After such an unseasonably warm day, we’re tracking a mild night ahead as the warmth sticks.
Overnight tonight, lows only slip only into the 50s -- great news for those still without power or heat from the storm earlier this week. A cold front will approach from the northwest as we look ahead to Friday, however the cold pocket of air behind this front will take it’s time to bring the cooler, fall-like weather until Saturday and Sunday.
As the cold front slides in, a line of showers will form along it, sliding that line from northwest to southeast. Showers develop early in northern New England, with showers sliding southward through the afternoon, but these will be short-lived sprinkles and could even fizzle before they make it to far southern New England. Highs Friday will be slightly warmer than today’s warmth with temperatures into the low 70s south, upper 60s north.
However, the warmth bounces out by the weekend. High pressure slides in for Saturday after the front as the cooler air sinks in, we’ll see quiet weather for most of the weekend before showers slide in from the Midwest by Sunday afternoon and evening. Both weekend days will feature highs into the 50s.
Next week brings another week filled with rollercoaster temperatures. This time as a warm front lifts in on Monday, highs will reach into the 60s Monday and drop into the 40s by midweek. Not only are we tracking a cool down next week, but also an unsettled weather pattern with rain Monday with another chance for rain for southern New England late Wednesday and Thursday with the possibility of mountain snow north. The extended forecast keeps highs temperatures near seasonable through the 10-day with highs into the low 50s to upper 40s through next weekend.
