Weekend Outlook: October 16-19, 2020

After a good soaking a few days ago, we have more rain in our future.

Enjoy today’s weather, because things will be quite different tomorrow afternoon. Loop provided by the College of DuPage.

We’ve got a breezy and mild day in progress today, but changes are coming. Clouds will start to stream into the region tonight as a cold front approaches from the west. Showers will develop ahead of this front on Friday, making for a rather damp day. By late in the day, as the front moves into eastern New England, a wave of low pressure will ride along it from the south, bringing in some steadier and heavier rainfall at night. The models still disagree on how much rain we’ll actually get, but they all have come down significantly from the projected totals earlier this week of 2-3 inches, as expected. In fact, it wouldn’t be a surprise if parts of eastern Massachusetts receive less than 1 inch of rain from this system.

The front pushes offshore Saturday morning, bringing an end to the rain. We’ll start to clear out behind the front during the afternoon, but it will be breezy and cool. High pressure then builds in for Sunday into Monday with dry and seasonably cool conditions.

    We need the rain up this way. Water levels in lakes and ponds are still very low, and now they’re predicting a mild winter. Much as I like that for getting around, we need the snow for the water.
