Summer Weather Continues, Much Cooler by Weekend

Labor Day may mark the unofficial end of summer, but in terms of weather, summer continues well beyond the holiday.

After reaching 90 on Monday, temperatures will be a touch less hot on Tuesday as a cold front slides through New England. Morning lows will start the day in the 70s, but by afternoon most spots will be in the 80s. The towns that are near 90 still will be in far Southern New England. Just like temperatures, humidity will still be high, but not quite as oppressive as Labor Day.

The front will slip through without much fanfare, so just expect a spot shower with otherwise a mixture of sun and clouds.

Wednesday is similar. We’re still a touch less hot and humid than how we start the week. Highs will mainly be in the 80s with a mix of sun and clouds.

A warm front comes in late Wednesday, which may trigger another spot shower, but more importantly it allows temperatures to zoom back into the 90s on Thursday. Humidity will again be oppressive. The only areas that will be a touch more comfortable will be right along the Canadian border, thanks to yet another cold front moving in.

Expect more widespread showers and storms as that front slams into the hot and humid air.

While clouds and some showers likely linger into Friday, especially south, temperatures and humidity will drop dramatically. Highs will only be in the 70s to end the week. That continues right into the upcoming weekend.
