Weather Now: A Few Showers Today, Sunny Saturday


It’s not a washout today, but we’ll be dodging the occasional light shower through the day. 

Temperatures will continue to climb through the evening ahead of an approaching cold front.  That front will slide across southern New England overnight bringing an end to the showers by dawn on Saturday.  

A 50/50 weekend is on the way–the first half is beautiful, the second half, not so much.  Mom’s get out and enjoy Saturday.  It looks beautiful! 

Skies will quickly clear Saturday morning setting the stage for a beautiful day.  It will be warm and dry with northwest winds 5-10mph and gusts to 20mph.  That “land breeze” will mean even coastal communities will enjoy a day well into the 60s. 

Mother’s Day will bring big changes.  It will be cloudy and cooler with an easterly wind keeping temperatures in the 50s.  An area of low pressure passing off-shore will threaten to bring showers–or even a widespread chilly rain–into southern New England. 

The question is how far north does the rain get?  Some of our computer models still keep most of the rain off-shore. However, other models bring the shield of rain all the way into cental New England.  Bottom line–the day looks cool and unsettled at times. A theme that continues through much of next week. 

TONIGHT:  Scattered showers, areas of fog… milder with temperatures in the 60s during the evening and then dropping into the low and mid 50s late at night. 

SATURDAY:  Nice day! Mostly sunny, much milder and pleasant.  Highs 65-70 inland and at the coast with a breezy northwest winds 10-15mph and gusts to 20mph. 

SATURDAY NIGHT:  Dry with increasing clouds.  A chance of light showers near dawn.  Temperatures dropping from the 60s early evening to the mid 40s by dawn. 

SUNDAY (MOTHER’S DAY):  Much cooler. Cloudy with showers…. rain chances are highest near the coast.  Highs in the 50s.
