A weak frontal boundary is draped over the area today, marking the dividing line between warm and humid air to the south and cooler and more comfortable conditions to the north.
This boundary is struggling to work through the area and is resulting in lots of clouds over Southern New England as well as some areas of wet weather here and there. With the front making little, if any, progress today we can expect gray skies to dominate (though we’ll likely see some holes in the overcast develop at times) our Wednesday and there could be a shower around. That said, the best odds for wet weather will certainly be at off-Cape locations.
This boundary will continue to hover near the area tonight and tomorrow, meaning somewhat similar weather conditions are anticipated for the next 24 hours or so.
The good news is, this front will eventually get forced out of the region as high pressure builds in and sets up shop over the Northeast toward the end of the week. That high pressure cell – which is helping to keep powerful Hurricane Florence away from New England – will remain over our region into early next week, providing us with several days of very nice weather beginning late in the work week and continuing right through the upcoming weekend.
