Will the Remnants of Ida
Greet New England?
As you may have noticed, the above average temperatures from early this week have given way to more seasonable temperatures for New England. Highs today will be near 50°F (10°C) with some gusty east winds developing. The winds will result from a departing high pressure centered near Nova Scotia, along with a broad low pressure center located just off the Virginia coast.
The low pressure center, which is in fact the remnants of Tropical Storm Ida, will bring more moisture into New England by Friday night. Thanks to Ida, we will see rainy and windy weather beginning Friday night and lasting into Saturday night. By Sunday, skies should slowly clear through the day as the coastal low pressure continues to move away and weaken altogether. In its place, fair weather will dominate the forecast for early next week.
Tonight: Showers likely after midnight. Low 47°F (8°C). E wind 15–20 mph. Chance of rain: 70 percent.

Sunday: Rain ending. Cloudy with clearing by late afternoon. High 62°F (17°C).
Monday: Sunny. High 56°F (13°C).
