From Zack Green:
We are kicking off our first full week of Fall...and it's certainly feeling that way! High pressure is in command today and with that, and easterly wind will keep southern New England about 10° below seasonal averages. The wind may be gusty to a point under mostly cloudy skies in the afternoon.
Overnight, a swath of moisture starts to move north of Long Island and eventually makes it to RI after sunrise. The rainfall rates pick up near lunchtime and we'll continue with scattered showers for most of the afternoon. When all is said and done, those north of Providence will likely record over 1" of rain. Locations to the south won't see as much rain, but it will still be quite dreary. Temperatures spike on Wednesday as many near 80°. With that, there's a chance of an isolated tstorm. Wednesday's chances won't last long and we're drying up come Thursday and Friday.
Monday: Increasing clouds. Cool. High: 62
Tuesday: Shower return. Steady (and at times heavy) rain after lunchtime. High: 68
Wednesday: Lingering showers and chance of isolated tstorm. Humid. High: 79
Thursday: Mostly cloudy. High: 73
Friday: Mostly cloudy. High: 71
Saturday: Mostly sunny. Pick of week. High: 73
Sunday: Chance of showers. High: 70
