We're tracking our next coastal storm for Wednesday night into Thursday. Before that, we have some great fall weather upon us.
Monday night, the clouds erode away across southern New England. A few showers pass through northern New England as a low pressure system moves through Canada. Overnight lows dip into the 30s and 40s north, to the 50s farther south. Tuesday will be another lovely day with full sunshine thanks to high pressure and highs around 60 degrees.
Wednesday morning and afternoon will be dry with temps reaching around 60 before the coastal low takes shape. We have a low pressure system crossing the Great Lakes from the Pacific Northwest and a coastal low that develops to our south, near the mid-Atlantic coast. That is our storm that will track northeastward Wednesday night and head into the Gulf of Maine by Thursday afternoon. The forecast models are still in disagreement on where the low will track. If the center passes right over New England, then we will have more damaging winds and the heavy rain will be more west. If the low passes farther offshore, then we can expect the wind gusts to be a tad lower, and the heavy rain will be more east over Boston. We will plan on windswept rain across New England either way.
This storm is moving much faster than the one last week, so we're not looking at day after day of rain and wind or coastal issues. Speaking of the coast, we aren't looking at coastal flooding yet, but more concerned with the wind along the shoreline creating damage and possibly outages. We have declared a First Alert for Wednesday and Thursday, so stay tuned for further details!
High pressure settles in again for Friday through next weekend as our temps climb from the upper 50s Friday, to the mid 60s by Sunday. We may make a run at 70 by the start to next week.
