Tuesday was another tropical day, with showers and humidity, and that will continue on Wednesday.

It'll be another uncomfortable night outdoors, as temperatures will stay in the 70s.

Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest said most of the night will be dry, but there could be a brief shower.

The risk for stronger storms is higher for Wednesday, prompting Channel 3 to issue an Early Warning Weather Day.

"A cold front will approach New England from the west. Therefore, the risk of showers and storms will be higher, especially during the afternoon and evening as deeper moisture returns to the state," DePrest said.

The high humidity will fuel torrential downpours that could lead to localized flash flooding during the day and well into Wednesday night.

Wednesday's storms could produce some gusty wind and thunderstorms. Isolated wind damage is possible in southern New England.

It'll be another day of tropical humidity, DePrest said, with dew points in the low and middle 70s, and highs in the lower 80s.

"The front may stall in or near Southern New England on Thursday and that means there will be more showers and thunderstorms," DePrest said.

Some showers could produce very heavy rainfall, and there will be a continued risk of localized flash flooding.

"Friday will be the hottest day of the week with partly sunny skies and highs around 90 degrees. A cold front will probably stir up a few scattered thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening," DePrest said.
