    We still can’t shake the humidity around New England Tuesday, with highs again surging into the 80s by afternoon. Skies will feature a mixture of sun and clouds with some pop-up showers, downpours, and thunderstorms, especially during the afternoon.

    Any storms and downpours that do fire up will again bring locally heavy rain and the risk of some street flooding.

    The National Weather Service issued the warning just after 9 a.m. and said it will remain in effect through 9:45 a.m. Just before 9 a.m., severe thunderstorms were located near Cape Cod Bay, moving east at a speed of 25 mph.

    Expect some clearing to arrive in Western New England in the late day. That will then continue to slide east, bringing more pleasant weather for week’s end.

    Friday will feature plenty of sunshine, lower humidity, and highs in the 80s.

    The weekend looks best along and north of the Massachusetts Turnpike for now. That means the most sun is likely over the mountains of Northern New England. Clouds will be more numerous, with a better chance of scattered showers or a storm, south of there. Expect highs in the 70s and 80s. Even in far Southern New England though, neither day will be a total washout.

    Next week also looks more reasonable, with more 80s than anything else.
