The combination of high pressure to the east and low pressure to the
west brought record setting high temperatures to Southern New
England for this last day of the work week. With partly to mostly
sunny skies and a gusty southwest wind temperatures soared into the
upper 60s to low 70s for most of the region. The exception was cape
Cod and the Islands where a wind off the cooler ocean waters kept
high temperatures in the 50s.
tonight will see partly to mostly cloudy skies. Lows tonight will be
in the mid 40s to around 50 degrees across Southern New England.
A strong cold front will cross the region late Saturday afternoon
and night, bringing areas of rain and patchy fog. There will be a
low chance for isolated thunderstorms as the front passes late
Saturday. Near seasonable temperatures will return early next week.
