Plenty of sunshine this weekend

Southern New England will see seasonable, dry, and pleasant weather this weekend. Saturday should feature a ton of sunshine with highs in the mid 60s inland, and near 60 at the coast. The temperature will settle back into the 50s in the afternoon near the coast due to an onshore breeze.

Saturday night looks mainly clear and cool. High pressure overhead will allow the wind to relax and the temperature to fall to near freezing in the countryside. It’s possible there will be some patchy frost. In the cities and near the coast, the low temperature will be in the upper 30s to low 40s.

Sunday will be another great day. Look for mostly sunny skies, with highs in the mid to upper 60s inland, and near 60 at the coast. Once again, there will be a sea breeze. The weather should stay quiet into early next week, and it’s possible that the nice stretch of weather will continue through the whole workweek. Right now, it looks like the only chance of showers is on Tuesday as a disturbance over the Mid-Atlantic tries to slide east before reinforcing high pressure moves in from Eastern Canada to prolong the dry weather in Southern New England.

While it stays mainly dry over New England, it will be rainy in the Southeast and part of the Mid-Atlantic. If the storm system over that part of the county moves farther northeast than currently forecast, it will put a quick end to the nice stretch in Southern New England. It’s something for us to keep an eye on this weekend.
