Dry Wednesday; Showers late-workweek

Dry, seasonable air moved into Southern New England on Tuesday as high pressure moved in from the west. The northerly breeze will shift to the northeast and lighten to 5-10 mph overnight. The temperature will drop into the low to mid 40s by dawn Wednesday. Wednesday looks like a delightful day, with highs in the low to mid 60s under sunny skies. There will be  a 10-15 mph east-northeast breeze.

While we’re enjoying pleasant weather in New England, a storm will continue brewing off the Southeast US coast. This storm, fueled by the remnants of Karen, will drift to the north and bring rain to the Mid-Atlantic on Wednesday. The rain will continue to creep north on Thursday and may reach the Southern New England coast by midday. Look for increasing clouds on Thursday with showers developing in the afternoon from south to north. Highs will only be in the low 60s after a morning low temperature near 50. The wind will increase out of the northeast to 10-25 mph.

The Mid-Atlantic will get the lion's share of the rain from the storm, but some showers are likely in Southern New England late in the workweek
The Mid-Atlantic will get the lion’s share of the rain from the storm, but some showers are likely in Southern New England late in the workweek as the storm drifts north

Showers are likely Thursday night and Friday. A gusty northeasterly breeze will keep it cool, with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. The showers may linger Friday night into early Saturday as high pressure very slowly builds in from the north. A drying trend is likely on Saturday. The showers should move south into the Mid-Atlantic, with mostly cloudy skies in Southern New England. Highs will be in the low 60s.

The storm will be meandering off the Mid-Atlantic coast on Sunday. Right now, it looks like it will be far enough south that Southern New England will have a dry, seasonable day. It’s possible the storm will drift north again on Columbus Day bringing rain back to Southern New England – at least near the coast.There is a lot of uncertainty with the forecast after Friday. Stay with for the latest.
