Forecast: A Few Showers This Weekend, But Mostly Dry

I hope you agree the past two days have been nothing short of stunning. I know we’d all like the weather to continue through the weekend, but it’s not in the cards this time. However, if you are expecting a washout, think again, most of the weekend will actually be dry and the bulk of the showers that fall will do so at night.

There are two weather systems affecting New England over the next three days. The first brings some showers this evening. The best chance of the rain is after 5 p.m., but before 11 p.m. Remember, showers generally move west to east so those of you in the western part of New England will see the showers begin earlier and end earlier.

Saturday is a nice day overall. I expect a lot of sunshine and a great day to be outside, take a run, play golf, watch the kids at their game or just do some gardening. There is going to be a cold front moving through late Saturday in the afternoon and evening along with another round of some showers. The best chance of showers will be from about 8 p.m. until 1 a.m. on Sunday. A similar window to the ones overnight, but just a bit later.

If there is a leftover shower Sunday they will end by 7 a.m. and then it’s back to a blend of clouds and sunshine. The big change Sunday is we will see much cooler air. After the lower 70s of today and tomorrow, it’s back to the 50s for Sunday. Have a great weekend!
