FIRST ALERT: Torrential Downpours Anticipated in Southern New England

We're starting off our week with another warm and muggy day, but at least we won’t see the unforgiving heat we experienced over the last three days.

Showers and thunderstorms will roll in during the afternoon. Thunderstorms will tap into the tropical and produce some heavy downpours.

It’s possible that one or two storms could produce strong wind gusts. That potential will exist into Tuesday, as well. When all is said and done, 1-to-2-inches of rain is possible in central and southern New England. There will be a risk of some localized flash flooding.

On Wednesday, our weather will improve dramatically! The sun will return and temperatures will be comfortable around 80 degrees. Each day of the week will get gradually warmer and by the weekend, temperatures will be in the mid-80s.

Another push of heat is possible by the following week. It looks like it won’t be as extreme as this last round, but a few 90-degree temperatures are possible.

Stay tuned!
