SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE ON THE INCREASE FRIDAY INTO  
SATURDAY AS A COLD FRONT APPROACHES SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND FROM THE  
NORTHWEST. LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL IS POSSIBLE IN ANY SHOWER OR  
THUNDERSTORM. THE BEST CHANCE FOR SHOWERS ON FRIDAY IS INLAND AWAY  
FROM THE CAPE AND ISLANDS. BY SATURDAY ALL OF SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND  
HAS THE CHANCE FOR SHOWERS. TEMPERATURES TONIGHT AND FRIDAY NIGHT  
WILL BE WARM AND RANGE IN THE MID 60S TO LOW 70S. AFTERNOON HIGHS

THE COLD FRONT WILL MOVE THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT AND BE FOLLOWED BY  
COOLER WEATHER SUNDAY AND MONDAY AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN FROM THE  
NORTH. MARITIME AIR ESCORTED ON STIFF NORTHEAST WINDS ON SUNDAY AND

ACROSS THE CAPE AND ISLANDS. THE HIGH WILL RETREAT NORTHEAST FROM  
OUR REGION ON TUESDAY ENABLING WINDS TO BECOME SOUTHEASTERLY.
