Forecast discussion: We had cloudy weather over Providence for most of the day, with a few isolated showers passing through Rhode Island during the late afternoon. Through this evening, a warm front will bring showers and light to moderate rain. The rain will taper off to showers by the early afternoon, as the low moves off into Canada. We will see some sunshine during the late afternoon, but it will become breezy. This will keep temperatures from reaching 60 degrees.
High pressure will slowly build over New England on Sunday, giving us a gorgeous day. Winds will also be diminishing, as the high’s center sits right over the region. The high will slowly move into the Atlantic on Monday, giving us fair weather during the day. By Monday night, a low pressure system forming in the Gulf Coast will move into New England. We will see moderate rain on Tuesday, before the low moves offshore by Tuesday afternoon.
We may see a leftover shower early Wednesday morning, as some precipitation is expected behind the back of the low. By Wednesday afternoon, high pressure ridging will give us mostly sunny skies. There is the chance for more showers on Friday, as a weak cold front passes through New England. The showers will end by noon, with partial sunshine to end Friday evening. A little cooler air will come down from Canada on Wednesday and Thursday. Otherwise, temperatures will be slightly above average, with highs in the upper 50’s and lower 60’s. Overnight lows will be in the upper 30’s to lower 40’s.
