Warmer days return, but rain holds off for now — FIRST ALERT FORECAST

Cloudy conditions to follow Sunday night rain

Cloudy conditions to follow Sunday night rain

Isolated showers will be possible in our southernmost counties. It's even warmer as we head back to the lower 80s for many spots.

Our weekend will start dry but finish wet and stormy. Highs will be in the mid 70s. Highs will be in the 60s to near 70 degrees. Fall-like temperatures are not here to stick around.

High pressure will be the dominant weather feature in New England tomorrow and Friday and that means we'll enjoy some very nice weather. Plus, it will feel more like October for a change! High temperatures Saturday and Sunday will be in the upper 80s. Those are ideal conditions for good radiational cooling.

Tuesday: Expect a partly cloudy, warm and humid day with a 30% chance of scattered showers and storms and afternoon temperatures in the low to mid 80s. Highs will be in the mid to perhaps upper 60s. There's actually quite a discrepancy between model forecast temperatures - the NAM is cool, and the GFS is warm. The sky should be mainly clear. Morning lows temperatures in the 50s, quickly climb to the upper 70s. Morning lows will fall into the lower 50s. Humidity levels will be on the rise as well.

The latest picture will be two cold fronts in this First Alert forecast. Keep the umbrella handy throughout the day as showers will persist into tonight as well.

We'll take another step towards seasonable temperatures on Wednesday, as clockwise flow around an area of high pressure to our north over eastern Canada will set up a cooler easterly flow off the Atlantic Ocean. We still see plenty of cloud cover during the day.

This will end our record heat and lower the heat index values coming-up.

Friday afternoon a cold front slows and comes to a halt to our northwest, that will allow for more clouds by Friday night.
