Tropical cyclone will bring heavy waves and rip currents to coast – NBC Boston
Northern New England, so badly hit by bad weather on Wednesday, has the best weather on Thursday.
High pressures in Canada pushed the storm-generating cold front towards the south coast of New England, where bad weather Thursday morning caused damage from Buzzards Bay to Cape Cod. Clouds and a few showers persist in the south, with a beautiful blue sky and low humidity in the north.
It is much cooler in the south on Thursday with an overland flow – 60 over the shore to 70 inland and north.
Overnight, high pressure noses moved towards New England, persisting in mostly dry conditions except for a light patchy drizzle that developed. Low clouds will be present, with temperatures dropping between the low and mid-1960s.
Clouds will persist until Friday, aside from a few flashes of sunshine, with the threat of a brief downpour. We are expecting an overall dry day, with highs reaching the 70s with a feeling of increased humidity in the air.
A coastal depression or tropical cyclone will pass east of the region on Saturday, bringing violent surf and tear currents to the coast. An improvement in cloud cover is expected, with scattered showers with peaks reaching the mid-1970s.
Sunday features a cold low front pass with partly sunny skies and high temperatures in the 70s, below 70s, above in the Connecticut River and Merrimack Valley, and 60 in northern Maine.
A pleasant period of dry and hot weather until next week is included in our 10-day early warning weather forecast.
