    The air has completely changed across New England from yesterday, as a northeast wind is sweeping across the region, carrying cool and dry air from Canada.

    The same feed of southern moisture that contributed to Tuesday’s thunderstorms hasn’t totally departed, which is why high-altitude clouds continue to obscure the sun.

    The southern stream of moisture is sending small storm centers rippling along yesterday’s severe weather producing cold front, now situated over the waters south of New England, and blossoms of rain mostly miss but will graze southern New England later Wednesday evening and overnight, bringing some light showers to Connecticut, Rhode Island, and southeast Massachusetts.

    Most of this moisture retreats again Thursday, allowing for no more than an isolated shower in southern New England with a light and variable wind that will allow temperatures to rise into the 70s for most.

    Friday brings the return of an onshore wind, meaning another cool day with lots of clouds and showers approaching from the south, eventually giving way to a cool rain Saturday.

    If all goes as planned, Sunday sees only scattered showers, meaning some breaks of sun and highs rising into the 70s. Some changeable temperatures lay ahead next week, but generally, we should run warmer than normal for the latter half of the exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
