In a very active weather pattern across North America, New England will get a quiet day or two to enjoy some nice, seasonable weather with peak foliage spreading into southern New England.
Get ready for a few frosty spots Thursday morning, with some patchy fog burning off quickly, to a mostly sunny day with a high temperature well into the 60s in southern New England. Clouds will increase across northern most areas with the chance of a shower toward sunset. High temperature will be in the 50s in the hills.
High pressure to the south is generating a breeze from the southwest 15 to 25 mph.
Clouds will increase Thursday night as a front enters northern New England. Temperatures will fall into the 40s and 50s, but we should be mostly dry.
That front is over New England Friday. It is a boundary between some pretty cold air building in Canada and the central United States, with warmer air across the southeastern United States. Waves of low pressure along this front are actually bringing snow to parts of New Mexico and Texas Thursday, but we should be dry for the most part into Saturday.
Temperatures Friday will be in the 50s north, low 60s south. Saturday, we are mostly in the 50s and some 40s north. We should have more sunshine than clouds through Saturday afternoon.
Our latest thinking, on this moving target of a weekend forecast, is that low pressure will drive through Pennsylvania into western New York Sunday, resulting in rain developing especially in southern and western New England.
The track of this low-pressure system is still in question, but we may end up with a steady chilly rain later Sunday.
The early call in the Patriots game is rain and temperatures in the lower 50s.
Weather systems seem to be coming to the east coast and slowing down lately, so we may have lingering wet weather into the beginning of next week. Then, we still have to deal with the same old problem: are we going to get wet, turn warmer with brighter skies or turn colder with rain possibly changing to snow in higher elevations in the middle of the second half of next week, including Halloween?
Right now, we’re leaning in between. There will be a chance of rain every 36 hours or so and temperatures remaining seasonable, mostly in the 50s, as seen here in our First Alert 10-Day Forecast.
