Thursday Night Weather: Humid Tonight, Possible Storms Tomorrow

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Not a lot going on to start off the night.  The best moisture and instability remain west of Connecticut…for now.  But we are certainly not out of the woods. Showers will become more numerous towards daybreak.

Keep an umbrella nearby Friday with heavy rain at times with embedded thunderstorms. Downpours can happen at any time of the day.  Some of the storms could be strong and will need to be monitored. Although there is low instability in the atmosphere, the wind shear (wind direction turning with height) is just right. This means there is a possibility for low topped supercells IF we can get some storms to develop.

Very humid, almost tropical air remains in place through tonight. A cold front Friday night will help wash the moisture out of the air.  Early morning clouds Saturday will break for sun with drier comfy air streaming in. Both days this weekend look perfect and most of next week looks dry and sunny.

Tonight: Mainly dry through midnight, showers and storms becoming more numerous towards daybreak. Low: Near 70

Tomorrow: Very humid with periodic downpours and embedded thunderstorms. Some storms could be strong to severe. High: Near 80

Saturday: Early clouds break for sunshine. Turning less humid and more comfortable as the day progresses. A bit warmer than recent days. High: Mid 80s

Sunday: Sunny and dry with low humidity. Fantastic late summer weekend! High: Low 80s

Monday: Sunny skies for most of the day. Clouds increasing late and at night. High: Low to mid 80s

Tuesday: Increasing clouds with showers developing, mainly in the afternoon. Low to mid 80s
