Dry and seasonable weekend ahead

Friday went from bad to worse with very chilly rain (and even some sleet) setting in during the day. Steady rain should end by midnight, but it will stay damp through dawn. The low temperature will be in the mid to upper 30s. The clouds will break up between 9-11 am, and Saturday afternoon will be decent with partly sunny skies. The temperature should reach the mid to upper 50s with a light westerly breeze.

Clouds will drift through late Saturday night as a disturbance passes. A few light rain showers can’t be ruled our around dawn on Sunday. Lows will be in the 40s. Sunday will not be as mild as Saturday, but it will not be a bad day, either. Look for partly to mostly cloudy skies, with highs in the low to mid 50s – just a bit cool for mid-April. Sunday night looks clear and cool. Lows will be in the mid to upper 30s.

There could be a bit of patchy frost in the countryside on Sunday night. Keep that in mind if you have any young vegetation that will need to be covered or brought in. The normal last frost in Southern New England is in late-April near the coast, and in mid-May in the normally cooler spots.

There should be some fine weather early next week. Monday will be similar to this weekend’s weather. It will get warmer Tuesday and Wednesday. You can expect highs in the 60s inland on Tuesday, and it may reach 70 inland on Wednesday. Both days will be considerably cooler near the coast because of an onshore breeze.
