Forecast Update: Sunday 1pm
Showers will develop from S to N Sunday afternoon. The cool rain will continue this evening. Columbus Day looks dry, but rain will likely return late Monday night and continue on Tuesday. It will be another cool day, with highs in the low to mid 50s and an easterly breeze.
Overall, it looks like a cooler than normal week in Southern New England.
From Saturday evening
Sunday will undoubtedly pale in comparison to a bright, beautiful, and mild Saturday, but there is some hope for mainly dry weather during the daylight hours.
A front will move through Saturday evening. It may bring a passing shower as it moves through. Otherwise, you can expect partly cloudy skies Saturday night. The temperature will fall from a high in the low to mid 70s to the upper 40s to low 50s by dawn Sunday.
There may be some sun for a little while on Sunday, but the trend will be for increasing clouds by late in the morning. The onset of showers will hold off until between 3-6 pm, with a steady, light, chilly rain for a few hours during the evening. Highs will be in the mid to upper 50s, with the temperature falling into the 40s to low 50s once the rain begins.
Showers will be out of the picture by Monday morning, and the weather should be decent, but a bit cool, on Columbus Day. Highs will be in the low to mid 50s with partly sunny skies.
The temperature will moderate a bit in the middle of the week, with highs by Wednesday in the low to mid 60s. A duo of late-week cold fronts will open the door to the coolest air of the season by next weekend. Lows will likely be in the 30s, with highs of 50-55 next Saturday.
