October 2nd PM Update

Showers and thunderstorms will roll through Southern New England overnight. Rain should be out of the picture by around dawn on Wednesday, but not before some towns get 0.75-1.5″ rain in locally heavy downpours. Because of the showery nature of the rain, there will likely be wide range of rain totals throughout Connecticut, Rhode Island, and eastern Massachusetts. Some towns may not get 0.1″. 

Wednesday will become partly cloudy with a slight chance of a shower in Eastern CT, RI or Southeastern Massachusetts. I do not expect widespread rain. For most, it will be a pretty nice day with highs in the low to mid 70s depending on how much sun gets through the clouds. Thursday looks relatively warm, too, with highs not too far from 80 inland. 

Thursday Afternoon Temperature Forecast

Clouds increase late Thursday as a cold front approaches from the west. A passing shower or t-storm is possible Thursday night. I do not expect widespread rain, and there’s a reasonable chance most towns will stay dry. Friday and Saturday will feel more like early October, with highs in the 60s. A northeast breeze during the day on Friday will diminish overnight, and that sets us up for a cool night under clear skies. Lows inland will be in the low 40s, and it will be in the mid to upper 40s near the coast. 

The Columbus Day weekend looks good. After highs in the 60s on Saturday, it will jump into the 70s to near 80 both Sunday and Monday. Both days will feature a decent dose of sunshine. 

The unseasonable warmth lasts through the middle of next week with dry skies likely hanging on through at least Wednesday. Normal highs are in the mid 60s, and it will probably be 10-15 degrees warmer than that. It will also be very mild at night, with lows in the upper 50s to mid 60s. Showers are possible by late next week as a cold front arrives from the west.
