Hopefully you enjoyed the extra hour of sleep, and don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour this morning! We’re waking up to a damp start, with many of us having nabbed a few hundredths of an inch of rain early this morning as a disturbance tracked through New England. Isolated locations grabbed around a tenth of an inch of rain, with a few t’storms having move through central Massachusetts before sunrise. These early morning showers will be the chief rain maker today.
We’ve been on a temperature roller coaster the last couple of mornings! This morning we’re sitting pretty with temperatures 10-20° warmer than yesterday morning! Our mild start doesn’t mean we’re off to the races when it comes to today’s high temperatures though. Highs today will be similar to yesterday, and many of us will actually stay a few degrees cooler in the low-50s.
For most of us, the main wet weather act for today has already pulled through. However, the coast and especially the Cape could see a few sprinkles off and on throughout the day today. A frontal system to our north pushes southeast as we make our way into your Sunday forecast, and an area of high pressure pushes into New England from our west. This will help to continue to shift our winds from the NW this morning to a predominantly northerly winds throughout your day. Our change in wind direction will also brew up some ocean effect clouds and showers along the coast, and Cape.
Winds kick up today, gusting up to 20-25 mph. Temperatures tonight will again be varied and cooler as we lose much of our cloud cover and winds die down. We’ll start out your workweek with temperatures below normal in the low-30s (even upper-20s for some). High pressure brings us dry and sunny weather for your Monday & Tuesday forecast. September-like weather returns Tuesday as Temperatures soar back into the low-60s, just in time to get out to the polls for Election Day! Our next frontal systems arrives Wednesday, bringing the chance for scattered showers and blustery conditions.
Have a great rest of your weekend!
