50/50 Weekend

A frontal zone will finally push eastward and sweep across the region over the next 24 hours, eradicating the cool onshore wind of the last couple of days. Unfortunately, the timing is such that a good chunk of our Saturday is going to be spent gray and damp.

While the frontal zone is currently lacking much in the way of moisture, showers will grow in coverage as the boundary presses eastward into our region tonight. As we get to Saturday morning, a notable band of rain will be marching eastward across Southern New England. This band of wet weather will move through our area during the first half of Saturday, with some embedded heavier/steadier elements of rain likely at times from mid-morning to midday. Moisture should gradually shift offshore during the early afternoon hours, with just a lingering sprinkle or shower expected thereafter. We should see some partial clearing later in the day.

Much nicer weather will push into the area for Sunday, with mostly sunny skies expected.
