    Scattered storms, muggy. Highs in the 70s to near 80.


    Saturday night: Clearing out. Lows in the 60s.

    (Published Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017)

    There's one more day with the tropical air mass that’s been spurring up the humidity, along with afternoon thunderstorms. We have a cold front that will slide through today, clashing with the humid air mass, and where they clash is where the storms will start to fire up.

    Some of these storms could be on the strong to severe side with the main impacts being damaging wind gusts, flash flooding, frequent lightning, and hail. We’ll see a couple lines of storms spreading from west to east thru the day. Storms have already prompted a Flood Advisory for parts of Connecticut, earlier this morning with the first line of downpours.

    Today will not be a washout, you just have to be weather aware for your outdoor plans and make sure to have indoor plans once that storms move into your area.

    By noon, the line of storms will stretch from northern New Hampshire, Vermont, and stretching into central Massachusetts, and Connecticut. By the middle afternoon, storms will continue to progress eastward with the heavy rain now impacting interior Maine, possibly clipping the New Hampshire sea coast, central to eastern Massachusetts and a few showers into Rhode Island.

    Between dinner time and 7 p.m., these storms will be around the Boston-area, which means the Red Sox game could get rain delayed. The line of storms are quick-moving so it does look like by 8 p.m., these should be off the coastline for southern New England.

    Northern New England, the line of storms could linger into Maine thru at least 9 to 10 p.m. Looks like the intensity of these storms will be the strongest into northern New England, and as far south as the southern New Hampshire-Massachusetts state line thru the afternoon and evening.

    The cold front clears the area overnight and allows for the refreshing, less humid air to return for the second half of the weekend. Tonight, temperatures slip into the upper 50s north, 60s south under partly to mostly cloudy skies.

    Sunday brings the return of sunshine along with highs near 80 as high pressure ushers in a quieter day.

    Take advantage of Sunday’s gorgeous weather before Monday brings another round of showers by the afternoon-evening.

    These showers will be more widespread as a low pressure system slides in and the high pressure moves closer to Bermuda. Showers continue into Tuesday before we track a drier Wednesday. Highs remain in the 70s for next work week.
