Continued Warm; Renegade Shower

Skies will be mostly sunny again today with more unseasonably warm temperatures. A lonely shower or thundershower could pop-up during the heat of the afternoon, but that will be about it. Friday is much the same as we ring-in fall officially at 4:02PM EDT. Weekend weather will have a continuation of above-normal temperatures along with mostly clear skies.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure will continue to be the main weather factor for the next several days. It’s weak enough today and Friday that we might just have an renegade shower or thundershower during the heat of the afternoon, but those will be quite isolated in nature.

High pressure gets bolstered over the weekend and early next week over our area, pretty much nixing rain chances and keeping us in an unseasonably warm weather pattern. A cold front will approach us after the end of this forecast cycle.

Offshore, Tropical Storm Jose is gradually spinning down well to the southeast of New England. Jose has done us a great favor, as the now infamous Hurricane Maria will be following the weakness left behind by Jose to keep it offshore. We think Maria will pass between Bermuda and Cape Hatteras early next week.
