The on again, off again ocean storm looks like it is off for good as it passes well east of Southern New England on Monday. It will be a partly cloudy day with a light northeasterly breeze. Highs will be in the mid 60s in E MA, and near 70 in RI. Overall, it is going to be a very quiet week weather-wise in Southern New England, with a nice warm-up in the midweek for the start of October.
Monday night will be mainly clear and seasonably cool. Lows will be in the upper 40s to low 50s. Tuesday looks partly sunny and warmer, with highs in the low to mid 70s. The warm-up continues on Wednesday. It will be mostly sunny, with highs approaching 80 away from the coast. A southwest wind near the coast will keep the temperature in the low 70s.
Thursday will also be a warm day, with highs again near 80 inland. It will be another partly to mostly sunny day with slightly cooler conditions near the coast. As the weather warms up in the midweek a strong cold front will be taking shape in the Central United States. There may be a few more clouds on Friday, but it looks dry and mild, with highs in the 70s. There will likely be a gusty southwesterly wind Friday afternoon.
The wind will stay active next weekend, with a 15-25 south-southwesterly breeze likely on Saturday ahead of the cold front. It looks like another mild day. Highs will be in the 70s, but the wind coming off the ocean will make it cooler by late in the day near the coast. Eventually, there will be some showers as the cold front nears. Right now, the forecast is for the rain to hold off until, at least, Saturday night, and it’s possible it will stay dry until Sunday afternoon. If the front comes through Saturday night, then Sunday will be dry, breezy, and seasonably cool.
