Warm and humid weather in place for the beginning of the week. For Monday, more sun than clouds, highs into the 80s, with a chance of an isolate thunderstorm. Ozone will go well into the MODERATE range, but cleaner southerly winds during the afternoon will prevent ozone from reaching UNHEALTHY. Fine particles expected well into the MODERATE, highest around Providence. A bit more clouds on Tuesday, with showers and thunderstorms likely, highs again in the 80s, humid, with steady south southwest winds keeping the air quality GOOD. A front should pass early Wednesday with showers or thunder, with drier weather late day, and air quality GOOD under light northwest flows. Highs again into the 80s.
