DAYS 1-5 (OCTOBER 12-16)
The post-tropical version of Michael passes just south of New England today and has spread its rain shield across southern CT, RI, and southeastern MA where it will be for a few hours before heading out to sea along with the storm as dry air overtakes the region today. A quick-moving disturbance will bring cloudiness and the threat of a little rain to the region during the first half of Saturday before the remainder of the weekend is dry and cool. The remains of Pacific tropical cyclone Sergio will track through the Great Lakes and drag a cold front this way wit a shower risk Monday before more dry and cool air follows that. Forecast details…
