    The remnant circulation of what was Hermine continues spinning south of New England, over the Atlantic waters, and this means we continue to see an onshore wind flow here at home.

    The result of the continued wind off the water will be a day that features humid air and scattered showers with embedded downpours here and there. That said, most of New England will see several dry hours today with breaks of sun allowing temperature to rise to about 80 degrees - slightly cooler at the coast.

    Expect any showers to diminish this evening as Hermine's storm circulation weakens even more, though some patchy coastal drizzle and fog will develop beneath abundant New England cloud cover overnight Wednesday night into early Thursday morning.

    As Hermine's skeletal remains are swept away by an increasing steering wind Thursday, sunshine will break out with a peak in humidity and temperatures rebounding into the 80s by afternoon. Though storms are not expected during the day Thursday, Thursday evening and night will see a disturbance arriving from the west with showers and thunder focused especially in Central and Northern New England an overnight shower south.

    Decreasing humidity but continued heat are expected on a storm-free Friday, ahead of comfortable Saturday air. The next chance of showers comes Saturday evening and night and may linger into Sunday morning before departing, but it's early to say just how much rain will fall.

    Next week brings some swings in high temperatures, but generally features cooling toward the end of the exclusive necn Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
