A disturbance aloft is pushing a weak cold front across New England today, resulting in a few showers from time to time - in Northern New England this afternoon and evening, an embedded thunderstorm can't be ruled out, but at no one time will New England be rainy - just a few showers between clouds, breaks of sun and building humidity that we'll feel as highs climb into the 70s.
Overnight tonight, humid air remains in place for Southern New England with areas of fog and variable clouds, with any early showers in Maine diminishing, but leaving pockets of early morning clouds from Cape Cod to Cape Ann through the Maine coast early Saturday morning.
For most of us, Saturday is a beautiful day - a bit humid in Eastern New England, but fair and around or over 80. There will be a few subtle features Saturday: an upper level disturbance that will produce some showers and thunder in Central and Eastern Maine, a light sea breeze that will keep coasts a bit cooler and the possibility of an isolated, late day sprinkle in Eastern Massachusetts on the edge of the seabreeze between Interstate 495 and the coastline.
Sunday brings thickening clouds and - after a dry morning - developing afternoon rain from west to east, filling in last for Cape Cod and Mid-Coast Maine.
Rain should fall heavily Sunday evening and night, wrapping up for most Monday morning with emerging sun and mild air, though some showers will probably linger in the North Country.
After scattered Tuesday thunder, midweek next week looks a bit cooler and dry ahead of a building afternoon thunderstorm chance heading into next weekend, at the end of our exclusive, Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
