    Mostly cloudy, remaining windy with highs in the lower 70s.

    (Published Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017)

    As we look ahead through this evening, Tropical Storm Jose is still bringing rain, cloud cover and gusty winds. A Wind Advisory is still in effect for the Boston-area, southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

    Expect gusts to continue to remain the same through Thursday with gusts nearing 50-60 miles per hour for Nantucket, 50 for the Cape and 30-40 miles per hour for Boston to Providence. Windy with gusts near 25-30 for Worcester and areas northwest away from the coast.

    Jose meanders eastward Thursday before turning back around Friday and becoming a remnant low as it travels west, back to the location it was spotted today, allowing for battering surf, rough seas through at least Friday night.

    Overnight, temperatures slip into the lower 60s south, 50s north with some areas of patchy fog.

    Thursday brings another windy day with rain still hugging the Cape and Islands. Skies try to brighten for most of western New England, as far east as Worcester by the late afternoon, otherwise remaining mostly cloudy.

    The first day of fall on Friday brings highs into the upper 60s with a slight chance for a passing shower.

    Saturday starts off cloudy and then, partly sunny by the late afternoon, highs into the lower 70s.

    Sunday and Monday brings a taste of summer back into the region with 80s away from the coast, upper 70s closest to the coast.

    We turn cooler, cloudy and a chance for rain Tuesday through Thursday of next week. This could be associated with the remnants of Hurricane Maria as she makes her way north parallel to the eastern seaboard.

    After Hurricane Maria made landfall on the southeastern side of Puerto Rico last night as a Category 4, she has been downgraded to a Category 2, but is expected to brush the eastern edge of the Turks and Caicos Islands as a Category 3 before heading due north by Saturday.

    We will continue to keep an eye on the latest on Maria as she could bring some showers to our area, by midweek next week.
