The heavy rains of Wednesday night are mostly done and will be ending soon from Cape Cod to Maine as Thursday turns into a beautiful day with lower humidity and high temperature in the 80s.
It’s going to be a nice day once it dries out from Wednesday night’s excessive rainfall. Some locations picked up more than 3 inches of rain with localized flooding.

A warm front approaches from the west Sunday with increasing clouds and a chance of a few showers. High temperature Sunday in the 70s, perhaps 60s if gets a little bit more wet than anticipated. Labor Day Monday doesn’t change much with a lot of clouds and a few showers and a high temperature close to 70 degrees.
Hurricane Dorian continues its track north of the Caribbean, away from land for Thursday and Friday, and strengthening as it is expected to take a turn to the west and perhaps be off the Florida coast as a major hurricane later this weekend.
