A beautiful late summer weekend is on the way for New England, starting today.
After a mixture of sun and clouds, with highs in the 70s and 80s, temperatures will slip into the 50s and 60s overnight.
Saturday and Sunday will both be gorgeous, and above average in terms of temperature. Highs will be in the 70s at the coast, but closer to 80 inland with ample sunshine.
Keep an eye out for continued high surf and rip currents at south facing beaches as swells from Florence keep working north.
There may be a few extra clouds over the mountains of Northern New England Sunday, with a sprinkle or two, but that will be very isolated.
We stay quiet and mild early next week, but we’ll be watching the remnants of Florence work up from the south.

Some rain associated with those remnants will arrive first in western New England late Monday into Tuesday. Then rounds of tropical rains will likely continue Tuesday into very early Wednesday as the rain moves east.

It will also be muggy during this time, so there will likely be some hefty totals.
The end of the week will gradually turn cooler and closer to average for this time of year.
