    Our extreme heat will be done... for now.

    It will be closer to normal for most of us. We won’t see much relief to the humidity until Friday, at least.

    We don’t see as much sunshine Wednesday. There could be a couple rounds of showers and downpours during the day. This activity will be widely hit or miss.

    Friday and Saturday look dry and quite nice. There will be much less humidity. Shower and thunderstorm chances will increase once we get to Sunday. At this point, it doesn’t look like we will see any severe thunderstorms.

    Next week we will see typical New England summer weather. Moderate humidity, warm with afternoon showers and thunderstorms. It’s too early to tell if there will be a severe weather potential.
