A warm front to the north Friday morning may generate showers for the first part of the day, but otherwise, we start off with a mix of sun and clouds, with temperatures in the 50s and 60s.
As the warm front lifts north into Canada, winds increase from the south, and really ramp up. Expect gusts 40 to 50 mph in parts of Northern New England, with 30 to 40 mph gusts in Southern New England.
There may be a spot shower in Northern New England as well, but the vast majority of the day will be dry as milder air flows in. Expect highs in the 70s with a somewhat muggy feel to the air.
A cold front then approaches at night, triggering a few more showers or even a storm overnight. The front will gradually depart tomorrow, so skies will brighten with time.
Cooler Canadian air will flow in during the day, capping highs in the 60s north. We’ll be closer to 70 south.

Autumn officially begins at 9:54 p.m. Saturday, meaning daylight and nighttime hours are almost equal this weekend. Cool and crisp air remains in place both Sunday and Monday with highs still in the 60s.
Rain chances increase once we reach Tuesday of next week. Temperatures also look to pop back into the 70s at that time.
