Forecast: Another Unseasonably Warm Day

A rather summer-like night gave us the opportunity to enjoy sleeping with the windows open, listen to the sounds of summer and not use the heat Tuesday evening.

Wednesday brings another very warm day for the middle of October with highs between 75 and 80 Wednesday afternoon. There will be some breaks of sunshine, but also periods when it is completely overcast. I am not expecting any shower or rain activity, as that remains well to the west of New England.

Wednesday night continues warm and somewhat muggy with a slight chance of a shower towards dawn.

While there could be some scattered showers Thursday morning, it’s really the homebound commute and during the Patriots games when the rain chance increases. Some of the rain could be quite heavy and accompanied by thunder with gusty winds. It will remain warm and muggy all day with highs in the 70s.

Friday morning brings an end to the showers and a return to sunshine. It’s going to continue to be quite warm with highs once again near 70. The humidity will be gone and winds will be a bit brisk, but overall, it’s going to be a great day.

Saturday is generally dry although there is a slight chance of a pop-up shower late in the day. Most of the day will be sunny and warm, with highs near 70. Sunday is much colder with highs only in the mid 50s. If you are headed to the Head of the Charles Regatta this weekend you’ll want to dress for the warmth on Saturday and the chill on Sunday.

Wednesday: Breeze and warm with clouds and a few periods of sunshine. Highs 75-80.

Wednesday night: Cloudy and mild. Lows in the mid 60s.

Thursday: Cloudy and muggy. Showers becoming more numerous late in the afternoon. Highs in the lower 70s. Heavy rain overnight.

Friday: Mostly sunny and pleasant. Highs 70-74.

Saturday: Mostly sunny, slight risk of a pop-up shower late in the day. Highs near 70.

Sunday: Mostly sunny, though cooler with highs in the mid 50s.
