DAYS 1-5 (OCTOBER 31 – NOVEMBER 4)
October comes to an end with a dry but chilly Halloween. We’ll see plenty of sun today but there will be a strip of clouds cutting across southeastern areas during the day which will start to increase by day’s end once again. This is due to air lifting over the frontal boundary that went by us as a cold front late Saturday then was the avenue for Sunday’s & Monday’s rainfall. But we have a well-timed break for today, including this evening’s trick-or-treat which will take place with dry weather, but temperatures from the lower 40s to upper 30s across the area. At least it will not be all that windy. Wednesday will be an unsettled day to welcome the month of November. Another wave of low pressure moves along the frontal boundary just to our southeast, passing far enough offshore to bring the steadiest rain to Cape Cod and the Islands, with this rain shield probably up about as far as the I-95 belt. With marginal temperatures / cold air, can’t rule out a mix with wet snow or sleet briefly in some areas, but no accumulation will occur. Additionally, an upper low moving across the region and a northeast wind can also combine for additional showers of mostly rain (maybe some mix) elsewhere in the region mainly during the morning through midday hours. Later Wednesday we dry out as the entire system pulls off to the east. Thursday and Friday will be fair and cool with high pressure building in. Saturday may start with lots of clouds as a warm front moves through, but this looks like a dry frontal passage, and would lead to a milder day with the return of sunshine, based on expecting timing.
TODAY: Sunshine, but limited at times South Coast to MA South Shore. Highs 47-54. Wind NW 5-15 MPH, diminishing.
TONIGHT: Clouds increase and thicken. Rain arrives overnight South Coast to MA South Shore, up to around I-90 / I-95 by dawn, may mix with wet snow and/or sleet in some locations. Lows 33-40. Wind N-NE up to 10 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Cloudy start with early-day rain most likely RI and southeastern MA, may briefly be mixed with wet snow and/or sleet. Lots of clouds linger thereafter with a few rain showers, some possibly mixed with snow/sleet. Highs 42-49. Wind NE-N 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Clearing. Lows 30-37. Wind N-NW 5-15 MPH.
THURSDAY: Sunny. Highs 46-53. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 28-35. Wind W under 10 MPH.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 48-55. Wind W up to 10 MPH.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Clouding up. Lows 38-45. Wind calm.
SATURDAY: Cloudy start, then sun returns. Highs 56-63. Wind SW up to 10 MPH.
DAYS 6-10 (NOVEMBER 5-9)
Cold front approaches November 5 with some clouds but continued mild weather, then cooler November 6 with no more than a passing rain shower. Stronger low pressure / frontal system November 7 with better rain chance. Dry, cooler to colder weather returns November 8 with windy conditions, then more tranquil but still chilly with fair weather November 9 as high pressure builds in.
DAYS 11-15 (NOVEMBER 10-14)
Leaning toward the greatest chance for unsettled weather during this middle portion of this period. Temperatures near to below normal.
