Another great day ahead, turning more humid Friday

Watching for storms on Saturday

If you loved the weather in the afternoon yesterday, today looks to be even better. Temperatures will climb even higher then yesterday reaching into mid 80s inland and hovering in the upper 70s and low 80s at the beaches. A light northwest breeze keeps humidity levels manageable today but that changes tonight. Tonight we stay clear as temperatures will fall into the low 60s but humidity levels begin to rise.

Tomorrow we have another chance at our first 90° day of the year which would be the first since August 27th, 2021 at T.F. Green Airport. A south/southwest breeze will bring an abundance of heat and humidity with a forecasted high temperature of 90° with dew points reaching 70° in some spots tomorrow. Expect temperatures to be a bit cooler at the beaches with the breeze coming in off the water. Overnight Friday clouds will roll into the area. We should be OK for evening fireworks but late Friday night, the chance of scattered showers moves into the area.

Saturday morning starts cloudy with some scattered showers. Highs will end up hovering around 80°. As the cold front approaches in the mid afternoon, the chance of severe thunderstorms increases. Gusty winds, hail, lightning, downpours and street flooding are all a possibility.  Overnight clouds continue with lows in the mid 60s.

Sunday morning the cold front finally passes, leaving a chance of some lingering AM showers. Good news is that Sunday afternoon brightens up and temperatures will reach into the mid 80s inland and near 80° at the coastline.

As of now, Fourth of July looks to be a fantastic day for cookouts, parades and going to the beach. Temperatures will hit the mid 80s inland with comfortable dew points all around.
