What to Know
- Today (Tuesday): Fair sky, chance isolated afternoon shower Eastern Massachusetts & Rhode Island. Highs in the 80s.
- Overnight Tuesday Night: Less humid, variable clouds. Lows in the 60s.
- Wednesday: Mostly sunny. Highs in the 80s.
While it won’t be quite as hot as Labor Day, Tuesday is still going to be much above average and sticky as a cold front slides through New England.
Morning lows will start the day in the 70s, but by afternoon, most spots will be in the 80s. The towns that are near 90 still will be in far Southern New England. Just like temperatures, humidity will still be high, but not quite as oppressive as Labor Day.

The front will slip through without much fanfare, so just expect a spot shower with otherwise a mixture of sun and clouds.
Wednesday is similar. We’re still a touch less hot and humid than how we start the week. Highs will mainly be in the 80s with a mix of sun and clouds.
A warm front comes in late Wednesday, which may trigger another spot shower, but more importantly, it allows temperatures to zoom back into the 90s on Thursday. Humidity will again be oppressive. The only areas that will be a touch more comfortable will be right along the Canadian border, thanks to yet another cold front moving in.
As that front slams into the hot and humid air, expect more widespread showers and storms.
While clouds and some showers likely linger into Friday, especially south, temperatures and humidity will drop dramatically. Highs will only be in the 70s to end the week. That continues right into the upcoming weekend.
