Forecast: Mild, But Cloudy With Showers Approaching

Another day of mild weather with highs reaching the lower 70s at the mildest, with temperatures in the mid and upper 60s over Cape Cod. Clouds will thicken Wednesday, and there will be a band of showers approaching the region in the early afternoon, passing off the coast just before sunset.

Thursday is a great day with plenty of sunshine with dry air and highs typical for late October. Friday is still dry and somewhat seasonable. It will feel colder by the end of the day.

The weekend is going to be cold. There is not any question that it’s going to feel more like Thanksgiving than Halloween this weekend. Highs on Saturday will reach the 40s. On Sunday, temperatures will stay in the 30s over Worcester County and the lower 40s in Boston.

If you are headed to the Patriots game you will need to dress for a chilly game, but I don’t expect any rain or snow.

The question with regard to precipitation comes on Saturday and Saturday night when a storm may come close enough to bring some rain and even interior snow.

It’s still a bit early to know exactly how much, if any, rain we see. Northern New England has the best chance of seeing any snow, but even there, it’s possible the storm will stay off the coast too far to bring anything significant.

Wednesday: Thickening clouds and possibly scattered showers, mainly after noon. Mild with highs between 68-72.

Wednesday night: Scatterned showers ending then clearing. Lows in the 40s.

Thursday: Mostly sunny, with a high between 55-58. Winds from the west around 8 mph.

Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high between 50-55 and cooler later in the day.

Saturday: Raw with a chance of rain.

Sunday: Any precipitation ends followed by nighttime clearing. Chilly. Highs between 38-44.
