    After another foggy start to the day, we end our Thursday with some partial clearing of the skies with temperatures only slipping into the lower 50s. A stray shower cannot be ruled out into the pre-dawn hours of our Friday.

    These showers will not be widespread and tomorrow will not be a washout by any means. The line of showers break apart over New England & most will remain dry, with increasing sunshine by the afternoon and high temperatures into the upper 70s. Wind shifts from the south to southwest between 5 to 10 mph. 

    With high pressure off the coast to our south and a cold front approaching from Canada, we’ll see a surge of warmth from the southwest on Saturday with highs reaching into the lower 80s south, 70s to the north with a mix of sun and clouds for most of the day. However, as the front moves through, showers with some embedded thunderstorms are possible late Saturday afternoon, so if you have any outdoor plans on Saturday, just be weather aware. 

    Sunday will be much more seasonable for this time of year after the warmth from Saturday. Most areas will see a 20 degree difference on Sunday with highs only into the lower 60s, and perhaps slightly cooler along the coastline under fair skies. Another round of showers are expected for Monday into Tuesday with the heaviest rainfall likely into the overnight hours. 

    Wednesday still looks fair, and then more significant storm system may bring a batch of heavy rain for the middle and second half of next week.
