StormTeam Outlook: Tuesday, October 21
Benjamin Dery, Meteorologist
A Seasonal Day
It may feel cool outside, but the average daytime high for today is only 50°. Eventually, we're going to have to start getting used to it. Today, however, will probably be the coolest day of the week as 60s are back in the forecast by Friday.
An onshore breeze keeps shoreline communities in the 40s much of the day topping out near 50, mid 50s inland. A cloudy start leads to slow clearing through the morning hours. The clouds may linger a bit longer up the North Shore. The afternoon sunshine should feel nice despite the cool temps.
More sun is expected Wednesday along with warmer temperatures as winds turn more southerly. Rain showers move in after dark tomorrow, tapering before noon Thursday. Friday and Saturday bring the nicest weather of the week with highs back in the low 60s. Our next chance for rain is Sunday afternoon.
Have a great day!
