Newport weather

Hi! Heading to Newport and Watch Hill this weekend and next week- seeing a lot of rain in the forecast. It’s our first trip there - anyone know if RI weather is known to rain for a short period of time, or is it usually like all day rain.

Chance of thunderstorms means it isn't going to be a all day wash out, and a good part of the day could very well be sunny and humid. Showers mid-week...hmm.. We haven't had much rain all summer, but who knows...WPRI for local forecasts.

Out of the last several rain predictions over the last month or so, only one came true....last Saturday. You may want to check marine forecasts instead of mainstream sources. They tend to be slightly more accurate.

Thank you! So glad to know it generally doesn't mean all day rain in that area! Appreciate the local link as well!
