Low temperatures Thursday morning will be around 60 region wide. A cold front will push south on Thursday. This front will be fairly weak but it may set off a shower or thunderstorm later in the day. Temperatures will be similar to today with highs in the mid to upper 80's. Dew points will be higher tomorrow so it will feel more humid. Here is the forecast surface chart tomorrow evening.

Saturday is simply hot and humid. I believe the day will be mostly dry in Southeastern New England but I can't rule out a shower/thunderstorm in Western MA. This is Worcester, Boston and Providence's best day to hit 90.

Now notice the area of low pressure sitting off the Georgia coast Sunday AM. If you can recall the sea surface temperature graphic above you will remember this is sitting over warm water. Hurricane season does not start until next Wednesday but it is possible a Tropical or Subtropical Storm forms off the Carolina coast. This will have no bearing on the weekend forecast here in Southern New England but it may play a role in our weather next week. There isn't much to move this system so it will sit and spin offshore. It may enhance moisture in New England the middle/end of next week. The National Hurricane Center gives the low a 50% chance of developing into a tropical/subtropical storm in the next 5 days.
