Sunshine galore continues for New England with high pressure – fair weather – firmly in control, but today as the wind shifts to blow from the southwest, we open the door to warmer air.
High temperatures will rise into the 80s both Tuesday and Wednesday, with nothing more than high-altitude clouds drifting into our sky off of a rapidly decaying remnant of Irma over the Tennessee River Valley.
By Thursday and Friday, some increasingly moist air will blow into New England – unimpressive and a poor representative of the mammoth storm from which it originated, but sufficient to team with an incoming cold front to produce some showers from late Wednesday night, off and on through Thursday and Friday – not rainy days, per se, but days with an increased propensity for showers.
Drier air will slowly filter in this weekend, meaning a low (but present) chance of showers Saturday, then a great Sunday. What about Hurricane Jose? The storm will do a loop over the Western Atlantic over the next five days, putting it off the Eastern Seaboard by early next week, but it’s too early to say where it’ll go from there. Either way, we have a chance of rain sometime next Monday night through Wednesday morning – either from moisture of Jose, or more likely, from the jet stream disturbance that would direct Jose back out to sea.
