Showers, thunderstorms to make for a wet Monday

Posted: Updated:

Some of the state will see showers overnight, but Monday morning brings a better chance for showers and thunderstorms.

Meteorologist Mike Cameron said there could be heavy downpours during the afternoon, which could bring a half inch to an inch or more of rain to a few towns.

“The stalled front will linger as low pressure moves along it southeast of the New England coast,” Cameron said. “Remnants from Tropical Depression Julia may also get involved with the system and may work far enough northwest to enhance the intensity of rain in some of the afternoon showers and thunderstorms.”

There will be higher humidity in place on Monday, and temperatures will be close to 80 degrees, if not a bit higher.

Cameron said there will be towns on Monday that receive less rain, and towns that get between a half inch and an inch of rain.

Tuesday will be brighter and warmer with temperatures in the 80s.

A cold front should sweep across the state later in the day, but right now showers aren’t expected.

Wednesday is the last day of summer, and should be mostly sunny and breezy.

“It’ll be cooler too with highs in the upper 70s,” Cameron said. “A cold front will pass through during the very early part of the day, which will send in the breezier, drier, and cooler weather.”
