Pleasant Weekend Ahead, Heat Returns on Labor Day

Most of New England will stay rain-free through the holiday weekend

The much-advertised cooler and less humid air has arrived to New England from Canada and not only delivered Northern New England Friday morning low temperatures in the 30s, but also is holding daytime highs in the lower to middle 70s, regionwide.

Some bubbling clouds blotting out the sun at times are an indication of cooler air still building in and will deliver a few sprinkles Friday, but drier air represented by drastically dropping dew points will prohibit anything more intense from developing.

A couple of perfect nights for fire pits and campfires are coming up all across New England Friday, Saturday and likely Sunday nights, with daytime highs gradually rising from the 70s Saturday to 80s Sunday to nearly 90 degrees on Labor Day Monday.

Most of New England will stay rain-free through the holiday weekend, though a few showers are possible in Vermont Saturday morning with a passing disturbance, and southern and southwestern Connecticut see an increasing chance of showers Sunday, when warmer air makes its move back into the region.

A low chance of thunderstorms re-enters the forecast Monday afternoon and continues during the afternoons next week – particularly Tuesday and Thursday – as summer warmth continues until breaking down next weekend, at the end of our exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
