Cool and quiet in the midweek

Monday’s weather made a 180° turn in just a few hours. After a wet and windy start, the sun broke through, the wind relaxed, and the temperature stayed in the 60s. That may be the last time we see the mid 60s in Southern New England for a while. It will turn much cooler in the midweek. The temperature will drop into the mid to upper 30s Monday night under mainly clear skies. There will be  a 10-15 mph northwesterly breeze that makes it feel colder early Tuesday morning.

Tuesday will be bright, brisk, and cool. Highs will be in the low to mid 40s with a blend of clouds and sun, and a 15-25 mph west-northwest wind. The temperature will fall into the 20s to low 30s Tuesday night. Skies will be clear, and the wind will diminish to 5-10 mph.

Wednesday and Thursday look mainly clear with highs in the low to mid 40s. There is a better chance of the temperature reaching 45° on Thursday. The wind will be light. Dry weather is likely through Friday. It should be a bit warmer Friday afternoon, with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s.

The weather will go downhill early in the weekend. Rain will develop Friday night or Saturday morning, and continue off and on through the day. The breeze will increase out of the southeast. Highs will be in the 50s. Rain may continue through Saturday night before ending early Sunday.

Much colder weather is ahead for the end of the weekend and early next week. Sunday looks blustery with the temperature falling from the 40s in the morning through the 30s in the afternoon into the 20s by Sunday evening. Wind chills will fall into the teens, and the wind will likely gust over 30 mph. The early outlook for the Patriots vs. Broncos at Gillette Stadium Sunday eveing is for gusty winds, temperatures falling through the 20s, and wind chills in the teens. At least it will be dry!
