October 31 – Update

Mild weather is returning to Southern New England. Unfortunately, it’s also bringing some rain for the end of the workweek and start of the weekend. A few showers are possible on Thursday, but it’s not a washout. Most of the day should be dry with temperatures climbing out of the 40s at dawn and reaching the 60s in the afternoon. The best chance of showers is away from the coast, and it looks like all of CT, RI, and SE MA will get less than 0.15″ of rain on Thursday. 

It stays damp and mild Thursday night into Friday morning. Expect patchy fog, drizzle, mist and passing showers. Temps will stay in the 50s. Friday will be a showery day. It will not rain all day, but there is a better chance of passing showers on Friday compared to Thursday. Expect it to be breezy to windy near the coast with temps in the 60s throughout Southern New England. 

Friday looks showery, but not a complete washout

The best chance of steady rain in the next few days is Friday night into Saturday morning. The rain could linger for a few hours on Saturday morning, especially from Eastern CT through RI and Southeastern MA. It should gradually dry out from midday through the afternoon. Expect a gusty northwest wind to take over for late Saturday. Before the wind brings in cooler air, the high temperature will be above 60 again on Saturday. It will fall all the way to the upper 30s by dawn on Sunday. Don’t forget to set your clocks back before going to bed on Saturday. The sun sets around 4:40 pm on Sunday. 

The ground is already pretty soft from recent rainy months, and there’s another 1-2+” of rain on the way in the next few days

Look for some sunshine on Sunday, and highs will reach the low 50s. Clouds may stream in before sunset, but, overall, it should be a pretty nice day. Monday looks like a dry and seasonably cool day with highs in the low to mid 50s. I expect more showers and mild temperatures in the middle of next week. 

It’s very early, but there are some signs of stormy weather along the Eastern Seaboard late next week. I’m not ready to sound the alarm for an offshore storm, but it bears watching. At this time of the year, anything that forms needs to be watched for both rain and snow. I’ll keep you posted!
