One of the driest Septembers on record in Southeastern New England ended with a gray and dreary day that featured occasional light showers and drizzle. The first day October looks similar, with a better chance of steadier rain. The day will start and end with gray skies. A persistent northeast breeze will keep the temperature in the upper 50s to low 60s from early in the day into the night. Patchy drizzle and mist is possible when it’s not raining. Showers will be coming and going throughout the day, and rain totals of 0.25-0.5″ are possible in many spots, with a chance of some isolated higher totals.
Showers will continue Wednesday night with temperatures holding steady. After a gray and damp start on Thursday, it will become mostly cloudy with highs in the low to mid 60s. Friday looks like the nicest of the next several days. It will be partly to mostly sunny with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s and a light breeze. Friday night looks mainly clear, with lows in the 40s.
An approaching cold front will bring showers and possibly thunderstorms on Saturday. Right now, it looks like the best chance of rain from midday to mid-evening. Highs will be in the 60s. A dry west-northwest breeze will arrive Saturday night, and the weather looks pleasant and breezy on Sunday. Highs will be in the mid to upper 60s with a decent dose of sun. It will stay dry through Monday before showers threaten again on Tuesday.
