Southern New England forecast: Zzzz

The beat goes on. Monday was another dry and cool day in Southern New England. The only variation over the past six days has been the cloud cover, and, , following a weekend where it was partly to mostly sunny, Monday was back to partly to mostly cloudy skies. Highs were in the upper 40s in most places, and lows Monday night should be in the upper 20s to mid 30s under partly cloudy skies.

Tuesday looks very similar to Monday, with highs in the upper 40s and a blend of clouds and sun. As has been the case for several days, the best chance of seeing clouds is on Cape Cod and the islands due to the persistent east-northeast breeze. The large ocean storm, the one that looked like it may be a Nor’easter for the Mid-Atlantic and New England, will continue to swirl around in the Atlantic Ocean through the end of the week. It is status quo for Wednesday, with partly to mostly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 40s to low 50s. The breeze will continue out of the east northeast as the storm spins and high pressure to our northeast keeps it harmlessly out to sea.

Dry weather for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is shaping up to be a decent day. The only concern is for some stubborn low clouds in the morning, especially near the coast. It will be seasonably cool, with lows in the 30s and highs in the low 50s. The best chance of seeing extended sunshine on Thanksgiving is away from the coast in the afternoon. The breeze will be out of the northeast (what else is new?) at 10-20 mph.

Black Friday shoppers won’t have to deal with any inclement weather, and it will not be too chilly, either. The temperature near dawn should range from the upper 20s to the mid 30s – not too bad for this time of the year. Highs will be in the low to mid 50s with partly sunny skies on Friday afternoon.

Windy, chilly end to the weekend

A strong cold front will act as the kicker to boot that Ocean Storm to the east, and bring a different weather pattern for the first time in 10 days on Saturday. The timing of the front is still in question, but, right now, it looks like it will be Saturday morning. You can expect a gusty northwesterly wind to kick in after the front passes, and some rain/snow showers are possible. Again, it’s a little too early to say if the rain/snow shower, gusty wind threat is Saturday morning or afternoon. The air behind the front is chilly, and the high temperature on Sunday may struggle to reach 40. It will stay brisk, chilly, and dry on Monday.
