    Heat Advisory Issued for Some Areas

    Today: Hot and humid. An afternoon t’storm. Highs in the low 90s. Tonight: An early shower. Mostly cloudy. Lows in the mid 70s. Tomorrow: Warm and muggy. A scattered shower or t’storm. Highs in the upper 80s. (Published Monday, Aug. 19, 2019)

    It’s another foggy start around parts of New England, with very muggy air in place. That fog will burn off later Monday, allowing sunshine to develop.

    An approaching cold front will then trigger a line of downpours and storms late in the day. Those storms will move from west to east as highs hit 90 in many spots. Combined with continued high humidity, it will feel like it’s close to 100 at times.

    Tuesday will be mostly dry, with a mix of sun and clouds, as the front pulls to our south. It will still be hot and humid though, with highs in the 80s to near 90.

    Warm and muggy air lingers into Wednesday and Thursday, and both days will be unsettled again. That means more occasional downpours and storms.

    A new air mass finally arrives for Friday and next weekend, so expect more sun, cooler air, and lower humidity by then.
