The temperature soared into the low 70s in inland Southern New England on Tuesday. It was much cooler near the coast due to a gusty southerly wind. Clouds streamed in late in the day, and scattered showers are likely Tuesday night. The best chance of rain is between 8 pm – 2 am. It does not look like there will be much heavy rain, but an isolated thunder-shower cannot be ruled out. The temperature will fall into the mid to upper 40s by late at night.
Another disturbance will pin wheel through Southern New England on Wednesday. Pop-up showers and thunder-showers are possible from mid-morning through mid-afternoon in Rhode Island and Eastern Massachusetts. It will not be raining the entire time, and skies will be partly to mostly cloudy. The wind will be active out of the northwest between 15-30 mph. Highs will be in the mid to upper 50s.
The shower threat ends late Wednesday afternoon, and skies will clear Wednesday night. The temperature will drop to near 40 by dawn on Thursday. The weather looks quiet and seasonably cool for the end of the workweek. Thursday will be brisk with highs in the mid to upper 50s under partly to mostly sunny skies. Friday looks mostly sunny and a bit milder, with highs near 60.
A few showers are possible at the start of the weekend Friday night as a front moves through the Northeast. Saturday looks partly cloudy with highs near 60. A second disturbance will move through Saturday night. Right now, there is a better chance of scattered showers in Northern New England than Southern New England. Sunday will be partly to mostly sunny with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s.
As we told Right Weather Pro members in the Long-Range Forecast, the pattern looks unsettled next week, with a few days of wet/cool weather possible.
