What to Know
- Fall weather will move into New England today with some rain showers expected across the region.
- Some snowflakes may be seen today in points north and west across New England.
- Sunday is the pick of the weekend but expect more cool temperatures mixed with lots of sun.
Today begins a new weather pattern for New England. Drier and cooler fall air for this weekend and beyond.
Starting with this morning, warmer jackets are needed with temperatures starting out in the 40s and even upper 30s in the hills, clouds have returned along with another, much weaker, cold front that is generating scattered showers today.
While the vast majority of us can expect a few rain showers, our air is chilly enough for snowflakes to fly in the higher terrain of Northern and Western New England. Behind the showers of summit flakes and lower elevation rain, drier air will send the showers sailing east later this afternoon, but limited sun and new, cool air will hold temperatures in the 50s.

Sunday should be a classic, brisk fall day, starting out frosty, but with plenty of sunshine and not much wind, with highs around 60. Fall temperatures – near normal for this time of the year – linger through most of the remainder of the 10-day forecast with disturbances sparking showers on Monday afternoon and night, then perhaps again Wednesday and Saturday of next week.
