Wednesday was a delightful day with sunshine and an afternoon sea breeze. The temperature rose to near 70 inland. It was closer to 60 near the coast with an onshore breeze. Some clouds will stream into Southern New England Wednesday night, and rain showers are possible by dawn – primarily in CT. The best chance of showers on Thursday is in CT and in the morning. It will be a cooler day inland with more clouds than Wednesday, and highs in the low 60s away from the coast. The temperature will struggle to get above 60 near the coast because of an onshore breeze.
A warm front will continue struggling to advance past Southern New England on Friday. As a result, there will most likely be plenty of clouds, and the chance of showers – especially from early to mid-morning. It will be relatively cool, with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s and mostly cloudy skies.
The Mother’s Day weekend may not be completely dry, but, for the most part it looks decent. Saturday will begin with gray skies, but the sun may break through the clouds in the afternoon. It could be damp in the morning. Highs will be in the 60s near the coast, and, if the sun breaks through soon enough, in the low 70s inland. There is a late-day and/or evening shower and thunderstorm threat as a cold front passes.
The air behind the cold front will not be very cool, and Sunday looks great. It will become mostly sunny and warm. Highs may reach the mid 70s inland, and it will be well into the 60s near the coast because of a westerly breeze. The fine, warm weather will stick around into early next week. Highs may be in the 70s on Monday and Tuesday before clouds and showers threaten in the mid to late workweek.
