October 3 – Facebook Live 6:45 p.m.

Last October went into the records books as one of the warmest on record in Southern New England. It topped the charts in Bridgeport and Hartford, and was the second warmest on record in Providence. This October is off to a warm start, and it looks like (overall) it will stay that way into the middle of the month. 

Thursday will be a mild day. Morning mist and fog will give way to some sunny breaks and highs in the 70s. A passing shower is possible from west to east beginning around sunset and lasting through the evening. I do not expect widespread rain or severe weather. 

Friday and Saturday look dry and seasonably cool. That means highs in the 60s, and temperatures falling into the 60s Friday and Saturday nights. Expect a decent dose of sunshine both days. A warm-up begins sometime between Sunday and Tuesday, and lasts through next workweek. There is still some uncertainty about how quickly the wind will shift from the northeast to the southwest and bring in the warmer air, but it is coming at some point. I would not be at all surprised if there was a day in the 80s in the middle of next week. 

Overnight low temperatures rise from the 40s this weekend to the 50s and even 60s next week. I would not take those A/C units out of the windows just yet. 

It looks rather dry for the next week, for a change. Showers are possible by late next week as a disturbance forms near the Eastern Seaboard. There may be some damp mornings with mist and fog during the warm-up because of the cooling ocean waters and longer nights, but I do not expect steady rain through most or all of next workweek.
