Spot Showers Possible on Friday

Thursday was cooler and cloudier than the past few days in most of Southeastern New England. Showers stayed away from Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts, but the clouds kept the temperature in the 50s to low 60s in RI. It reached the mid to upper 60s with more sunshine in interior Southeastern Massachusetts.

A warm front will slowly advance through the Northeast on Friday. Clouds will thicken again Thursday night, and showers are possible late at night and Friday morning. There may be some patchy fog, especially near the coast. Lows will be near 50, and the temperature will stay in the low to mid 50s Friday morning with thicker clouds and the threat of showers. The shower threat diminishes in the afternoon, but there may not be much sunshine. It will be a relatively cool day with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s

Tricky Forecast for Saturday

Saturday will start with clouds and fog, but a developing southwest wind may be enough to scour out the low clouds and allow for some sunshine that would temperature soaring into the 60s and 70s. It’s a close call between breaking out into sunshine and the clouds persisting for most of the day. If the sun does not break through, highs will only be in the upper 50s to low 60s. Right now, we’re leaning toward a more optimistic forecast for the afternoon, with some sunshine and highs in the 60s at the coast, and in the low 70s inland.

A few showers or thunderstorms are possible Saturday evening as a cold front passes through Southern New England. Mother’s Day is shaping up to be gorgeous. It will be mostly sunny with highs in the low to mid 70s inland, and in the upper 60s to low 70s near the coast. It looks like it will stay warm through at least Monday. Highs will be in the 70s inland.

The forecast for the middle of next week is questionable. The position of cold front is critical in determining how warm it will be in Southeastern New England. If the cold front stays well north of the area, then it will be in the 70s, and possibly 80s. If the warm front passes through, then we are looking at temperatures in the 50s and 60s. At this point, it’s too early to say exactly where that front will be. We’ll continue to keep you updated.
