Southeastern New England is back into a dry weather pattern after a wet October. There has been little rain in RI in the first week of November, and not much rain is expected through the middle of the month.
Variable temperatures are likely in the next week, with the warmest conditions in the middle of this week, and the coldest weather likely on Saturday. A seasonably cool Monday will be followed by partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid 50s to low 60s on Tuesday. It will not be too cool Tuesday night, with lows in the 40s.
Wednesday looks relatively warm with increasing clouds, and highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. A line of showers will move across New England from west to east during the afternoon. Rain may hold off until sunset in RI and SE MA, and any showers will be gone before dawn on Thursday. Less than 0.25″ of rain is expected.
Thursday and Friday will be typical mid-November days, with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s to low 40s. Both days look partly sunny. We’ll be watching the timing of a cold front that will bring windy and cold weather early in the weekend. The front may pass around midday on Friday, but the cold/windy weather may not arrive until Friday night.
Saturday will feature plenty of clouds, possibly some flurries, and temperatures hovering in the mid 30s to low 40s for most of the day. A 15-35 mph northwest wind will make it feel more like the 20s to low 30s. Saturday night will be cold, with lows in the 20s to near freezing. After a chilly start, Sunday will get a bit warmer, with highs closer to 50 by the middle of the afternoon.
Expect dry and seasonable weather early next week, with a chance of rain by the middle of the week. A slow-moving storm in the Eastern United States could bring steady rain, but it’s too early to say for sure.
