The feeling of summer time continues for our Sunday afternoon, but not as bright as yesterday. A week-long front with the moisture left over from the previous beta tropical storm is being sent to moisture across much of New England today.
Additionally, the high pressure of the well to the east is providing an ocean breeze to parts of southern and eastern New England. And a cold front extending to the west is also beginning to have some influence.
The net result is that there are more clouds than yesterday, which will keep temperatures a little cooler, especially in the 70s, but with some spots getting more sun it will hit 80 degrees.
The dew point has reached nearly 70 degrees on the south coast, causing another layer of fog that slowly fades across much of southern New England.
Godly Cape Cod and the islands had the least amount of fog this morning, but now the clouds are filling with the possibility of a downpour. In Foxboro the patriots host the Las Vegas Raiders under a mostly cloudy sky with the possibility of rain, 70s temperatures. The wind is mostly from the south at 10-15 miles per hour.
Showers and clouds will become more widespread during the night with another round of thick, patchy, low-temperature fog in the 1960s. We could remain in record low temperatures over the next few nights as we stay on the warmer side of the front.
The front, or multiple fronts to the west, will generate showers every day until mid-week. It may take until Thursday for the front to stand up. So this often means in the rain for several days, very difficult to predict how much and when. But it looks like the heaviest rain will likely come on Wednesday and Thursday as a low pressure wave builds up on the front and we are left with a tropical connection and possible thunderstorms.
At the front you cross on Thursday morning, we could have strong to potentially damaging gusts of wind. The odds favor cancellation and cooling ahead of next weekend, as seen in our first 10-day warning forecast.
