Heat Thursday, Humidity Friday



    Weather Forecast: Hot, Hot, Hot

    Today (Thursday): Hot, not too humid. Highs near 90. Overnight Thursday Night: Some clouds late. Lows in the 60s. Friday: Hot, breezy, humid, scattered storms north, evening storm south. Highs in the 90s, 80s north. (Published Thursday, July 21, 2016)

    The heat builds across New England Thursday, but humidity will wait until Friday.

    The limited moisture today also means no chance of thunderstorms in New England for now, though building humidity Friday will increase the chance of unsettled weather, with periodic showers and thunder in Northern New England and an increasing chance of evening thunder south after a possible morning shower here and there.

    After some scattered Friday night storms that could pose a risk from damaging wind and lightning, Saturday brings more heat, more humidity, and chance of evening thunder with highs into the 90s for nearly everyone in New England, marking a heat wave for those who rose above 90 Thursday and Friday.

    Right now, chances are good we see very few storms Sunday, with slightly less humidity and slightly cooler temperatures – though some will still exceed 90 degrees. Monday brings one more day of temperatures in the 90s with afternoon thunder starting a very gradual trend toward slightly cooler temperatures by the middle and end of next week in the exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
