Forecast: Rain Moves Out This Morning, And A Very Warm Afternoon

You likely notice a lot of warmth and even humidity this morning. Any showers remaining, even the heavy downpours, will be pushing offshore this morning. Winds continue to be brisk and strongest over coastal areas. This leaves a drier, but very warm afternoon. Temperatures won’t reach record highs, but with readings in the 70s it’s going to feel like spring. Watch out for wet leaves this morning on the roads.

Most areas have seen some significant rain, but we remain up to 20 percent below average. There might be more shower activity later next week, but until then it’s mostly dry after today’s showers.

Of course it is the final few days of October so the warmth won’t last. By tomorrow highs will be in the 50s and the air will have that crisp feel once again.

Tonight’s Patriots football game in Foxborough will be played with dry conditions and mild air. It will turn chillier as the game progresses, but not cold by October standards.

Friday and the weekend are looking quiet in the weather department. A moderating trend means temperatures return back to the 60s next week as the cold air in Canada stays north and west of New England.

If you are taking the kids (or yourself) out for Halloween you can expect dry weather. It will around 50 at sunset, the last daylight savings sunset of the year, and in the lower 40s by 10 p.m. Don’t forget to set the clocks back one hour Saturday night as you go to sleep. Sure the sun will set before 5 p.m. on Sunday, but at least we have a month of the mornings being lighter.

Today: Windy with showers and even a thunderstorm this morning then partial clearing and warm. Highs 70-75.

Tonight: Mostly clear, with a low around 40. Gusty winds.

Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high in the mid 50s. Breezy.

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

Sunday: Partly sunny, with a high in the upper 50s.

Monday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 60.
