we're tracking a wobbly, compact weather system, and a small jog south would leave us wanting. With a swath of 1-3" of water in play, stakes are high. We just wish we could guarantee it. Best chances remain in Southern Connecticut and Southeastern Massachusetts for at least 1" of rain.

    We'll have our buckets ready and our radars on standby.
