Summer heat and humidity linger into this afternoon, but we’re tracking a cold front that will bring us back to spring this weekend. That front could also help spark a brief thunderstorm this afternoon.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed parts of RI and CT as an area to watch for general (non-severe) thunderstorms.
However, a few of the storms could be briefly strong with gusty winds and dangerous lightning.
Our hi-res HRRR model shows the storms developing in the mid-afternoon, mainly from Providence to the coast.
It’s a short window of opportunity for any storms. Drier air will continue to push south and squash our storm risk and the summer heat from the last few days.
A beautiful, dry and seasonable weekend is on the way.
