RI Weekend Weather Wrap – Sat/Sun, July 18/19, 2020

by Jack Donnelly, meteorologist

A mid-summer hot and humid weekend for your enjoyment.

Saturday will start with some patchy morning fog mainly along the coastal areas and a bit inland until a couple of hours after sunrise. That low level moisture will add to increasing dew points and overall higher relative humidity for a hot and humid afternoon with lots of sun. Morning lows in the upper 60’s rise to around 90 with a gentle but sultry southerly breeze.

Sunday 7/19/20:

Day two in a mid July heat wave. Overnight temps will not cool enough to generate much in the way of mist or fog, so a full day of heating will allow temps to climb a bit higher in the hazy afternoon, mainly in the low 90’s for a high up from a low in the low 70’s. A slightly stronger breeze will take some of the edge off of the heat, some gusts in the 20-30 mph range.
