Hot Thursday, Storm Threat Returns for Friday
The southwesterly flow we've been seeing today will continue tonight and produce fog along the coast. Otherwise, most of the state will see mostly clear skies and temperatures in the 60s. The only exception is Down East, which will have temperatures dropping into the 50s.
Tomorrow, the heat we've been seeing continues with temperatures throughout the state getting up into the 80s. As usual, the exception is the shoreline that will only see the mid-upper 70s. Mostly cloudy skies are expected throughout the state with dew points in the 60s, so it will also be fairly muggy.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will impact the state on Friday. The most widespread storms will occur in the evening and overnight hours as the cold front approaches our area. The primary threat associated with this system is damaging winds. Temperatures on Friday will be in the 80s again, with dewpoints in the 60s. In other words, another warm, muggy day.
Rainy Saturday, Cool Down Through
