    Rounds of downpours and storms will continue Wednesday evening into the night across New England as muggy air remains locked in place. The biggest threat with these cells is the localized heavy rain that quickly causes areas of street flooding.

    [NATL] Judge Blocks Trump's Migrant Non-Port of Entry Asylum Ban

    An order from a federal judge overnight barred the Trump administration from blocking asylum requests from migrants who cross the U.S.-Mexico border illegally. This happens as a caravan criticized by President Donald Trump arrived in Tijuana, Mexico, across the border from San Diego.

    Thursday will bring a blend of sunshine and clouds, and more pop up downpours and storms in the still humid air mass. Highs will be in the 80s, so not quite as hot as past days.

    Late Thursday, expect some clearing to arrive in Western New England. 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 seasonable, with more 80s than anything else.
