    Earlier story below:

    Strong to severe thunderstorms will continue to move through New England into the evening hours, bringing localized flash flooding and damaging winds. The storms will be most widespread north and west of Boston, with a better chance of avoiding the storms the farther south and east you go. It will be windy over the Cape and Islands though. 

    This batch of storms will fizzle out tonight, leaving us with very humid conditions. Lows will only drop into the 60s and 70s. Some fog will form near the coast. 

    On Saturday that fog will gradually burn off to a mixture of sun and clouds. Highs climb into the 80s with high humidity. Gusty winds will continue over the Cape and Islands. 

    Another round of storms will fire up during the afternoon, but the focus will again be north and west of Boston with a much lower risk of storms south and east. 

    A cold front moves through on Sunday, triggering and isolated shower or rumble of thunder but most of the day looks dry and bright. It will be a touch less humid, but highs will still be in the 80s to near 90. 

    Monday and Tuesday both look mainly dry, aside from an isolated sprinkle, with lower humidity and highs around 80. Overall quite nice for the holiday. 

    After that the next chance of widespread storms or rain arrives Thursday.
