Cool weather continues on Thursday, with highs primarily in the 60s to near 70.
Morning clouds will give way to increasing breaks of sunshine during the day, but any peeks of sun will take longest to arrive in parts of Southeastern Massachusetts. That’s where a gusty northeast wind will keep a few showers around through lunch.
Winds turn to the south on Friday, 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 Friday night, triggering a few more showers or even a storm overnight.
The front will gradually depart on Saturday, 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., 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.
