Forecast: A Short Break From The Cold This Week

This article is more than 1 year old.

The weekend nor'easter brought plenty of rain and wind to the region and we didn't see much in the way of sunshine, even after the storm went up into Canada. Already, a new weather system is bringing showers to the region this morning, and although they will end quite early, we're not going to see much clearing today. I can't rule out a quick sprinkle or shower this afternoon but generally it's a drier second half of your Monday.

Eventually high pressure will build into the region and sunshine returns for Tuesday and Wednesday with a milder temperature pattern. Temperatures tomorrow should get well into the 50s and then we'll be into the 60s or even near 70 by Thursday.

The dry pattern doesn't last very long, as by Friday more showers are going to push into New England and some of these could have some heavier downpours. In addition to the shower activity, the air will become a bit humid. Yes — it will be humid in early November.

We might as well start talking about the weekend, as it's only five days away. Provided our Friday system keeps on moving, we should clear out for early Saturday and all of the day on Sunday.

The past eight days have featured cooler-than-average temperatures and this is the longest stretch of below-normal temperatures we've seen since the middle of April. I do expect a milder trend for the first two weeks of November, so although some mornings will be chilly, I actually think it will feel quite comfortable.
