Beautiful Weather Welcomes Weekend

Even with all the storms in our wild weather month of October, we had a bunch of nice weekends.

Last weekend we had a nice Saturday before Sunday rain. This time we may have two dry days for most of New England. Power restoration continues in the areas hard-hit with the wind Thursday night. And rivers are starting to recede in northern Vermont were where we had some of the worst flooding since Irene.

Today we have a small high-pressure system responsible for a chilly start but plenty of sunshine should push the temperature from near freezing early this morning to about 50° this afternoon. The wind is near calm. The front it went through Friday is now well offshore but has a low pressure system developing on it today, and that may clip southeastern New England with a period of light to moderate rain in the middle the night tonight. Otherwise we’re going to be dry overnight with a low temperature again in the 30s, 40s where it rains a little bit.

Early clouds in eastern Massachusetts will pull out for sunshine tomorrow, but another front from the west will bring clouds in the Western New England, with a chance of a few rain or snow showers in the hills of Vermont. For most of us it’s a fine looking Sunday with more sun than clouds, high temperature in the low 50s.

Monday looks fine, a lot like today, with plenty of sunshine and a high temperature near 50° and little wind.

Election day Tuesday will feature increasing clouds with a chance of a shower late in the day, the wind will come around from the south little bit, warming us back to the 50s to near 60°.

The forecast gets more challenging after Tuesday, much colder air is going to be aimed at New England and we may have a wave of low pressure that could bring some mixed rain and snow before the weekend. Next weekend should feature the coldest weather since last year with a hard freeze for most of New England, if not a little snow mixed in too.
