Clouds, rain to welcome beginning of August

Posted: Updated:

The end of July and beginning of August will be a little unsettled, weather-wise.

It was definitely the end of the heat wave, as temperatures didn't go past the low 80s on Sunday.

Most of the day was cloudy, and as the evening goes on, clouds will stick around and bring some showers to parts of the state.

"They should spread eastward across the state tonight as upper level energy moves into Southern New England from the west. Some showers will produce torrential downpours," said Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest.

Monday will likely bring more showers, and areas of fog are possible for the morning.

"A few thunderstorms are possible as well since the atmosphere will be a bit unstable," DePrest said, adding that temperatures will range between 77 and 83 degrees and the humidity will be moderate.

Showers are expected to linger into Tuesday, but drier air should clear the showers away, DePrest said.

"Temperatures should reach 80-85 degrees, which is still slightly cooler than normal. The normal high for the beginning of August is 85 degrees on the 1st then it drops to 84 degrees on the 2nd," DePrest said.

Temperatures are expected to rise again toward the middle and end of the week.
