The weekend featured a huge temperature swing in Southern New England. The lowest temperatures on Saturday morning were in the mid 20s. The highest temperatures by Sunday afternoon bounced back to nearly 70 degrees in some places. The week will begin with more unseasonably mild weather. The temperature will be in the upper 50s to low 60s early Monday morning. There may be some mist and fog to burn off during the early-morning hours. Monday afternoon looks mostly cloudy, breezy, and mild. Highs will be in the upper 60s to low 70s.
A cold front will move through Monday night. Some showers are likely during the evening. Showers should end by 2-3 am, and there will be some clearing in Rhode Island and Massachusetts by dawn Tuesday. The temperature will fall into the upper 40s to low 50s late at night.
Nice midweek weather
It will not be as mild Tuesday and Wednesday, but we should see some sunshine. Highs will be in the upper 50s Tuesday, and close to 60 on Wednesday. Lows will be in the 40s. Thursday should be warmer, with highs in the mid to upper 60s under mostly sunny skies.
Rain threat next weekend
A slow-moving system threatens to bring some rain between Friday and Sunday. Right now, it looks like the best chance of seeing steady rain is Saturday, but the timing of the system is still somewhat in question because the storm is more than 3000 miles away. It is the same one that brought some rain to the Patriots-Seahawks game in Seattle on Sunday.
