Well, that was more like it…sunshine and mild temps in the 50s. But at this time, clouds are advancing in as a storm system slides south of us over the next 24 hours. Clouds will thicken up early tomorrow morning and the northern edge of the precip will graze SE MA mid-morning through mid-afternoon with steady but mostly light rain. The storm will pull away quickly and sun will push in from NW to SE during the afternoon. With the sun, out ahead of a coldfront, temps will rise quickly through the 50s and even close to 60 near the NH border in the afternoon…only 40s for SE MA with the rain and lingering cloud cover. Later in the evening, a coldfront will slip through with a few spotty showers and brisk conditions overnight Friday and to start the weekend. In the end, Saturday will be a great day, nearly 100% sunshine, temps will climb to near 50 and after the wind settles down it will be great to be outdoors.
A few clouds will work in on Sunday as a warmfront works into New England…it should get through by the afternoon with increasing amounts of sunshine and highs closing in on 60…except close to the coast. The warm airmass will extend its stay into Monday with partly sunny skies and highs in the mid 60s! Monday evening a coldfront will approach with some showers then cooler air will filter in by Tuesday morning and temps will likely sit in the 40s through the middle of next week. There are some timing and placement issues regarding the front and the colder air but at this time I’d hedge on the colder air winning out…I hope I’m wrong!
