Hot and humid Thursday; chance for showers and storms

This heat and humidity continues for one more day! While it's still be hot and humid out there, a cold front moving through in the afternoon will keep temperatures a bit lower (near 90 degrees instead of mid-upper 90s). There is a chance for an isolated shower or storm in the afternoon but most locations stay dry.  This is great news for the first UCONN home game of the season tonight (game time is 7 PM)!

After that, the heat and humidity breaks Friday and Saturday. But with the cold front lingering nearby, clouds and showers will linger too. It doesn't look like a washout, but scattered areas of rain may be present.

Clouds will persist into the start of the holiday weekend with an onshore flow. Saturday will be mostly cloudy with the chance for a passing shower. Sunday looks a little brighter and warmer though as more humid air begins to stream in.

Then temperatures HEAT UP again just in time for Labor Day. In fact it looks like yet another heat wave is on the way for next week!
