Mild weekend with a chance of rain Sunday

A weak cold front will approach New England from the west and that means there will be a slight chance for a shower, perhaps even a thunderstorm in the late afternoon or evening. The precise track of these remnants will determine who sees the heaviest tropical rains early next week, but the potential for some heavier downpours exists for all of us on Monday into Monday night due to the influences from Nate's leftovers. Last week, the area considered drier than average doubled across the northeast with almost 90 percent of MA having drier-than-average conditions.

Sunday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 51.

Partly cloudy skies are forecast for Thursday night.

A warm front will be heading northward today, so it will keep clouds around through the morning along with a spot shower. Saturday will feature more clouds than sun. Tomorrow night will be unusually balmy for early October with lows in the mid to upper 60s.

Expect lows in the lower 70s, highs in the mid 80s, and rain coverage around 50%. He is forecast to become a hurricane as he moves into the south central Gulf of Mexico earlyl Saturday.

THURSDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy skies and cool temperatures will be around with a low of 57 degrees. A second cold front will be making its way east and the remnant rainfall from Nate should get pulled northward along the frontal boundary and head our way.
