Saturday be a very pleasant day with temperatures ranging from the upper 70s south to the low 80s north. Dew points will be in the upper 50s along northern regions, with low 60s elsewhere. Some clouds will push into the state throughout the day, with the most cloud cover staying to the central and southern portions of the state. There is also a chance for an isolated shower or thunderstorm along central and Downeast areas.
Overnight, temperatures will be in the low 60s across the southern half of the state with the northern half seeing mainly upper 50s. There's even a chance that some areas northwest drop into the low 50s, almost feeling like a cool fall night. Cloud cover should dissipate a bit overnight, leaving mostly clear to partly cloudy skies.
Sunday will be a bit warmer with temperatures reaching into the mid 80s for most of the state. Temperatures in the low 80s will be confined to to northwestern and mountainous regions. A southwest breeze along the coast will keep the immediate coast confined to the mid and upper 70s. Humidity levels will stay similar, with dew points remaining in the upper 50s and low 60s. Skies will be a bit cloudier than Saturday, with the chance for some scattered showers and storms across northern and mountainous portions of the state.
The chance for some scattered showers will linger into Sunday night, with temperatures falling into the low to mid 60s across most of the state.
Heat and humidity climb through the middle of the week
It's going to be a fairly hot week, with temperatures in the upper 80s for most of the state. Monday will see mainly mid/upper 80s with the northern and coastal regions staying confined to low 80s. On Tuesday however, central and southwestern regions could reach the 90s! The cold front that moves through on Tuesday won't offer much help, as temperatures could continue to be in the upper 80s and 90s through late next week.
It will also be very humid this week, with dew points climbing into the upper 60s Monday and into the low 70s by Tuesday. Remember that high heat and humidity can be a dangerous mix, so be sure to stay hydrated and limit your time outdoors. Don't forget to check on any elderly friends/family that may need a cool place to stay!
A cold front will approach the region Monday, bringing the chance for scattered showers and storms ahead of it. The cold front will cross the region later in the day on Tuesday and into the overnight hours, so expect the chance for showers and thunderstorms as it crosses the state. Showers and storms may linger into Wednesday, depending on the timing of the front.
Remember your heat safety!
It's always important to be able to recognize the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke, and to know how to take the appropriate precautions to prevent either from happening. Like I mentioned above, try to limit outdoor exposure and stay hydrated. If you start to experience any of the symptoms, move to a cool, air conditioned place ASAP. Stay safe everyone!
