The storm system bringing cold rain to most of Southeastern New England will be bothersome on Wednesday as it slowly drifts out to sea. Snowflakes may mix with the raindrops inland, but for most of RI and SE MA it will be rain showers on Wednesday. When it’s not raining, you can expect drizzle and mist. Temperatures will hover between the mid 30s and low 40s.
Sun returns on Thursday, and it will be mild with highs in the mid to upper 40s. Dry weather continues on Friday. Highs will be in the low to mid 40s with an onshore breeze and more clouds in the afternoon. A storm system will have a tough time bringing showers to RI or SE MA Saturday morning, and dry weather likely continues through the weekend.
Highs will be in the mid to upper 40s on Saturday. It will be at least a few degrees cooler on Sunday as the wind shifts to the northeast. Low clouds may arrive during the day, and that would keep the temperature from reaching 40. At this point, it looks dry in Foxborough for the AFC Championship game. Expect temps in the low to mid 30s. Rain is unlikely, but in a worst-case scenario there could be drizzle or mist.
Monday looks mostly cloudy, but relatively mild. Highs will be near 40. Rain is likely in the middle of next week as a slow-moving storm arrives in the Northeast. Early projections show potential for more than an inch of rain in Southeastern New England. It may also become quite windy near the coast. There is no sign of cold weather through the end of next workweek.
