Forecast: Spring Chill To Return As Showers Scatter New England

This article is more than 7 years old.

Warmer air is going to surge into New England today on a brisk westerly wind pushing the cool marine conditions out to sea for 24 hours. Don't get too comfortable with the summer-like readings as it's back to the chilly spring air tomorrow.

As a warm front pushes through this morning, a few showers will accompany it. These showers won't last and by the afternoon I expect a blend of clouds and sunshine. Temperatures will hit the 80s in most places. Even much of Cape Cod will make it into the 70s.

Overnight will be mild, but not humid so I don't expect it to be uncomfortable for sleeping.

Tomorrow will start mild. When you step outside early it will feel like it's going to be a warm summer day. However, cool air from the ocean will be quickly pushing south and west. While it might reach the upper 60s and lower 70s before 10 a.m., by noon it will be getting chillier.

The cool air moves westward all afternoon. Cape Ann will feel the chill first with areas west of Worcester staying mild the longest.

The rest of the week brings seasonably cool conditions with a few showers and periods of sunshine.

Monday: A few showers this morning with a tendency for increasingly sunny skies this afternoon. Turning warm and breezy. Highs 80-85 but cooler on Cape Cod.

Monday night: Mostly cloudy, not so cool. Lows 60-64.

Tuesday: Any showers end during the evening. Cool and damp. Lows in the upper 40s to lower 50s.

Wednesday: Cool and raw, some drizzle or showers in the morning. Highs in the 50s.

Thursday: Mostly sunny and pleasant. Highs around 65F.

Friday: Variable clouds, a few showers possible. Highs in the 60s.
