Forecast discussion: High pressure will be moving offshore this evening, as a cold front passing through eastern Canada will move into Providence on Monday. We will see some scattered showers into Monday night, before the front moves offshore. We will see dry weather for the majority of the week.
The front will pass through Rhode Island Monday afternoon, and we will see some scattered showers through the day. However, precipitation will be light, as it will take some time for the atmosphere to get saturated once again. By Monday evening, cooler air will move over the region, and we will have one of the coolest days of the late summer. Highs will barely reach the middle 60’s, with possible frost in some areas Tuesday night.
As we move into the end of the week, high pressure will move offshore, as a warm front moves over New England on Friday. Temperatures will be warmer, especially during the overnight hours. A cold front will bring some showers and light rain late Saturday night into Sunday.
Meanwhile, Ingrid is moving into Mexico, while Humberto may regenerate. As of 5 p.m. EDT, Hurricane Ingrid was centered at 22.7N 96.3W, or about 110 miles east-northeast of Tampico, Mexico. Maximum sustained winds were at 75 mph, and is moving west-northwest at 6 mph. Within the next 24 hours, the center will make landfall, and Ingrid will slowly weaken to 40 mph within 36 hours. The system is creating plenty of rainfall, which will cause bad flooding and mudslides for eastern Mexico. Central Mexico is being threatened by Tropical Storm Manuel, which is in the Eastern Pacific.
Also, Humberto may regenerate in the next 24 hours. The remnant low still has a well-defined center, and has a 70 percent chance of becoming a tropical system once again in the next day. It has a 90 percent chance of becoming a tropical within the next 5 days.
