The next few days will run the gamut of September weather
Expect all kinds of weather over the next few days. Monday will be cool and cloudy; Tuesday will be rainy; and then Wednesday will be hot and humid, with a chance for thunderstorms.
“Typical large temperature swings for late [September] - touch of fall today then summer-like weather Wednesday with highs near 80,” forecasters tweeted.
The National Weather Service said the work week will start out partly sunny Monday morning and then become mostly cloudy, but it will remain dry and cool, with highs in the upper 50s. The northeast winds will be blowing 15 to 20 miles an hour, with gusts up to 30 miles an hour, forecasters said.
Forecasters said Monday night will be mostly cloudy and cool, as temperatures drop into the 40s across much of the region.
An approaching warm front will bring plenty of rain Tuesday, and the rain could be heavy at times in the afternoon and evening.
The rain will continue into Tuesday night, and there could be patchy fog and wind gusts of up to 30 miles an hour. It’s also expected to become humid and warmer, with lows in the mid 60s, forecasters said.
Summer-like weather will make a comeback mid-week, as Wednesday will be muggy and noticeably warmer, with mostly cloudy skies and a chance of showers and thunderstorms. The highs will be around 80, forecasters said.
The weather service issued a hazardous weather outlook for Rhode Island, northern Connecticut, and all of Massachusetts east of Berkshire County due to “a low risk for a few strong to severe thunderstorms late Wednesday afternoon and evening...mainly across interior southern New England.”
The main concern would be damaging wind gusts, the weather service said.
