    Rest of Today (Friday): Pleasant and fair, chance late sprinkle. Highs in the 70s. Overnight Friday Night: Gradual clearing. Cool with lows into the 50s. Saturday: Mix of sun and clouds, chance late sprinkle. Highs near 70. Sunday: Sun & clouds. Highs 65-70. (Published Friday, Sept. 8, 2017)

    After a sunny start on Friday, a few pop up showers will develop this afternoon. These will be fairly isolated, and mostly focused over the hilly terrain. Highs will reach the 60s and 70s across New England with a cool breeze blowing.

    Overnight tonight any spot showers fade away and temperatures drop into the 40s and 50s. The cool, fall-like air will continue right into this weekend too.

    Highs both days will be primarily in the 60s during the afternoon, as that cool air works out of Canada.

    Like Friday, Saturday will feature early sunshine giving way to some bubbling fair weather afternoon clouds. A few spot showers or sprinkles are again possible as those clouds develop. Those will then melt away at night as we lose the heating of the day.

    A northeast wind on Sunday will ensure the cool air stays in place. We’ll watch to see if a few clouds work in on that ocean breeze, but in general we’d expect partly cloudy skies at this point.

    Early next week we rebound in the 70s in many spots, but we stay quiet. Mid-week will bring more clouds and a few spotty showers in association with what’s left of Hurricane Irma.

    That storm is still on track to heavily impact Florida as a major hurricane this weekend. Storm surge flooding near the coast and powerful wind gusts are the main hazards that the storm poses. After the storm moves up the length of Florida, it will slowly fizzle deeper through interior sections of the Southeast United States.
