Cool, Gloomy Start With Showers Ahead of Warm Weekend

For this time of year there's a pretty strong storm slowly moving out Nova Scotia Friday morning. At the same time, a cold front is pushing south generating a few rain showers, and much cooler air.

It is jacket weather to start off our Friday with temperatures in the 30s and 40s north, and 50s to near 60 south. Areas of rain will shrink with slow emergence of sunshine.

Where the sun is out all day we warm to the 70s in northern New England, in the 60s south with the clouds blocking the sun much of the day.

High pressure from Canada takes over for the weekend. What is initially cool air, it rapidly turns warm as the wind comes around from the southwest for most of New England by Saturday afternoon.

There may be a subtle feature that causes an onshore breeze at some of the beaches in Massachusetts and Maine where we may be in the 70s, but for most of us we warm well into the 80s.

Low pressure tracking into Ontario Sunday will push warm to hot air for New England, with just a chance of a shower, and high temperature close to 90 degrees as the humidity builds late in the weekend.

Monday we are hot, to record hot, with a temperature of 90 degrees for most of us, and a few locations may heat past 95 degrees. There's also a front pressing in from southern Canada that may generate heavy thunderstorms especially in western and northern New England before the day is over.

We get onto the cooler side of the front on Tuesday, but the front may stall close enough that remnants from the Pacific hurricane named Bud may bring appreciable rain to southern New England. We could use that rain and will keep an eye on it.
