Forecast discussion: High pressure moving off the New England coastline will be replaced with a high pressure system over the northern Great Lakes. The high will influence us for Tuesday, as temperatures slowly moderate to near 70 in Providence on Tuesday.
However, we will be seeing an unsettled pattern by midweek, before we see some cooler weather for the weekend. On Wednesday morning, a weak area of low pressure offshore of North Carolina will move northward. It may bring some isolated showers Wednesday morning, before a weak cold front moving into the middle of the country brings more scattered showers early Thursday morning. The front will push through by Thursday afternoon, pushing the coastal low out to sea. A weak area of high pressure will move in early Friday morning, giving us dry weather into Saturday.
However, the high pressure system will help pull some cooler air from Canada down into New England where we will see high temperatures only in the lower to middle 60’s into Saturday. On Sunday, a weak cold front will pass through New England, and may provide us with some showers by the afternoon. Skies will clear by the evening, making for some nice weather next Monday. However, temperatures will be cooler, as highs try to make it into the lower 60’s during the daytime. The overnight lows will be colder, with lows only in the lower 40’s.
