    Story Highlights

    Wednesday - Thursday 

    STORMS WITH DOWNPOURS

    The Wednesday morning commute will be dry, warm and muggy.  Scattered downpours and thunderstorms will develop across southern New England during the afternoon as a cold front sinks south through the region. Some of these could reach severe limits. Be sure to download the free Boston 25 Weather app so you will get alerts as needed. The front will be just to our south Thursday morning as tropical moisture and what's left of Barry move through. There will be a slow drying trend from north to south Thursday afternoon to evening.  Some localized flooding is possible due to tropical downpours at times (fueled by Barry's remnants).

     

    WEEKEND HEAT WAVE

    The forecast looks generally dry Friday through the weekend.  It will be HOT with highs in the 90s, leading to the potential for a HEAT WAVE with 3 days of 90+ heat in the forecast.  Humidity will continue to run high, so heat indices will top out in the triple digits at times, especially Saturday! Saturday will bring the highest temperatures to the region, challenging record highs and possibly resulting in a few 100-degree readings.
