Forecast: Abundant Sunshine, Light Winds, Cool Temperatures

A chilly morning for much of New England as high pressure remains in control with Canadian origins. This weather system is the reason it was so cool over the weekend and why temperatures continue to be a bit below average today. While it's feeling like fall, there will be abundant sunshine and light winds.

Later tonight a cold front will push into the area. This front is going to bring a good chance of showers toward morning and right now the Tuesday morning commute could be wet.

Tuesday will not be a washout, but there will be a period of showers in the first half of the morning. Most areas will see a tenth to a quarter of an inch of water which is greatly needed in many areas.

After the rain ends, clearing will take place and the sun will be back for the afternoon. The middle of the week looks dry and cool with abundant sunshine. Temperatures will be chilly each morning and the coolness will peak at the end of the week when some interior towns could see readings in the 30s. I am not expecting a widespread frost however.

The weekend is setting up to be spectacular with abundant sunshine and pleasant temperatures. While the month started out on a summery note, since that first week of heat of and humidity it's certainly been quite fall-like. Have a great week.

Monday: Sunny with a high in the mid to upper 60s. Light and variable wind.

Monday night: Cool with more clouds. Lows in the upper 40s to lower 50s.

Tuesday: Morning showers then clearing and pleasant. Highs in the mid to upper 60s.

Wednesday: Sunny with a high near 70.

Thursday: Mostly sunny with highs in the upper 60s.

Friday: Sunny with a high in the mid 60s.
