The thick clouds that plagued most of Southern New England on Saturday afternoon will not be as prevalent for the rest of the Columbus Day weekend. In spite of the clouds, the high temperature on Saturday was in the mid to upper 60s for all but the Eastern MA coast. It has been two weeks since the last colder than normal day in the Providence area, and the rest of the holiday weekend will be on the mild side.
Sunday will be partly sunny with a high temperature in the low 60s. Once again, there will be a noticeable easterly breeze, but it will not be as strong as it was on Saturday. The wind will be 10-15 mph. The weather looks fine for the Patriots vs. Saints in Foxboro, and the Red Sox vs. Tigers at Fenway Park.
Skies will be mainly clear Sunday night. The temperature will dip into the 40s by dawn on Columbus Day. The weather looks decent for outdoor events on Monday. Highs will be in the low 60s with mostly sunny skies. Tuesday will be a mild day, with highs close to 70° inland. It will be partly sunny.
Look for increasing clouds on Wednesday. Showers are possible – especially in Eastern MA. Highs will be in the mid to upper 60s. A cold front with scattered showers will move through on Thursday. It does not look like a washout. Highs will be in the 60s again. The weather pattern may lead to more scattered showers Friday afternoon and at some point late next weekend.
