Forecast: After Cool Morning, Sun Brings Warmth

A cold start to our Monday sees some spots in the 30s, but most are in the 40s. The good news is there will be a lot of sunshine today and temperatures will recover nicely by 10 or 11 a.m. I expect highs to be in the mid 60s this afternoon — a great one to take lunch outside.

As the high moves east a southerly flow of air will keep it milder and a bit cloudier tonight. Lows will be in the 50s. I am not expecting much in the way of showers tomorrow morning, but there will be a lot of clouds. As the morning turns to afternoon the risk of showers increases and there could even be a rumble of thunder.

Highs tomorrow will be above average for a change reaching the lower 70s. Since there won’t be much sunshine, it won’t feel that mild. At least we won’t have to worry about solar glare.

The chance of showers continues into early Wednesday, I am not expecting much in the way of rain, but just enough to wet roads and perhaps create a few puddles.

Thursday sees a return to sunshine and cooler temperatures. Highs will be in the lower 60s. The sunshine is short-lived, however, as another system passes to our south Friday. I’ll forecast a lot of clouds and the risk of showers over Cape Cod, but this forecast is likely going to change a few times this week.

Provided this system exits the area our weekend will be dry and cool. If the system lingers or moves further north then we could see a wetter and cloudier weekend. It’s important to check the forecast throughout the week for the Columbus Day weekend.

Have a great day.

Monday: Sunny and seasonable with highs in the mid 60s.

Monday night: A few clouds. Otherwise patchy fog by morning. Not as cool with lows of 50 to 55.

Tuesday: Lots of clouds and milder. A few showers or even a thunderstorm in the afternoon.

Wednesday: A morning shower — otherwise a blend of clouds and sunshine. Highs around 70.

Thursday: Sunny with a high in the low 60s.

Friday: Mostly cloudy with highs in the lower 60s.
