Increasing warmth and humidity this week

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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.

This week will start out warm, dry and sunny, with low humidity. However, temperatures and the humidity will be on the rise for the middle and end of the week with highs reaching near 90.

Our best chance for storms will Thursday through Saturday as cold front will slow down and stall to our west. An upper level trough will set up across the Great Lakes that will induce a couple of ripples of low pressure to roll along the front. Since the front will line up along the eastern side of the trough and run parallel to the upper level winds from the SW, it will be very slow to move across New England.  So again, expect several days of heat and humidity with those instability storms for the end of the week and continuing into at least the first part of next weekend.
