The low temperature was in the 30s early Tuesday, and Wednesday morning looks similarly cool in Southern New England. The low temperature Tuesday at TF Green Airport was 38° – just 3° off the record low temperature of 35° set in 1987. The record low temperature for Wednesday is 36° (1947). It is unlikely that it will be quite that chilly in the Providence area. Under clear skies, the low temperature in Southern New England will range from the mid 30s to the low 40s.
After a sunny start, clouds will increase during the day on Wednesday. Some rain showers are possible in the afternoon and evening as a warm front moves east through New England. It will be milder, with highs in the low to mid 60s. The wind will be out of the south between 10-25 mph in the afternoon. The shower threat ends around midnight, with some clearing possible by early Thursday morning. The temperature will drop into the low 50s.
Thursday looks terrific. It will be mostly sunny, warm, and dry. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s inland, and near 70 at the coast. There will be a west to southwest breeze between 10-20 mph. It will stay mainly clear and mild through Friday and into the weekend. Highs will be near 70 inland on Friday and Saturday. A sea breeze will keep it cooler near the coast. Friday should be mostly sunny, with a few more clouds in the forecast for Saturday.
Sunday is shaping up to be dry and seasonably cool. A south-southeast wind combined with some clouds may keep temperatures in the low to mid 60s during the afternoon. Right now, it looks like the dry pattern will last until, at least, the middle of next week before a slow-moving system brings rain to the East Coast.
