New England

Beautiful Weekend Ahead; Labor Day Storms Possible

Expect relatively warm and dry weather this weekend, but Labor Day looks a bit unsettled.

A cold front will traverse across New England today, bringing increased clouds and scattered showers to the region. It will be an otherwise nice, late-summer day with highs in the low to mid 80s south, mid to upper 70s in the North Country.

Overnight Friday, our cold front will be pushing offshore, ushering in drier and cooler air behind it. We expect a dry night with any residual rain showers diminishing after sunset. Low temperatures will bottom out in the upper 50s south, low to mid 50s to the north and upper 40s across the higher elevations of the Green and White Mountains. New England’s highest summit, Mount Washington, will dip into the upper 30s.

Canadian high pressure moving east out of the Great Lakes will shift overhead Saturday, kicking off a great start to the Labor Day weekend. High temperatures will reach into the upper 70s to near-80 degrees south and the upper 60s to mid 70s across the north. Wall-to-wall sunshine stretches across the region with low humidity levels and comfortable air. A few of the lower valleys across the North Country may develop isolated frost Saturday night into Sunday.

Sunday will be another nice day as high pressure shifts offshore. Clouds will be on the increase as the day progresses with dry conditions expected through the evening. Light rain moves in overnight ahead of an approaching warm front from the Mid-Atlantic.

High temperatures climb into the mid 70s across the south and upper 60s to low 70s across the north.

An unsettled Labor Day is on tap as a warm front brings increased rain chances, some of it heavy, with a few rumbles of thunder. Highs in the mid 70s across southern areas, upper 60s to near 70 degrees across the North Country.

Hurricane Dorian likely makes landfall during the day in Florida as a major hurricane.

A break in the action comes Tuesday as an area of mid-level high pressure slides into the region. Expecting a chance of showers but overall a decent day with partly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 70s to low 80s across most of the region.

A cold front approaches New England from the west on Wednesday, bringing increased threat of showers. Highs reach into the mid 80s south and upper 70s to 80 degrees across the north.

Looking ahead to the end of next week on the exclusive First Alert 10-Day Forecast, high pressure out of Quebec builds into New England with drier conditions expected.
