Mild start, chilly end to the weekend

November got off to a windy, wet and mild start in Southern New England. A powerful weather system brought 40-60 mph wind gusts, scattered showers, and temperatures ranging from the mid 60s to low 70s on Friday. The strong gusts caused some damage in Southern New England. The wind will relax Friday night under mostly cloudy skies. A few showers are possible near the coast after midnight. The low temperature Saturday morning will be near 50°.

It will stay mild Saturday, but sharply colder weather arrives Sunday

Saturday will be partly to mostly cloudy and mild. Highs will be in the low to mid 60s with a light west-southwest breeze. The weather should be great for the Red Sox duck boat parade in Boston. Saturday evening will be pleasant, with the temperature staying in the 50s. A cold front will plow through New England late Saturday night. It will turn colder by dawn Sunday, and there is not much of a warm-up in the forecast for Sunday afternoon. A few showers are possible as the front passes after midnight. Don’t forget to set your clock back an hour before going to bed Saturday night.

The temperature will range from the low 40s Sunday morning to the mid 40s in the afternoon. It will be partly to mostly cloudy and blustery, and that will make it feel even cooler. The wind will be out of the north between 10-25 mph. It will be chilly for the tailgating and Patriots-Steelers game at Gillette Stadium. Skies will clear Sunday night, and the temperature will nosedive into the mid 20s to low 30s by dawn Monday. The wind will not completely relax, but it will diminish to around 10 mph.

Monday will also be very cool and dry. It will be mostly sunny with highs in the low to mid 40s. The cool weather stays around through Tuesday morning. Lows will be in the 20s to low 30s Tuesday morning, and it will be in the mid to upper 40s under partly cloudy skies in the afternoon. Just like this week, it will get milder in the midweek. Wednesday should be well into the 50s as it stays dry. Clouds will thicken on Thursday ahead of a cold front that will trigger showers Thursday night into Friday. Once again, it looks like there will be a gusty south-southwesterly wind and unseasonably mild conditions ahead of the front.
