Models have had a difficult time thus far nailing down a track for this one, but at this point I see two potential scenarios for Saturday.
After midnight towards daybreak I expect the rain to become most steady with the warm front directly over southern New England at the crack of dawn. Morning showers will linger through the late morning along the coast. Showers will be mainly over by afternoon. NNW winds will lock in low clouds and a cool feel especially north and NW of Boston where highs will only be in the 30’s and Lwr 40’s. South of Boston highs will climb into the mid -upper 40’s with the passage of the warm front in the afternoon.

Cold air left over from Friday & Saturday’s cold remains firmly in place Sunday morning. Spotty freezing drizzle moved through overnight forming a light glaze on untreated surfaces. A warm front is stationed along our south coast. Dense […]
Early fog and spotty black ice for early shoppers with low visibility across many low lying areas in central and southern New England. Morning fog will be lifting giving way to sunshine. Clouds may linger a little longer in […]
Steady Showers are being directed up the CT river valley for the morning hours with lighter showers across eastern MA. By afternoon, the steady showers in the west will begin to shift eastward for the afternoon and evening.
High pressure is parked off the coast today providing abundant sunshine, sparkling blue skies and a very pleasant fall feel. Light winds from the SE will keep it slightly cooler at the coast this afternoon as most areas will climb to 60-65. A beautiful seasonal airmass for this time of year.
Today, the feel of fall returns with a wind shift back to the NW. Early morning showers along with the front have pushed of the coast with rapidly clearing skies following in for the morning hours into the afternoon as skies.Skies will become mostly sunny with a chilly breeze from Canada which will help to keep temps about 15-20 degrees cooler than yesterday…so don’t forget the warmer clothes.
A widespread killing freeze is likely overnight with many areas spending a few hours in the 20’s around dawn Saturday. After a frosty cold and clear start, Saturday will be filled with sunshine with highs around 50-55. Temps running below normal, but light winds in the sunshine will make for a very nice afternoon.
With a weak ridge of high pressure still in place, just enough sinking air remains in place so by the afternoon, this deck of clouds will begin to thin inland giving way to increasing sunshine inland where high temps could climb into the Lwr 70’s…especially in western New England who will see the most sun. Clouds will hold longer on the coast, but eventually the sun will emerge this afternoon. Light east winds will keep it cooler at the coast again in the Lwr-mid 60’s. Cape Cod and the Islands will have a mostly cloudy day with the risk of being clipped with some light showers from the midday through afternoon.
