.DISCUSSION...  

A backdoor cold front moves south from Maine late tonight followed 
by much cooler northeast winds Sunday. A weak wave of low pressure 
tracks south of New England, with its rain shield overspreading 
MA/CT/RI Sunday afternoon and night. A light rainfall is expected. 

Minimum relative humidities Sunday will range from 60 to 70 percent 
inland to 75 to 85 percent along the coast including Cape Cod and 
the Islands.

OUTLOOK...Monday through Friday... 

High pressure over Quebec combined with a series of weak lows 
passing south of New England, will result in periods of light rain 
and cool temperatures much of next week. Not a washout as there will 
be periods of dry weather.
