Forecast: Cloudy With Chance Of Showers

While there are showers in the forecast today, most of us will remain dry. The best chance of showers comes this morning into early afternoon. Any showers that do occur should be quick but there could be gusty winds and also a rumble of thunder with some heavier downpours.  The threat of showers continues through the overnight hours and into early Wednesday before clearing moves into the areas for the second half of the day.

Temperatures both today and tomorrow will be unseasonably mild reaching the upper 60s to lower 70s. It will even feel a bit humid in the afternoon as a southerly breeze ahead of a cold front moves somewhat tropical air northward

I am not expecting much sunshine today, but there is the chance for some breaks of sun at times.

You’ll notice a good clearing trend tomorrow afternoon after the morning showers.  The morning commute could be impacted by the rain tomorrow so you might want to plan on leaving a bit early.

Thursday brings sunshine and dry Canadian air to southern New England. This means highs will be slightly under average and there will be abundant sunshine. Another fast moving system puts back rain into the forecast Friday, mostly south of Boston. This system exits the areas for the weekend with sunshine and seasonably cool readings.

Foliage viewing should be terrific both Saturday and Sunday.

Tuesday: Lots of clouds. A small chance of showers or thunderstorms, mostly in the first half of the day. Highs in the upper 60s to around 70.

Tuesday night: A period or two of showers with a thunderstorm late at night. It will be mild with lows in the upper 50s.

Wednesday: Morning showers, then clearing in the afternoon. Highs around 70.

Thursday: Sunny and cooler with highs nearing 60.

Friday: Lots of clouds with a period of rain possible (mostly to the south). Highs of 55 to 60.

Saturday: Mostly sunny with a high in the upper 50s to near 60.
