From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

High pressure will be in control today as it slides through New England giving us a bright, sunny day. Despite the sunshine, temperatures will be fall-like with highs only in the 50s to near 60° this afternoon. Skies will remain mostly clear for most locations tonight except for a few clouds over northern areas after midnight. Temperatures won’t be quite as cold as what we’re seeing this morning but we’ll still likely see widespread low to mid-30s away from the coast for lows tonight with coastal and southern areas bottoming out in the upper 30s to near 40°.

 

Clouds will be on the increase Saturday as a cold front approaches from the west. The front may bring a few showers into far northern areas during the afternoon otherwise Saturday will be a dry day. The cold front will continue to push towards the state Sunday. A few widely scattered showers are possible throughout the day with the best chance for showers being over northwestern parts of the state, closer to the actual front. Otherwise expect variably cloudy skies Sunday and milder temperatures topping off in the upper 60s to mid-70s. The cold front is expected to cross the state Sunday night and Monday morning bringing us some scattered showers. Skies will then clear out during the afternoon with highs in the upper 50s to mid-60s.

 

 

Today: lots of sunshine. Cool with highs between 51°-59°. Northwest wind around 10 MPH.

 

Tonight: mostly clear, few clouds north. Frost/freeze conditions likely for areas especially away from the coast. Lows between 30°-40°. South wind 5-10 MPH.

 

Saturday: partly to mostly sunny during the morning then increasing clouds during the afternoon with an afternoon shower possible over northern areas. A bit milder with highs between 59°-65°. South/southwest wind 10-18 MPH.

 

Sunday: variably cloudy with scattered showers possible. Milder with highs in the upper 60s to mid-70s.

 

Monday: morning showers possible then clearing skies during the afternoon. Highs in the upper 50s to mid-60s.

 

Tuesday: partly sunny. Shower possible north. Highs in the mid-50s to mid-60s from north to south across the state.
