Mild Wednesday, late-week rain likely

Wednesday will feature partly sunny skies and mild conditions in Southern New England. The high temperature will be in the mid 60s inland, and near 60 at the coast. The wind will shift from offshore to onshore on Thursday, and cooler weather will arrive – although it will stay dry. Look for it to be partly sunny again Thursday, with highs about ten degrees lower than Wednesday – generally in the low to mid 50s.

It will warm back up some on Friday, but it does not look like a superb day. An increasing southerly wind will draw in some moisture off the Atlantic Ocean, leading to widespread clouds, and the chance of some passing showers – especially in the afternoon. The wind will likely gust over 30 mph. In spite of the clouds, the temperature will likely reach the low to mid 60s on Friday.

The best chance of rain through the weekend is Friday night into Saturday morning. A thick line of showers, with possible thunderstorms, will move through Southern New England between midnight and noon on Saturday. Drier weather arrives Saturday afternoon, but there may not be much clearing before sunset. It will be a bit cool, with temperatures in the upper 40s to low 50s. Sunday looks fine, with a blend of clouds and sun, and highs in the low to mid 50s – cool for late-April.

Looking ahead to next week, after a dry start, some rain is possible in the middle of the week. Overall, there is not a lot of very warm weather in the extended forecast. In fact, the temperature may be at or below normal for most of the week.
