The first half of the weekend was damp and dreary. The second half, while not spectacular, will be better with some midday sunshine and highs Sunday in the mid 40s. There may be a murky start on Sunday, especially near the coast, but by late-morning some sun should burn through the overcast and allow for decent weather for a few hours. It will not be long before the clouds gather again, and rain showers may return by midnight.
Showers, which may be heavy at times, are likely late Sunday night as a warm front punches through Southern New England. The temperature will rise into the 50s by early Monday morning, and it will stay on the mild side all into Monday night. The best chance of steady rain is before dawn Monday and late-Monday evening, but the rest of the time will be cloudy and damp with showers, mist, and drizzle. Highs may approach 60 degrees near the coast, and some patchy, dense fog is possible. The weather doesn’t look like an enormous factor for the Patriots-Texans game at Gillette on Monday night, but those that are going can expect damp, mild, breezy conditions.
Rain will end Monday night, and Tuesday will become partly cloudy, with highs in the low to mid 40s. Drier, cooler air will move in Tuesday night, with the temperature falling to the 20s by early Wednesday morning. It looks like it will stay storm-free into next weekend, with highs in the upper 30s Wednesday, low 40s Thursday, and mid to upper 40s Friday. Late next weekend another storm will head for the Northeast. At this point, the storm track favorites cool rain for all of Southern New England.
