    Flash Flood Warning in Southern Region

    Friday: Morning downpours, then some partial afternoon clearing with just a spot storm. Highs in the 80s, muggy. Friday Night: Clearing, less humid. Lows in the 60s. Saturday: Sunny and less humid. Highs in the 80s. (Published Friday, July 12, 2019)

    A staggering 5.7 inches of rain fell in Plymouth early Friday morning as drenching downpours soaked the South Shore. Flooding was reported there, as well as in nearby Kingston and New Bedford.

    More than 6 inches of rain also fell in parts of Grafton County, New Hampshire overnight, leading to many road washouts and even some evacuations.

    With the worst of the rain now done, some partial sunshine will develop for the rest of the day. Highs will be in the 80s and it stays very muggy. Expect a few more pop-up showers and downpours, even a thunderstorm, to develop mid-to-late afternoon as a cold front moves through. Behind that, front skies will clear Friday night, the rain will end and humidity will drop.

    We’ll wake up with lots of sunshine and temperatures in the 60s Saturday morning before we spike into the 80s and even near 90 by the afternoon. Humidity will be much more comfortable than what we had late this week.

    Sunday is another beauty in southern New England, with more sun and highs in the 80s. Humidity will be low. In northern New England, expect a few more clouds and even a few spotty downpours or storms.

    Much of next week through Wednesday will be warm and sunny.

    Late in the week, humidity will climb again and we’ll watch for another risk of heavy rain as the remnants of Tropical Storm Barry move closer.
