Cool Sunday, Downpours on Labor Day


Early sunshine on Sunday will slowly fade behind increasingly clouds, but overall its another nice day around New England. A cool breeze off the ocean will keep temperatures in the upper 60s to near 70 in many spots.

Clouds will thicken tonight, with lows in the 50s to near 60. Rain will move into parts of far Northern and Western New England, but many areas will stay dry.

Labor Day will be wet, with rounds of downpours and embedded storms, in the mountains of Northern and Western New England. Around Boston, and down towards the Cape and Islands, much of the day will end up being dry with breaks of sun. The downpours won’t arrive there until later in the day.

It will be a bit more humid with highs in the 70s.

Tuesday brings more sunshine and highs in the 70s to around 80, before we spike into the 80s on Wednesday. It will still be a bit muggy both days, and a cold front arriving on Wednesday will spark a few storms.

We cool down and turn comfortable Thursday into Friday.

Friday into Saturday brings a potential brush with Dorian, as it curves out to sea. It’s still too early to know specifics, but there is about a 30-40 percent chance of some rain in Southeastern Massachusetts.

A track farther away than currently anticipated would lower that rain risk, and a tracker closer would increase the rain risk for more of us.

Either way it looks like next weekend into the following week turns fall-like.
