Forecast: Chilly Early Before Another Sunny, 'Stunning' Fall Day

It’s chilly this morning with a deep frost across the area. Cape Cod also has seen a hard freeze in many areas with the end of the growing season. There are areas still above freezing, like Boston which was around 40.

This afternoon will be another stunning fall day with highs in the 50s and brilliant sunshine. Some of the trees are just showing their best color, and it will be a great afternoon and evening to take some foliage shots.

The remnants of Patricia will move through the area Wednesday overnight with an increase in clouds and the chance of showers by day's end tomorrow. We will definitely not see any wet weather for the morning commute, but could see some showers by the evening commute. The heaviest and steadiest rain will hold off until after the commute is over, however.

Winds will be a factor Wednesday evening, as they increase and gust over 30 miles per hour in many spots and near 50 miles per hour over Cape Cod. The coast as usual will have the highest winds. Wind speeds of this magnitude can cause scattered, but not widespread power issues.

I expect most areas to end up with an inch of rain overnight Wednesday, but some spots could see double that in heavier showers.

Thursday is a spring-like day with highs getting at or above 70 degrees. There might be a shower to start the day, but generally, it’s just dry and breezy. If you are headed to the Patriot’s game temperatures will be in the 50s through the game, falling from 58 at kickoff to 52 at the final whistle.

Halloween is still looking cool, but dry.

Today: Sunny, with a high near 55.

Tonight: Partly cloudy, with a low around 40.

Wednesday: Clouds thicken, mild. Highs near 60 with rain developing late in the day or early evening.

Thursday: Early showers, then breezy and warm. Highs 70-75.

Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 55.

Saturday: Sunny, with a high in the lower 50s.
