Dry Friday; Cool Showers Saturday

Friday will start with mainly clear skies and temperatures in the 40s. Clouds will gradually increase during the day, but it will stay dry. It will be a bit cooler than Thursday, with highs in the low 60s. The wind will be lighter than Thursday, with a 5-10 mph westerly breeze. Clouds will thicken Friday night, and rain showers will develop, especially near the coast, before dawn on Saturday. Lows will be in the low 50s.

Showers, and possibly steady rain, are likely Saturday morning as a storm system scoots south of Southern New England. The best chance of steady, moderate rain is near the coast. At this point, it looks like the rain will end in the early afternoon, but there will not be much of a warm-up, with highs most likely not reaching 60 with lingering clouds through most of the day. There will be a 5-15 mph cool north-northeast breeze.

High pressure will arrive Saturday night, and the temperature will drop through the 40s with clearing skies. Lows will be near 40 in the countryside, and in the low to mid 40s in the cities and near the coast. Sunday afternoon looks mostly sunny and pleasant. Highs will be near 60 with a diminishing northeast breeze.

Milder weather will return early next week, and there could be scattered showers Monday afternoon as the humidity starts to increase. Lows will be in the 40s early Monday, and highs will be in the low to mid 60s with a developing southerly breeze. Tuesday looks mainly dry and mild, especially inland. Lows will be in the upper 50s to low 60s, and highs will be in the low to mid 70s inland, and 60s near the coast with a gusty southerly wind.

There is a good chance of showers in the middle of next week as a strong upper air storm system moves into the Northeast. It’s a bit early to say if the rain will arrive Wednesday or Thursday, but you can count on some wet weather on either or both of those days.
