Our recent shot of seasonable air continues today, but a returning mild spell will be heralded in by increasing clouds heading into the weekend.
For now, our frosty start is giving way to highs around 60 degrees beneath sunshine... though a developing southeast wind will gradually introduce more moisture to our atmosphere, allowing clouds to bloom late in the day.
Overnight Friday night, temperatures will be milder and frost-free as clouds fill in and will — for the most part — stay for the day Saturday.
More humid air approaching the South Coast of New England Saturday morning will result in an expanding area of fog in far Southern New England Saturday, further fortifying the stubborn deck of clouds for all of us with a few sprinkles and light showers falling from time to time as temperatures very slowly nudge toward 70.
More clouds and some pockets of fog and drizzle Saturday night may be accompanied by a few showers pre-dawn Sunday as a final push of more substantial warmth arrives, delivering a strengthening southwest wind with gusts to 40 mph Sunday, breaking out some sun and boosting high temperatures to 80 degrees for some of us.
Warmth will be short-lived this time around, with a cold front crossing Sunday evening and night, delivering a slug of fall air with more staying power next week — from Monday all the way through the week — but with little moisture, mostly dry conditions should prevail for the vast majority of us next week in the exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day.
