Update: Severe thunderstorms likely today
Despite those partly sunny skies, severe thunderstorms are possible in southern New England this afternoon, the National Weather Service warns.
Some thunderstorms may produce damaging winds and possibly some large hail. The most likely time for potentially damaging weather would be from 1 to 7 p.m.
While these storms are possible in any part of southern New England, the most likely location would be in areas north and west of the cities of Boston and Providence.
If any thunderstorms approach your location, the weather service reminds, you should take cover immediately. Check radar for their latest movements.
The weather service also posted today a report of a record rainfall yesterday for the Providence area, at 1.46 inches. That broke the old record of 0.93 for the date, set in 1935.
Currently, the temperature is 71 degrees in Providence, with a light south wind. Highs should reach into the low 80s.
There's also a chance of showers and thunderstorms tonight. But the humidity will drop after midnight, the wind will shift to the north, and temps tomorrow should be in the 70s under partly sunny skies.
