The quiet weather will prevail today. A low pressure system affecting the Great Lakes region this morning will make its mark in the form of cloud cover this afternoon. Then, scattered showers will be possible for our coverage areas located far west and south, including Worcester. A light WNW wind (feeble seabreeze this afternoon) will allow for mild high temperatures in the lower and middle 60s.
This chance of showers for areas south and west will continue through midday Wednesday. Then, clouds will slowly thin out from north to south late on Wednesday. Highs will only reach 55-60F due to the cloud cover and light onshore breeze.
Thursday and Friday will be gorgeous! Thursday will be sunny with highs in the lower 60s while Friday will be flirting with 70F (cooler coast).
This last weekend of October will be rather quiet as well. Saturday will be partly cloudy with highs in the middle 60s (cooler coast). Sunday will be cloudier and cooler with highs touching upon 60F.
Tropical Update: Then, it’ll be all eyes on Sandy. The current GFSx long-range track shows Sandy staying far offshore before being ‘swallowed’ westward (retrograding) early next week. This would bring us rainfall on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The EURO shows Sandy making a much more significant impact with a ‘hit’ on Monday night/early Tuesday near Connecticut/NYC. We will continue to follow the latest track/forecast closely.
