October 17th Update

A relatively warm and dry month of November will take a colder turn this weekend into the Thanksgiving holiday. There is not a lot of precipitation ahead in the next week, and the month will very likely end much drier than normal in Southeastern New England.

Highs will be in the mid 50s to near 60 Friday and Saturday in Rhode Island. It looks cooler in SE MA because of some clouds and a northeast breeze from an offshore storm.

A strong cold front moves through early Sunday with a few showers and colder weather for Sunday afternoon and most of next week. The best chance of rain is before dawn on Sunday, but a few showers may linger in the morning. It will be a blustery day, with temps reaching the mid 40s then falling during the afternoon.

Monday and Tuesday look chilly, with highs only near 40 and wind chills closer to 30. A few flurries are possible on Monday. Winds will gust over 30 mph on Monday, and in the 20-30 mph range on Tuesday. Lows will be in the 20s to low 30s. Skies will be brighter on Tuesday than on Monday.

Wednesday looks quiet and cool, with highs in the 40s. Sunshine will give way to clouds. The outlook for Thanksgiving includes a lot of clouds and possibly showers. Highs will be in the mid to upper 40s. At this point, Thanksgiving does not look like a washout, but the pattern in the Northeast bears watching. Some models predict steady rain on Turkey Day. It looks dry for Black Friday, but it’s still early…
