Forecast: Drier Weather, But Chilly

This article is more than 1 year old.

The rain of yesterday is over and now we're looking at three dry days ahead. Temperatures are not going to be very mild, but without the rain, it will feel a lot better than it has.

It's worth mentioning that all the rain has elevated this fall into the top couple of spots for many areas. Meteorological fall takes place from September through November and at Blue Hills, this will be the wettest on record. Providence and Worcester will record their second wettest fall on record. Boston will end up in fourth place.

Thursday and Friday feature plenty of sunshine and seasonably chilly temperatures.

A new storm system is going to move into the area Saturday night and Sunday, with more rain. It's not looking to be a major storm. I'm not sure of its exactly arrive on Saturday night. In a day or so, we'll have a better idea.

Sunday looks like a damp day with more rain. I generally expect a quarter to three quarters of an inch of additional rainfall.

Temperatures will be quite mild for this system and we may get 50 on Sunday and into the 50s on Monday.

In spite of all the snow northern New England has seen over the past few weeks, I don't see any snow in our forecast for the foreseeable future.
