    (Published Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2018)

    The hot and humid weather continues Wednesday while the heat advisory has been extended for Southern New England through the evening. Temperatures will largely be in the 80s, but with the humidity factored in, it will feel like the 90s in many locations.

    A passing front will also trigger afternoon thunderstorms, and with so much available moisture to draw on, heavy rain and localized flash flooding is possible this afternoon and evening.

    Isolated severe storms are possible mainly through Western New England, with damaging wind gusts being the primary threat.

    Thursday will be very similar, with lingering heat and humidity and scattered thunderstorms through the afternoon.

    A second disturbance moves through Friday, but this front will bring refreshing air from the Northwest, leaving us with lower humidity for the first time in days. Humidity stays lower Saturday but begins to rise again Sunday.

    The weekend will bring a chance of passing showers as well, but temperatures will be much more comfortable, in the lower 80s for most.
