The workweek will end with some rain after a beautiful stretch of weather concludes Thursday evening. Clouds will quickly increase after midnight, and a few showers may arrive by dawn. The wind will increase out of the east to 5-15 mph by early Friday morning, and the temperature will hold in the low to mid 50s from midnight until dawn.
Showers are likely on Friday, and there may be some heavy downpours. The rain will be heaviest over western New England. The wind will be strongest in SE MA, with some 25-30 mph gusts possible on the Cape and Islands. It will be relatively mild, with highs in the 60s.
It will stay mild and showery Friday night. The temperature will probably not fall below 60 degrees. A few showers may linger until about dawn on Saturday, but the sun will break through the clouds during the day, and the temperature will jump into the upper 60s to low 70s with a west-southwesterly breeze. Right now, the weather looks good for the peak of the Orionid Meteor Shower on Saturday night. The biggest concern will be for some fog to form late at night. Sunday should be a fine late-October day, with some sunshine and highs in the low 60s .
