As a cold front approaches, expect clouds to arrive through the night with temperatures falling into the mid 60s then holding steady.

That front may bring a few showers just before dawn (4-6AM), but most areas should stay dry.

There will be some extra clouds around in the morning, but expect to see more and more in the way of sun through the morning.

Skies will continue to clear through the day…we’ll have mainly sunny skies for the afternoon and evening.

So, what should the kids wear on the first day of school? Shorts and t’shirts should be okay….it’ll be mild in the morning and warm in the afternoon. Highs Monday will be in the mid 70s.

Hurricane Paulette will pass well to our southeast during the next several days, but it is expected to develop into a major hurricane. Large waves will propagate toward Southern New England the next 2 to 3 days.

Expect a rough surf of 5-8 feet. Stay off of rocks and jetties and be aware of dangerous rip currents at area beaches. Most beaches have no lifeguards this time of year. A High Surf Advisory has been posted for Rhode Island and Massachusetts shore lines.
