Forecast: Sunny Day But Chilly Night With Lows In 40s

The holiday weekend is just about here and the weather looks to be mostly cooperating.

All week I’ve been talking about the storm passing close to southern New England for Saturday. This system will pass close enough to bring a period of showers to coastal Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts Saturday morning and clouds to much of the rest of the area. The good news is the rain will be light, and I am not expecting it to push very far north. Boston might not see any rain at all or just a few hours with a light shower.

Temperatures will be cool Saturday with highs only in the 50s. Sunday and Monday bring more sunshine and seasonable temperature readings. The sun goes down around 6 p.m., so you can still get some late day activities completed. Sunday is a better day with sunshine for everyone with highs reach near 60 degrees.

Monday gets a bit milder and there could be a few clouds showing up mixing with the sunshine as highs reach the lower 60s.

As we all head back to school and work on Tuesday even warmer air rides north and it’s going to hit 70 again! I love 70 plus degree days in a post Columbus Day season. They are a treat because we all know they are so limited.

So enjoy the sunshine Friday, it will be bright and beautiful as high pressure remains firmly entrenched across the area. If you are headed to your favorite spot this weekend, enjoy it!

Today: Sunny with highs in the lower 60s.

Over night: Chilly with a rain shower towards dawn with lows in the 40s.

Saturday: Some morning showers, otherwise clouds and cool with highs in the 50s.

Sunday: Sunny with a high in the upper 50s to near 60s.

Columbus Day: Partly sunny with a high near 62.

Tuesday: Partly sunny with a high near 70.
