What’s left of Tropical Storm Jose will still be spinning southeast of Nantucket, but it will be losing its grip on the weather in Rhode Island. Expect a gusty northerly breeze with comfortable temperatures in the low to mid 60s. The dew point will be near 60°. The western edge of Jose’s clouds will be nearby, and it’s a close call between damp conditions and brighter skies. Steady rain is not expected, but there may be some patchy mist/drizzle around dawn. The trend is for clouds to move away during the morning.
