The pendulum is quickly swinging back in the other direction after the weekend kicked off with the coldest morning of the season. The sun was out all afternoon, and highs Saturday bounced back into the low to mid 50s.
Sunday will feature a cloudy morning with the chance of showers as a warm front lifts to the north. Right now, it looks like the best chance of rain is inland, but showers can’t be ruled out near the coast. Those running or watching the Amica Marathon in Newport can expect cloudy skies, the chance of a few showers, and an increasing southwesterly breeze that may reach 15-25 mph by late in the morning. The shower threat in Southeastern New England comes to an end by 2pm.
The sky may brighten by late Sunday afternoon as the warm front moves into Northern New England. The wind will pick up out of the southwest to 10-25 mph, with the strongest breeze near the coast. Highs will be in the low to mid 60s. It’s hard to believe it, but just 48 hours removed from low temperatures in the 20s, Monday may feature low temperatures in the 60s! The temperature will not fall much at all Sunday night, and with a southwest wind and some sunshine on Monday, the high temperature will be in the low to mid 70s inland, and mid to upper 60s near the coast. Some showers are possible Monday night into Tuesday as a cold front moves through. It will be dry and seasonable Tuesday through Thursday in Southern New England. Highs will be in the low 60s, lows will be in the 40s.
The weather may take a turn for the worse next weekend as a slow-moving storm approaches from the west. Right now, it looks like there is a decent chance of some rain from late Friday through Saturday, and they may even linger into Sunday. We’ll fine tune that forecast early next week.
Patriots vs. Seahawks may be rainy
Admittedly, we’re no experts on the forecasting nuances of the Pacific Northwest, but, based on the large-scale pattern, it looks like the Patriots and Seahawks could be battling the elements, as well as each other, during their late-afternoon game Sunday. Of course, last week it looked like rain for part of the Patriots-Broncos game, and it ended just prior to kickoff.
