Do not expect the record-breaking warmth to last in Southeastern New England. It made it into the 60s in many spots on Thursday afternoon! A cold front moves through Thursday night, and chilly weather follows from Friday afternoon through most of the weekend.
The cold air lags behind the front, and it will be a gradual process getting it into Southeastern New England. Expect temperatures in the 40s through midday Friday before the northwest wind ushers in colder weather by Friday evening. The wind will stay active at night, and wind chills will be in the teens by late in the evening. We’ll have dry skies Friday and Friday night.
The low temperature Saturday morning will be in the teens to near 20. It will only be in the upper 20s to low 30s Saturday afternoon with partly sunny skies. It looks like a storm system south of New England will spare RI and SE MA any snow Saturday night. Expect dry and cold weather for the Patriots game at Gillette. Temps will be in the low 20s.
Sunday starts with lows near 20, and it will bounce back into the upper 30s with some sunshine in the afternoon. Relatively quiet weather continues into early next week. Monday and Tuesday look dry and relatively warm. Highs will be in the low to mid 40s.
The weather pattern will be unsettled late next workweek. Showers are possible Wednesday through early Friday, but it does not look like a total washout. It will be unseasonably mild with temps ranging from the 40s to low 50s.
