Low Humidity Brings Relief to the East

After a muggy and stormy Labor Day, much of the East will be refreshed with low humidity and some sunshine.

The same cold front that brought afternoon showers and thunderstorms across the East on the holiday on Monday will continue to push eastward on Tuesday. The front will also produce another round of showers and thunderstorms.

Cities such as Boston, Mass.; Providence, R.I.; and Bangor, Maine, have showers and thunderstorms in the forecast for Tuesday.

Some of Tuesday's rain could further aggravate flooding problems left over from Labor Day in the East.

In Cranston, R.I., heavy rain from thunderstorms left 60 people homeless when their houses were suddenly flooded. In the first two days of September, Providence already received almost 90 percent of the typical monthly rainfall.

However, in the wake of the front bringing these storms, low humidity will flood the region by the evening.

Dew points throughout the weekend were in the upper 60s across New England, but after the passing of the front, dew points will be in the middle 50s.

The mid-Atlantic down through much of the Southeast will be feeling pleasant with at least some sunshine in the wake of the front.

This high pressure will remain over the East for much of the week from Maine to the Carolinas. Farther south, the tail end of the front will linger along the Gulf Coast and bring showers and thunderstorms.

Looking forward to the coming weekend, another front will push through the Northeast. This will bring the chance for showers and thunderstorms along with more cool temperatures.
