It’s a cool, crisp start but it’s the start of what will be a fantastic day! Your Friday will feature 100% of the possible sunshine along with pleasant, dry conditions. High temperatures will stay mainly in the 70s and with dew points in the 40s and lower 50s, it will feel a bit like early fall. It will be a cool but pleasant evening. If you are heading for a night out on the town tonight you may need to bring a long a light jacket as temps. cool quickly.
We can expect another comfortable day tomorrow before a warm front lifts through tomorrow evening. This front will bring some high clouds into western Mass tomorrow afternoon and evening, giving the sky a bit of a milky appearance. Highs tomorrow will reach near 80 with dew points staying in the 50s. It will be a fine day for all outdoor plans. Tomorrow will end up being the pick of the weekend.
Behind the front a southwesterly flow will take over, which will help bring a more “summer-like” feel into the area for both Sunday and Labor Day. Temperatures will reach well into the 80s along with dew point up into the 60s to lower 70s. With warmer, more humid conditions and a slow moving cold front creeping across New England we can expect a couple of showers and storms starting Sunday late in the day but most of Sunday will stay rain free. There will likely be some off and on showers and a storm or two around on Monday as well.
Cristobal: Continues to race away from the U.S. out into the open Atlantic! However, he will continue to cause high surf and dangerous rip currents along eastern New England beaches through today. A High Surf Advisory remains in effect for coastal Rhode Island and southeastern Mass. Be careful if you plan on going in the water. Remember, if you get caught in a rip current swim parallel to the shore line.
Have a great day!
