Sunny, breezy, mild Friday

Clouds were stubborn well into the afternoon in Southeastern New England on Thursday, but that did not prevent the temperature from reaching the upper 60s to low 70s in most spots. It will stay very mild Thursday night, with clouds returning and scattered showers possible. The best chance of rain is away from the coast between 11pm-5am. Low temperatures will be in the mid to upper 50s.

The wind will shift and come out of the west on Friday. The breeze will kick up to 10-25 mph by late-morning. Look for a lot of sunshine with highs near 70 inland, and in the 60s at the coast. Friday night will be mainly clear and comfortably cool. Lows will be in the low to mid 40s in the countryside, and mid to upper 40s in the cities and near the coast.

Saturday will be a fine day, with morning sunshine followed by late-day clouds. Highs will be in the mid to upper 60s. There will be a 10-15 mph south-southwest breeze in the afternoon. Two fast-moving systems will pass by Southern New England Saturday night. One will move through Eastern Canada, the other will be offshore. There will be limited interaction between the two systems, and any rain showers will be light and scattered.

Skies will clear on Sunday, with seasonable high temps in the low 60s. It will cool into the upper 30s to mid 40s under clear skies Sunday night. Another brief warm-up is ahead for early next week before the coolest air of the season to date arrives. After a chilly start, it should reach 60° with sunshine on Monday afternoon. Tuesday looks like the warmest day of next week with highs in the low to mid 60s. It will become cloudy with the chance of showers by late in the day.

Much cooler weather is in the forecast for the middle of next week. Lows will be in the 30s with highs in the low to mid 50s on Wednesday and Thursday. It will be dry and breezy, making it feel a bit cooler than the real air temperature.
