First Cold Snap of the Season

The coldest weather of the young fall season is heading for Southeastern New England this weekend into early next week. A freeze is likely inland, and it may reach 32° near the coast, too.

The cold air starts to invade with highs only in the low to mid 50s under partly cloudy skies. It will feel cooler because of a 10-25 mph northwest breeze. Skies will clear Saturday night, and the wind will stay active. The temperature will tumble into the 30s overnight. Lows will be near or below freezing inland, and near or slightly above freezing near the coast. Frost is unlikely because there will be a breeze all night.

It looks mostly sunny, but unseasonably cool on Sunday. Highs will be in the upper 40s to low 50s with a 10-15 mph northwest wind. Clear skies Sunday night combined with a relaxing wind will lead to low temperatures in the upper 20s to low 30s inland, and low 30s at the coast. If the wind dies completely, frost is possible, even in areas that don’t make it to 32°

After a cold start, we’ll see plenty of sunshine. Highs will only be near 50. Monday night looks chilly, with lows in the 30s. It will not be as cold as Sunday night.

Partly cloudy skies and a developing west-southwest breeze will yield high temperatures in the upper 50s to low 60s. It will not be too cool Tuesday night, with lows in the 40s.

It looks like the warmest day of the week with highs in the mid to upper 60s. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny.

The forecast is somewhat uncertain for Thursday due to the timing of a cold front that may bring cooler weather. If it moves through the afternoon or evening, the high temperature will be in the mid to upper 60s. If it moves through early in the day, the high will be closer to 60. It will be in the 50s on Friday.
