Forecast: 'Enjoy The Warmth': There Won't Be Many More Days Like This 'Til Spring

This article is more than 2 years old.

In spite of all the sunshine on Tuesday it never really got very warm.

The temperature around 2:30 p.m. reached 51 degrees, which is 5 degrees below average and 11 under last year on the same day. Game 6 of the World Series was played in Cleveland last evening in summer warmth, with temperatures near 80 degrees for the start of the game.

A piece of that warmth is headed to southern New England today with temperatures getting well into the 60s. If we see enough sunshine, it's not impossible some places reach 70 degrees. The mild air will hang in overnight, with lows only in the lower 50s. You can plan on keeping the windows open!

Tomorrow brings more clouds, and although the air will still be mild, I think the added wind will make it feel cooler than it really will be. Expect actual readings in the 60s.

We could get by the entire day without any rain, but the odds of showers will be increasing throughout the afternoon and evening. A fairly potent frontal system will cross the area overnight Thursday and with it showers and even thunderstorms are possible. Winds could be gusty in any storms.

It will feel mild the first half of the night before the front. By morning cooler air will filter into the region, and it's back to the crisp November stuff.

We are still losing daylight quite rapidly, heading toward the least amount of daylight in a mere six weeks. During that time, it's likely we will see our first really cold nights and accumulating snow.

It's coming folks. Enjoy the warmth while you can.
