Thunderstorms Threaten New England Late Thursday

    Thursday: Mix of sun and clouds, isolated storm north and west. Muggy and breezy. Highs in the 80s. Thursday Night: Downpours return. Lows in the 60s to near 70. Friday: Mostly cloudy, downpours and storms, particularly early. Very humid. Highs in the 80s. (Published Thursday, July 11, 2019)

    Muggy air is surging back into New England Thursday on a gusty south wind, setting the stage for occasional downpours and storms to end the week.

    Morning fog will burn off to a mixture of sun and clouds in parts of southeastern Massachusetts, but for areas north and west of Boston we’ll see scattered showers, downpours and even some thunderstorms Thursday. This will not at all be a washout, but when it rains, it will come down heavily because there is so much moisture in the air.

    Temperatures will mainly be in the 80s.

    We’ll get a brief break between this first round of downpours and a second round that comes in overnight into Friday morning.

    Like Thursday, some of this rain will be heavy. Expect some pockets of street flooding during the Friday morning commute as the downpours and storms come in. Humidity stays high all day as the pop up downpours continue to come through at random, with highs in the 80s.

    We’ll dry out and the sky will clear just in time for Friday night plans. We’ll then enjoy a mostly sunny weekend with lower humidity and highs in the 80s to near 90.

    There is a slight chance of a downpour or storm in the mountains on Sunday.

    Early next week also looks warm, bright, and comfortable in terms of humidity.

    By week’s end we’ll watch for some more downpours to return. Those would be associated with the remnants of Barry, which will bring drenching rains to the Gulf states this weekend.
