We have got an absolutely fantastic stretch of weather on tap for the upcoming weekend.
Before we get to the nice weather, we’ve got some rain tonight as a cold front crosses the region. The rain will end from west to east tonight, and skies will start to clear out by daybreak. On Friday, we’ll have an upper-level disturbance moving through. So we’ll start off with sunshine, but clouds will develop, and a few pop-up showers are possible. We’ll clear out again Friday night as high pressure builds in. With clear skies and light winds, we’ll have radiational cooling, which could result in a rather cool night in some spots. Saturday will feature sunshine and mild temperatures. As the high slides offshore, we’ll warm up on Sunday, just in time for the Patriots season opener in Foxborough. Another cold front will move through on Monday with some clouds and a few showers. There is the chance that Monday may not be as nice as we’re currently forecasting it to be. Some of the newer model runs are going for a cloudy day with more rainfall and cooler temperatures. This is a shift from what they had been previously been showing, so we’re not going to jump on that bandwagon yet, but we’re keeping an eye on it.
