As the high shifts east of New England later in the week, warmer and more humid conditions will bring chances for showers and possible thunderstorms to the area Thursday into Thursday night. A few lingering showers are possible on Friday morning with dry conditions later Friday and through the upcoming weekend as high pressure builds back across southeastern Canada and New England.
