Warm and Humid Today as Henri Approaches SNE

Hello everyone!

Today will feature warm and humid weather as Tropical Storm Henri approaches Southern New England. While the storm will stay too far southwest to bring significant impacts to Maine or New Hampshire, its plume of moisture will be large enough to overspread the region starting this morning.

As a result, you’ll really notice the humidity kicking into high gear today. Patchy sunshine this morning will push temps up into the low to mid 80s before clouds thicken later this afternoon. Some of those clouds will be dropping rain especially over southern and western parts of the area as Henri’s farthest outer bands interact with an upper-level trough to our west. I’m not expecting much in the way of impacts, but be aware that wet weather is possible.

As I mentioned before, I don’t see any significant impacts to our area coming from Henri as it will have plenty of time to fall apart over cold water and land before arriving here. There will be some gusty showers tomorrow through Tuesday but aside from perhaps some potential localized flooding, this should be pretty tame up here.
