The high temperature flirted with 70 degrees away from the coast on Monday. Hopefully, you had a chance to enjoy it, because there is not anything close to that warm in the forecast for Southern New England for a while. A sharp cold front will move through Tuesday morning bringing showers and colder weather.
Showers will develop late Monday night or early Tuesday, and general damp, dreary conditions can be expected through the day Tuesday into Tuesday night. There will not be a lot of heavy rain in the afternoon, but clouds will be stubborn, and the temperature will drop from the low to mid 60s early in the day to the 40s by Tuesday evening.
Dry, seasonably cool into the weekend
The sky may clear late Tuesday night, with the temperature falling into the 30s by dawn Wednesday. Wednesday through Friday all look dry, but with varying cloud cover. At times it will be mainly clear, but there is the possibility of seeing some low clouds develop in response to a persistent northeasterly breeze. Highs will be in the mid to upper 40s all three days.
Right now, the weekend looks mainly dry. Both days look similar, with partly to mostly cloudy skies and highs around 50 degrees. The overnight low temperature from Thursday to Sunday morning will be in the low to mid 30s for most, some 20s are possible if skies stay clear and the wind relaxes in the countryside.
Looking ahead to next week, the weather action will likely pick up in the Mid-Atlantic and New England. Right Weather Pro members can get the latest on that situation in the Long Range Forecast posted Monday afternoon.
