    We're expecting a mostly sunny day on Friday with highs in the low to mid 70s south and mid to upper 60s north, but a disturbance traversing across New England will trigger a few showers during the day, but not nearly as widespread as the last few days. Cooler temperatures move in for the start of the weekend on Saturday as high pressure noses into the region from the Great Lakes. Afternoon showers cannot be ruled out - still not a washout by any means. Highs reach into the upper 60s across the south and near 60 degrees across the North Country. High pressure gains full control on Sunday, bringing continued cool and dry weather across New England.

    Temperatures will remain in the mid to upper 60s across the region, about 5 to 10 degrees below normal for the beginning of September. Looking ahead to next week, temperatures moderate into the mid to upper 70s by Monday with high pressure remaining in control.

    All eyes turn towards Hurricane Irma Tuesday and Wednesday as the powerful cyclone brings tropical rains and damaging winds to portions of Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas. Right now, it’s looking like we will likely see some of the remnants from the storm later next week in the form of some rain. Not expecting any significant impacts across New England since the hurricane will be in a weakening and transitional state as it moves north and loses its tropical characteristics.

    Hurricane Jose continues to strengthen out in the open ocean for now as a Cat. 3, nearly following the same path as Hurricane Irma, with Hurricane Watches already in effect for Barbuda and Antigua, both islands already heavily damaged by Irma, now could be clipped by a second hurricane by Sunday before Jose peels northward away from the Caribbean. More details are on your exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-Day Forecast on NBC Boston and necn.
