Windy and mild Friday

Some clouds arrived Thursday afternoon on a southeasterly breeze that cooled the coast late in the day. The southeast wind will continue Thursday night, and the clouds should lower and thicken, with some patchy fog developing. On Friday, the wind will come around to the south-southwest, and increase to 15-30 mph during the day. Clouds will be stubborn, but it will be relatively mild inland, with highs reaching the mid 60s with full cloud cover, and near 70° if the sun breaks through around midday for an hour or two. The coast will feel the influence of the strong breeze over the chilly ocean, and highs will be in the 50s. There is also a better chance of the low clouds, mist, and fog persisting throughout the day near the coast.

A few, stray showers are possible Friday afternoon, but most of the time it will be rain-free. There is a better chance of showers by late Friday evening as a cold front approaches from the west. Showers, with the potential for thunderstorms, are likely from around midnight through mid-morning (10 am) on Saturday. The temperature will drop into the low to mid 50s Friday night and hold steady through Saturday. Rain should end by midday Saturday, and some sun may break through in the afternoon as a drier westerly wind develops.

Sunday and Monday look decent, but a bit cool for late-April. Highs will be in the low to mid 50s with mostly sunny skies. Clouds will increase late Monday, and some rain is possible Tuesday as a storm in the Atlantic Ocean brushes by New England.
