Monday afternoon reached 60 degrees in many Southern New England cities and towns. If you’re enjoying this rather warm weather, you’ll be happy to know that there is more unseasonably mild weather in the forecast for Tuesday and the first half of Wednesday. Monday night will be cool, but not too chilly, with lows in the mid to upper 30s. Some patchy fog may develop, and it could take a few hours for the fog and/or low clouds to burn off to partly to mostly cloudy skies by midday Tuesday. Highs Tuesday will be in the mid to upper 50s.
An approaching cold front will bring some showers late Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. Tuesday night will be very mild, with temperatures staying in the upper 40s to low 50s. It will be in the 50s through midday Wednesday, but cooler, drier air will move in late Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday evening. Look for a blend of clouds and sun on Wednesday afternoon with temperatures gradually falling through the 40s.
The temperature will tumble into the 20s by Thursday morning, and it will be nowhere near as mild on Thursday afternoon. It should be partly sunny and brisk, with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s. At this point, Friday looks mainly dry and seasonable, with highs in the 40s. A slow-developing system is worth watching this weekend into early next week. Right now, there does not look like a significant steady rain threat this weekend, but some showers can’t be ruled out Saturday or Sunday. The best chance of steady rain is not until Monday and/or Tuesday.
