Storms expected to return again Thursday

Posted: Updated:

A cold front is expected to push into the humid air the state has been experiencing and potentially produce more showers and thunderstorms.

"With the high humidity, heavy downpours formed during the afternoon. However, other parts of the state saw little to no rainfall," said Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest.

Dew points on Wednesday rose into the low to middle 70s, but as the afternoon progressed it dropped to the 60s.

Many parts of the state saw highs in the 80s on Wednesday as a cold front passed across the state during the afternoon.

DePrest said due to the passage of the cold front, the humidity will decrease slightly on Wednesday night.

"Temperatures overnight should fall to the mid 60’s, which paired with the slightly lower humidity should provide better sleeping conditions," DePrest said.

Any thunderstorms are expected to dissipate Wednesday evening and areas of low clouds and fog will form overnight.

Thursday could be unsettled.

The cold front will stall to the south of New England and a wave of low pressure will develop on the front.

Storms could roll through again on Thursday evening and overnight.

"At least the humidity will drop to more comfortable levels," Deprest said. "As usual, the temperature will be dictated on how much cloud cover we receive."

Conditions could improve by the time Friday rolls around.

Despite a chance for some early morning fog, the day is expected to be partly sunny with highs in the 80s.
