It will be a cold and windy start to the weekend. There should be a decent dose of sunshine, but the temperature will not rebound very much on Saturday. The forecast into next week features relatively mild weather with a chance of late-workweek rain.
Look for partly sunny skies and a cold, gusty wind on Saturday. There will be a 15-30 mph west-northwest breeze. The temperature will start the day between 32-40° before rising into the low to mid 40s during the afternoon. Of course, the wind will make it feel colder. It will be breezy and chilly Saturday night. Lows will be near freezing.
You can expect a sunny start on Sunday. Skies will become partly sunny during the day. The breeze will be lighter (5-15 mph) and highs will be in the low to mid 50s.
Monday may be the nicest day of the next week. Highs will be in the upper 50s to low 60s with a blend of clouds and sunshine.
While the weather will likely be mainly dry into the middle of next week, there is less certainty about how thick the cloud cover will be. Right now, we’ll play it a pessimistically, and call for cloudy skies from late Tuesday into the end of the workweek. Highs will be in the mid to upper 50s on Tuesday with partly cloudy skies.
Low clouds may arrive on a east-southeast breeze Tuesday night. This time of the year, with a low sun angle, clouds can be stubborn during the day. There may be a few showers or mist and drizzle on Wednesday with highs in the low to mid 50s. The generally cloudy and damp weather may persist into Thursday, with steadier rain possible in the afternoon and night. Highs will be in the low 50s.
The early outlook for next Friday is for showers and highs only in the 40s. The weather pattern between Wednesday and Friday is fickle, and subtle changes could make a big difference in the weather for RI and SE MA. Keep an eye on this forecast.
