Forecast Update: Stays gray in Southern New England
The dreary weather that we’ve seen for the better part of the past two days will be staying with us on Thursday. The day will start with locally dense fog and a temperature near 60 degrees. The fog may lift to cloudy skies, but it will continue to be damp, with some patchy drizzle and mist possible. There is also a good chance of seeing another round of rain similar to what we saw Tuesday afternoon and evening. The timing of the rain is a little later in the day than it was on Tuesday, developing in the late-afternoon and continuing through this evening. The high temperature Thursday will be in the mid to upper 60s, with a light east-southeast breeze. If you’re heading to Give & Glam in Newport, you can check out that forecast here.
We will finally get back to some sunshine on Friday. It will be quite mild, with highs inland in the mid 70s, and close to 70 near the coast. Friday night should be dry and mild, with a low in the upper 50s.
Jeckyll and Hyde Columbus Day Weekend
The Columbus Day weekend will begin with some mild weather, but a huge cool down is heading our way Sunday and Monday. Saturday will be partly sunny with the chance of an afternoon or evening shower as a cold front moves through. The front should come through late enough that the temperature will make it into the 70s inland again. The weather for the Flames of Hope Waterfire looks ok, with the chance of a shower, and temperatures falling through the 60s into the 50s.
The temperature free fall will continue on Sunday. In fact, at midday Sunday, with some rain coming down, it may be more than 25 degrees cooler than it was on Saturday at the same time. The Patriots and Broncos play a big game at Gillette Stadium, and the weather will likely be a big factor for the fans and players. You can expect rain and temperatures in the 40s or low 50s by the time the game starts.
Rain should end early Monday, possibly before dawn. It will be partly sunny, but rather cool, with highs in the mid 50s on Monday afternoon. The chill should ease by the middle of next week.
