October 24 – PM Update

There will be a chill in the air for the rest of the workweek. Thursday looks bright and cool, with highs in the mid to upper 40s after morning lows in the 30s. It will be a breezy day with mostly sunny skies. Expect northwest winds 10-25 mph. The temperature will dip to near freezing by dawn on Friday. 

Clouds roll in Friday afternoon. It will still be on the cool side with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s. It likely stays dry through Friday evening. A storm brings rain to Southern New England late Friday night into Saturday. The wind will increase out of the east-northeast, and it may gust over 45 mph near the coast. Inland areas will probably see 30-40 mph gusts. The strongest winds are likely on Saturday on Cape Cod and the islands. Coastal Connecticut will also see strong gusts in the 40-50 mph range. That’s enough to down some branches and possibly cause isolated power outages. 

The heaviest rain is likely late Friday night into midday Saturday. Southern New England will receive between 0.75-1.5″ rain through Saturday night. The timing of the rain is still questionable, and it could shift by 6 hours earlier or later as the storm develops on Friday. I will continue to nail down the forecast details. 

The early, early outlook for Halloween is for dry and chilly weather – upper 30s to low 40s for trick or treating. Still a ways to go with that forecast, though.
