A developing northeast breeze quickly cooled Southeastern New England on Monday afternoon. Clouds increased and the temperature fell into the upper 40s at the Eastern Massachusetts coast, and low to mid 50s in interior SE MA and RI. Monday night will be cloudy, breezy, and cool, with lows in the upper 30s to low 40s.
Tuesday looks like a brisk and chilly day with plenty of clouds. It will most likely stay dry through the day, but the temperature will struggle to reach 50° in Rhode Island, and will most likely get stuck in the mid 40s in Eastern Massachusetts because of the 10-25 mph northeast wind.
Showers are possible Tuesday night, and rain is likely on Wednesday. It will be unseasonably cold, with temperatures in the low to mid 40s and gusty easterly wind between 15-30 mph. Rain will continue Wednesday night into Thursday, and the wind will shift to the south bringing in milder air. The temperature will climb through the 40s into the 50s by Thursday morning, and it may reach 60° by late in the day on Thursday. Rain will continue through Thursday morning before tapering to showers during the afternoon. Storm rain totals of 1-2″ are likely in Southeastern New England.
The good news in the forecast is the weather will improve late in the workweek, and it looks dry through the weekend. Friday will be partly to mostly sunny with highs in the low to mid 60s. Saturday and Sunday may be a few degrees cooler with partly cloudy skies. A fast-moving system will threaten Southern New England with showers Sunday night into Monday morning.
