Days crisp as apples ahead, with nary a sign of rain
High pressure near Canada will slowly drift into New England in the next few days, bringing mild days and cool nights. Dry weather will continue through Sunday, as will sunny skies, according to the National Weather Service.
“Other than a few possible showers on Sunday, sunny days and cool nights will continue into early next week,” said Charlie Foley, Weather Service meteorologist.
Early morning clouds will break up through the morning, bringing clear and sunny skies for the rest of today. Temperatures will crest around 66 degrees, though a sea breeze along the coast will drop temperatures a degree or two. Temperatures will drop to around 50 overnight, and skies will become mostly clear.
More cloud cover is expected Friday, though breaks of sunshine will occur. Temperatures will warm into the upper 60s through the day, and dry weather will persist.
The weekend will see slightly higher temperatures, with mostly sunny conditions. Saturday will see temperatures slightly above normal, around 71. Skies will be sunny, with no rain expected. Temperatures will drop into the mid-50s overnight, according to the Weather Service.
Sunday’s weather won’t differ much. Sunshine is likely through the day and temperatures will crest in the upper 60s.
An ocean storm will develop late in the weekend, but it is expected to track well offshore of Massachusetts. Still, some large ocean swells and precipitation could come to the Cape and islands late Sunday into Monday. Most of the state will see sunny skies and temperatures around 70 Monday, according to the Weather Service.
Foley said it’s been drier than average.
“Normally by this time we should have received 2.81 inches of rain for the month, but we have only had 2.21 inches,” Foley said. “That disparity looks like it’s going to increase for the foreseeable future.”Jasper can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @Jasper_Craven
