Umbrellas to Sunglasses This Weekend

Rain continues this afternoon and will be moderate  at times. Expect a strong gusty wind to peak early afternoon with gusts 30 to 45 mph as a low pressure area strengthens offshore and pulls away slowly into the Gulf of Maine. The National Weather Service has issued a WIND ADVISORY for Newport and Washington Counties as well as Bristol County to Cape Cod through 7 pm.  The storm departs after midnight and by Saturday morning as a northwest wind dries us out, we’ll see developing sunshine. High pressure builds in on Sunday with full sunshine and dry weather. This stays with us through mid-week. The next storm system will push in Thursday and Friday. At this point, it could be rain or snow for southern New England. Stay tuned!
