From heavy showers to much cooler and windy weather, it has been an active stretch in Southeastern New England for the past few days. The weather in the upcoming week does not look as wild, but it will definitely be cooler than normal (for a change) most of the time. The best chance of rain is early and late in the workweek, with the late-workweek system more likely to bring steady rain than the weak system passing by on Monday. Another round of rain is possible over the weekend.
Monday will be partly cloudy. Highs will be in the mid to upper 50s. A surge of cold weather arrives on a west-northwest breeze Monday night into Tuesday.
Lows will be in the 30s Tuesday morning. Look for a lot of bulky clouds, gusty winds, and highs in the upper 40s to low 50s on Tuesday. The coldest mornings of the workweek will likely be Wednesday and Thursday, with lows in the 30s, and not far from freezing for everyone except the immediate coast. Wednesday afternoon will be cool and dry, with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s. Clouds will increase quickly on Thursday, and rain may arrive by sunset. Highs will be in the low 50s Thursday, but it may take all day to get there.
Rain is likely Thursday night. It could be a decent soaking, with early estimates around 0.5″ in most of the area. The system moves quickly, and dry weather returns on Friday. Highs will be in the mid 50s with a blend of clouds and sun. The normal high is in the upper 50s by the end of the week.
Another fast-moving system may bring showers for part of the weekend. It’s early, but the outlook is for increasing clouds on Saturday with highs in the low 50s. Rain is possible by sunset, and it will likely end by dawn on Sunday. More seasonably cool, dry weather is ahead to round out the weekend. At this point, Halloween looks dry and cool, with temps in the 40s for Trick or Treating, but there’s a long way to go…
