    (Published Friday, Oct. 6, 2017)

    For our Friday, we start off with a few sprinkles in far southern New England, but these subside by the time we reach the morning commute, most of the day is dry and slightly cooler than Thursday with highs into the 70s under mostly cloudy skies.

    Saturday we start off with some patchy fog in spots and we could see a few showers that slide in from Upstate New York into northwestern New England by midday, otherwise, mostly cloudy and highs into the 70s.

    Sunday, a warm front slides in early on, bringing an uptick in the humidity and the potential for some scattered rain. More rain on the way as another warm front moves in from the southwest for Columbus Day Monday in southern New England, but this is still the boundary between the warm, humid air and the mild air to the north that sparks up these showers along this boundary.

    Tropical Storm Nate skimming the coast of Nicaragua and Honduras is likely continuing to move northwest into the Gulf of Mexico, strengthen by Saturday and could make landfall along the Gulf Coast states by Sunday as a low end Cat. 1 Hurricane. The path of uncertainty has includes New Orleans, Alabama & Mississippi Gulf Coastline, as well as extreme western Florida panhandle. We’ll know a little more about Nate’s path once it skims the Yucatan Peninsula and then makes its way into the Gulf.

    The remnants of Nate could bring some moisture into western and southern New England by early next week. Stay tuned for the latest on the tropics and your exclusive 10-day forecast on the air, online and on the go with our NBC Boston / NECN app.
