PM Update: Chilly, more November-like air arrives

A strong fall cold front has ushered in blustery air more characteristic of the latter half of the month. Late morning high temperatures near 60 are falling through the 40s as rain showers slowly move through and away from the region. Skies will gradually clear tonight, but despite the return of the sun Friday, it promises to be the coldest day since last Saturday.

Through Tonight: Showers mainly along and east of I-95 gradually end by around 7 p.m. Then clearing works through the region from west to east. It’s a bit breezy (winds from the northwest at 10-15 mph), and cold, with lows in the low 30s in the colder suburbs to the upper 30s downtown.

Friday (Veteran’s Day): Skies are sunny, but it’s windy and not so mild. Morning wind chills may be as cold as the 20s in the colder suburbs. Highs struggle to climb through the 40s into the low-to-mid 50s. Winds are from the west at 15-20 mph, with some higher gusts.

Tropical storm Sean: A tropical storm warning is in effect for Bermuda as Sean is forecast to pass close enough to produce low-end tropical storm force winds (sustained just over 39 mph) tonight into Friday. Its peak winds (near the center, to pass west of Bermuda) are near 65 mph but weakening is forecast tomorrow before it gets absorbed by a cold front. Related: Bermuda Public Forecast
