The warm October in Southern New England rolled right along on Friday. There was plenty of sunshine and highs ranging from the mid 60s to low 70s. The fresh westerly breeze will diminish Friday evening, and the temperature will drop into the mid to upper 40s under clear skies. Some in the countryside may see the temperature briefly dip to around 40° near dawn. Don’t forget to check out the full Hunter’s Moon Friday evening.
There are a few more days of relatively mild weather in the forecast before a big pattern change next week. Saturday will feature sunshine followed by afternoon clouds. Highs will be in the low to mid 60s with a light breeze that turns onshore in the afternoon. Scattered showers are possible Saturday night as a combination of two systems pass by Southern New England. The weather looks decent for the Red Sox vs. Tigers at Fenway Park in the afternoon or evening. Showers should hold off in Boston until late in the evening – at the earliest. It will stay in the low to mid 50s Saturday night.
High pressure will move in the west setting the stage for a dry and breezy Sunday in Southern New England. There will be a blend of clouds and sunshine with a 10-25 mph west-northwest breeze. Highs will be in the low 60s. The weather will also be fair for the Patriots vs. Jets in New Jersey.
The temperature will drop into the upper 30s to mid 40s Sunday night as the wind diminishes under clear skies. The weather should be decent early next week. Highs will reach the 60s inland on Monday and Tuesday. Monday looks like the nicer of the two days with less wind and more sunshine. The pattern begins to change Tuesday night as a cold front moves through.
Wednesday looks seasonable, but cooler than it has been, with highs in the upper 50s. There is the potential for a chilly rainstorm late next workweek, but not all computer models agree on the development of the storm. If it does not occur, you can expect a November-like chilly in the air, even with some sunshine. Highs will only be in the upper 40s to mid 50s, and lows will be near freezing.
