Forecast: Sunday The Pick Of The Weekend

If you like the heat and liked Thursday, you will love the weather Friday afternoon. Once again highs will be nearly 15 degrees above average temperatures, approaching 90 degrees. While this isn’t record territory, it is some significant heat.

The sun reaches a point higher in the sky by mid Friday morning, higher than it is in mid-March or Mid-September. This means the ultraviolet light is very strong, so be especially careful if you are outside for a long period time between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

There is a cold front to our west today that will push through New England late tonight and through the first part of Saturday. While there could be a shower as the front passes, most of us won't see any rain.

Saturday starts with this chance of showers and a period of clouds, but sunshine will be the predominant player as the morning moves along. It will be very muggy early, but drying out towards the afternoon.

Look for cooler and dry conditions for Sunday, my pick for the best outdoor day of the weekend. Temperatures will be rise to the lower 80s inland, but a sea breeze will knock temperatures back to the 70s along the shore in the afternoon.

Monday will start sunny, but clouds will increase as another weather system moves closer to southern New England. A period of showers is likely Monday night into Tuesday morning before drier weather returns. If we miss the rain Monday night, we will not have another opportunity for rain for several more days.
