Weather Now: Quieter, Warmer Weather Today
 
We are back to dry and warm conditions for today, a welcome change after two unsettled days at the beginning of the week. Yesterday’s thunderstorms brought copious amounts of rain to some inland areas, with the highest totals in the upper part of Narragansett Bay through Bristol County, MA, where around 3-7″ of rain fell. That’s more rain in one afternoon than many have seen all season. We’ll have a break from the stormy weather today, with partly sunny skies. It’s going to be a very warm afternoon and still a bit muggy, with highs in the mid to upper 80s inland and low 80s at the coast. Hour by Hour // A look at the next hours’ conditions » Winds will be from the west at 5-10 mph. If you’re planning on going to area beaches, use caution in the water as there is a moderate risk for rip currents along the coast. Ocean, Bay & Beach // A look at the conditions by the coast » This evening and tonight will be mostly clear, with some patchy fog developing late. Temperatures in the 70s in the evening will eventually cool into the mid to upper 60s by dawn.
