    Humidity will creep back in throughout the day. Much of the region will be dry, but we can’t rule out a shower or thunderstorm in northern New England.

    Temperatures will range from the mid-70s in northern New England to the mid-80s in central and southern New England. Wednesday will be hot and humid.

    Temperatures will surge into the low 90s and dew points will be in the mid-70s. Northern New England may be the only location that might stay fairly comfortable.

    Showers and thunderstorms will develop along a cold front. It’s too early to tell if severe weather is a possibility. Once the front passes, it will turn significantly more comfortable.

    Temperatures from Friday through Sunday will range from the 60s into the 70s. At this point, the weekend should stay mainly dry. Shower chances will increase next week.

    We are watching Tropical Storm Gordon and its remnants to see if we get some tropical downpours. The Atlantic Basin is also heating up. Florence is something we need to watch closely – most of the models take the storm out to see, but some do send it into the east coast. Stay tuned!
