Forecast: Some Early Showers, Then Breaks Of Sunshine

A dying front is bringing some showers to southern New England, but not everyone is seeing them, and what rain is falling is light. There won’t be much sunshine this morning even if it’s not very wet. The clouds did keep it from getting as cold last night, so most of us are starting in the 50s today as opposed to the lower 40s yesterday.

As the front pushes off the coast, drier air will cause the clouds to dissipate later this afternoon, and it’s likely going to be a nice sunset. Highs today will be in the upper 60s to near 70.

Since we aren’t getting much rain you will still need to continue to water lawns and any gardens, especially with newly planted things for the foreseeable future.

If you like dry and sunny weather — and most of us do — the pattern continues into the weekend. As high pressure builds in the next couple of days the weather will be ideal. I expect a lot of sunshine both tomorrow and Thursday with highs in the upper 60s. You really couldn’t ask for better weather as we move through the second half of September.

Friday a cool shot of air from central Canada keeps afternoon readings much cooler only in the lower and middle 60s at best. This cool weather won’t last long however as milder air with more sunshine takes us into the weekend.

The lack of rain is a problem for sure, but the upside is day after day of sunny, dry weather. Have a great Tuesday.

Tuesday: A few morning showers but otherwise clouds give way to some breaks of sunshine later in the day. Highs near 70.

Tuesday night: Early clouds, then turning clear and chilly. Lows in the upper 40s.

Wednesday: Sunny and pleasant with highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

Thursday: Sunny with highs in the upper 60s.

Friday: Sunny and cooler with highs of 60 to 64.

Saturday: Mostly sunny and pleasant with highs of 65 to 69.
