When Average Is Perfect
Posted by Chris Lambert
Fall in New England can offer some of the best weather around, and this weekend will be a perfect example of that. By late September, we average the upper 60s for highs and low 50s for lows in Boston, and both today and tomorrow, we'll be close to that. Throw in the sunshine, and we'll call it a perfectly average weekend around here.
While we stay in the 60s along the coast and in the city thanks to an onshore breeze, it won't be quite as cool inland, with highs in the lower to middle 70s.
Colors are popping in central and northern New England for you leave peepers, and it'll be a fantastic up there as well.
The tricky part of the forecast rolls in Monday and Monday night as we watch an ocean storm to our southeast, try to back in toward New England. While it's not a slam dunk that we get hit, I do expect the storm gets close enough to throw in more clouds, and even some rain. The breeze picks up out of the northeast too, and will be gusty along the coast. The highest chance for a soaking rain will be over southeast Mass, especially the Cape/Islands. The lowest chance of rain will be inland, especially outside 495.
Morning clouds yield to sunshine by Tuesday afternoon as the dry weather pattern resumes. Not only dry, but also warm as temperatures take a run toward 80 degrees on Wednesday. Not exactly October-like, but I'm sure the complaint box will be empty.
Enjoy the weekend!
