A cold front pushed across Southern New England this morning in advance of an area of high pressure shifting through southeastern Canada. Behind the front, gusty northeast winds developed and “cold” air rushed into the region…setting us up for a brisk and chilly Monday featuring a mix of sun and clouds with temperatures generally holding steady around 60F. Northeast winds will remain active through the day, occasionally gusting as high as 30 to 35 mph through midday.
The combination of clouds moving in off the ocean at times and blocking the sun, temperatures only hovering around 60F and the busy onshore wind will certainly make for an October-like feel to the day.
Looking ahead to Tuesday, we’ll get another taste of autumnal weather as warm air tries to battle back into the region and results a period of chilly rain over New England.
Expect clouds to fill the sky Tuesday morning and for showers to spill into the area from the west during the midday hours. We can expect a steadier light rain to overspread the area Tuesday afternoon, with precipitation continuing off and on into Tuesday night. With warmer and more humid air eventually working its way back into the area Tuesday night, the cool misty light rain of Tuesday afternoon will become more showery and convective in nature Tuesday night with embedded downpours and maybe a thunderstorm possible.
Wet weather will remain in the forecast into the day on Wednesday as we await the arrival of a cold front Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
