Humidity Returning Later This Week, Thunder Chance Possible
Get ready for another pleasant afternoon as we face another day of sunshine and comfortable humidity. Tuesday will make three days in a row we have warm and dry weather, along with plenty of sunshine.
And we'll include our south coast, where there were clouds on Monday on the north side of that flooding storm in Washington D.C. That system has since departed to the east.
High pressure from Canada is in control. Although the sky may be mostly sunny, there is a haze from smoke due to fires burning in Ontario.
Light wind will become locally onshore, with high temperature in the 80s to near 90 degrees away from the beach. Temps are more like low 80s along the shore.
Little change will happen Tuesday night. A big, bright moon and a few clouds may show up, low temperature in the 50s and 60s once again.
There’s a weak front backing south in Maine that may have thicker clouds with just a chance of a shower or thunderstorm Wednesday. High temperatures will be close to 90 degrees inland and cooler at the coast with a sea breeze again. Humidity will be climbing a bit.
Ocean fog may develop Wednesday night along with low clouds that will be here Thursday morning. Thursday looks like there will be high humidity with a pretty good chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon or evening. High temperature in the 80s to near 90 degrees.
The next front from Canada is right over us on Friday with showers and thunderstorms likely, humid with high temperature in the 80s. Less humid air and sunshine is likely to return for the weekend.
Highs on Saturday and Sunday still in the 80s, with lower humidity. There’s a weak second front from Canada that may trigger a few showers or thunderstorms for the Canadian border late Saturday and Sunday.
In other weather news, we are watching the potential for a low pressure system strengthening in the Gulf of Mexico that could become tropical storm Barry approaching the Louisiana or Texas coast by late in the week with potential for major flooding, but not a threat to New England.
