Rain showers arrived in Southern New England as expected on Sunday evening. The bulk of the rain will be gone by dawn, but there will be another round of showers that develops Monday afternoon as a stronger, secondary cold front moves through Southern New England. The temperature will be in the 40s Monday morning, then soar into the 50s to low 60s by midday. The sky will be partly cloudy, and there will be a 10-20 mph west-southwesterly breeze. More rain showers are possible from mid-afternoon through mid-evening on Monday. The sky will clear late Monday night with a northwesterly wind ushering in some chilly air for the midweek.
Cool shot Tuesday-Thursday
Tuesday looks partly sunny, blustery, and cool for early-April. The high temperature will only be in the low to mid 40s. Wednesday, while similarly cool, may not be as windy. The low temperature will be in the upper 20s, and the high will be in the low to mid 40s. After a chilly start, Thursday will likely turn out to be a nice day. The temperature will rise from the 20s to the upper 40s to low 50s under mostly sunny skies. The wind will swing around to the west-southwest in the afternoon.
Chance of rain Friday
We’re eyeing the potential for some late-workweek rain as a storm in the southern branch of the jet stream moves from the Southeast to the Atlantic Ocean east of Nantucket by Friday night. The storm may come close enough to clip Southern New England with some chilly rain showers Friday afternoon and night. It looks like it will be out of the picture by Saturday morning, and most of next weekend looks decent. The highs will be seasonable, in the low to mid 50s, and lows will be in the 30s. Saturday will be partly sunny. Sunday looks partly to mostly cloudy as a system moves from the Great Lakes to the Northeast. Right now, we have a forecast of increasing clouds, with showers possible in the evening. We’ll be watching the timing of the showers closely as the week progresses.
