Forecast: What Weather For Watching Hometown Wonders And Walking While Wearing Costumes

This article is more than 1 year old.

Plenty of sunshine greeted all of us on Tuesday and this will continue today as well, as we close out the month of October. Temperatures this afternoon will rebound from their chilly start and get near or above 50.

The Red Sox parade starts at 11 a.m., and the temperature will be approaching 47 at that point. It will go even higher during the day, with temperatures reaching towards 54 in the afternoon right about average for this time of year.

A warm front is pushing northward overnight tonight and will keep temperatures from falling very much. This means as you're taking the kids out for trick-or-treating, readings will stay above 50 degrees. This will allow those costumes to shine uncovered by heavy coats or umbrellas.

Thursday brings more in the way of cloudiness, but despite this, temperatures will still reach the low or even mid-60s over southern areas. North of the Mass Pike will be a bit cooler, in the 50s. I can't rule out of shower but most of the day is dry.

An area of larger showers moves into the region on Friday with even some heavy downpours. The air will feel somewhat humid for early November.

This weather system will pass east of New England on Saturday and the rain will come to an end followed by partial clearing. The exact timing will depend on whether we see any showers for those early field games Saturday morning.

Sunday, sunshine returns in earnest with seasonable temperatures.
