    After a couple of days with lower humidity, we will have the air gradually become a bit more sticky on Tuesday, and then right back with a full on tropical feel Wednesday.

    Waves of low pressure tracking off to our south bring some showers or a bit of rain to the south coast overnight, otherwise mostly cloudy with patchy fog, low temperature in the 60s to near 70°.

    Sunshine should burn through the clouds for a fairly nice Tuesday, high temperature in the 70s at the beach, 80s inland, with just a slight chance of a shower or brief thunderstorm, wind is light and variable. A more significant warm front crosses New England Wednesday, with heavy clouds and tropical downpours, we may have some strong to severe thunderstorms as well.

    There may be some sunny breaks, but for the most part it's a damp day, with temperature close to 80°.

    The dewpoint will warm to the 70s, some of the downpours may result in localized flash flooding, and storms may cause wind damage.

    The front responsible for our Wednesday rain stalls and weakens over New England the second half of the week into the weekend. We end up with a very similar pattern to last week, where we have fog at night, burning off to sun and clouds with very stick air, with a chance of heavy downpours and thunderstorms each afternoon.

    The temperature will warm close to 90° by the weekend and early next week.
