Earlier on rightweather.com we updated you on the potential for some very cool weather at the end of October. Before that happens, however, there is more unseasonably warm weather in the forecast for the end of the workweek. Thursday and Friday will both be much warmer than normal (63°/43°), with Thursday likely the warmer of the two days.
After starting the day in the mid to upper 50s, the temperature will climb into the upper 60s to low 70s by midday. If the sun breaks through the clouds for a few hours, the high temperature may reach the mid 70s inland. It will stay unseasonably mild with rain showers Thursday night. Lows will be in the mid to upper 50s. Friday should feature more sunshine, but will probably be a few degrees cooler, with highs near 70° – not bad for mid-October!
While warm, the high temperatures will be nowhere near the records for the dates. The record high in the Providence area for Thursday is 88° set in 1947. The record high for Friday is 85° set way back in 1908.
