A storm that has delivered heavy rain to the Mid-Atlantic will do nothing more than bring a few stray showers to Southeastern New England before drifting south on Friday. Scattered light showers are possible late Thursday night into Friday morning. The best chance of seeing any rain is near the coast. Friday will be a breezy day with highs in the mid to upper 60s under mostly cloudy skies.
The Columbus Day weekend looks mainly dry, with a brighter sky likely on Sunday and Monday. Clouds will be stubborn on Saturday. After a morning low temperature in the upper 40s to low 50s, the afternoon high will be in the mid 60s. There may be a bit of mist early in the day. The east-northeast breeze will stay active between 10-20 mph. A widely scattered shower cannot be ruled out.
High pressure will arrive in New England from Eastern Canada on Sunday. Both Sunday and Columbus Day look partly sunny with seasonable temperatures. Highs will be in the low to mid 60s, and lows will be in the mid to upper 40s. Skies will be mainly clear to partly cloudy at night.
