Saturday Afternoon Weather Discussion; Posted at 5:25 p.m.

Today, we dealt with more nice weather, as highs topped out in the middle 80s. A few more clouds have moved into the area this evening but there is no rain in the state. Tonight, skies will become clear, with lows in the upper 50s. On Sunday, expect the nice weather to continue, as we deal with more sun and a north breeze; highs will top out in the middle 80s. With relatively dry air in place and clear skies overnight, lows will dip into the middle and upper 50s again on Sunday night. Monday will be a copy of Sunday’s weather, with temperatures in the middle 80s.

Things begin to change on Tuesday, with a strong cold front approaching the area. We will see more clouds enter the picture, with the chance for some light showers. With limited moisture, don’t expect much in the way of rainfall. I have a 20% chance for showers Tuesday afternoon. Many neighborhoods will remain dry. Once the front moves through, cooler weather will be around on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, as highs top out in the upper 70s. On Wednesday, we will deal with a breezy northwest wind, which will make things feel a little more like fall. Skies will clear out Wednesday morning, with sunny skies around for Thursday and Friday. As winds go calm Wednesday and Thursday nights, expect low to get into the upper 40s. The weekend looks very nice, with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

Things have gotten interesting in the tropics. Hurricane Kyle is moving to the north at a very fast pace. There are hurricane watches and tropical storm warnings in place for much of the coastline of Maine. You certainly don’t see that everyday. This power-house storm will quickly make landfall late Sunday night along the northeastern coast of Maine as a weak hurricane. Our friends in the northeast certainly need to keep a close eye on Kyle. The center of it will be passing within 100 miles of Boston. There will be a lot of heavy rain and strong winds in that area until Monday evening, when the remnants of Kyle lift out of that area. Be sure to tune in tonight at 10 p.m. for the latest on Kyle and your extended forecast. Have a great day!
