    Rain Squalls and Wind to Tame as Day Progresses

    Today (Friday): Gusty wind with increasing sunshine. Temperatures falling into the 50s and 40s. Overnight Friday Night: Clear, chilly. Lows in the 30s. Saturday: Sun mixes with some PM coastal clouds. Highs around 50. Sunday: Sunny, crisp. Highs in the 50s. (Published Friday, Nov. 1, 2019)

    Heavy rain, wind, and even a thunderstorm with this powerful front is racing east and out to sea early Friday morning.

    We had many reports of wind gusting past 55 mph with many power outages. Rainfall, however, was not that significant in southeastern New England. Some spots west and north picked up more than 2 inches.

    The story for Friday, though, is that it will be bright and breezy. There still may be gusts past 40 mph for a few hours as colder and much drier air rushes in.

    Low pressure to our north is moving fairly quickly, allowing the high-pressure system to bring in the sunshine.

    High temperatures Friday already occurred, in the 60s and 70s before the sun came up. Now, most of us are in the 50s for the rest of the day.

    With a mostly clear sky Friday night, and the wind diminishing rapidly, we should have some radiation of cooling allowing a few spots to get down to freezing. Many of us will be in the 30s and 40s.

    High pressure should be right over us Saturday with plenty of sunshine. High temperature will be in the 40s to low 50s.

    Low pressure is developing over the ocean Saturday night and may clip southeastern New England with a few showers. Otherwise, it’s going to be clear and cold Saturday night with low in the 30s and 40s.

    Sunday, we have a front coming in from the west as well as a storm intensifying east of Cape Cod, but most of us should stay dry with a mixture of sun and clouds in a high temperature in the lower 50s. There may be a few mountain rain or snow showers, though.

    Another batch of cool air from Canada will come in on Monday with sunshine and a high close to 50 degrees.

    The next weather system from the Midwest approaches on election day Tuesday, with clouds returning and a chance of a shower too late in the day. High temperature for Election Day 55 to 60 degrees.

    Much colder air is going to come in for the second half of the week and next weekend. It’s too early to say, but there may be some more rain or snow in here before next weekend. Stay tuned to our First Alert 10-Day Forecast for the latest.
