The official Autumnal Equinox that’ll end summer and officially start Fall is on Wednesday, however, we’ll watch Fall-like weather work in before that as a cool front that moves through this morning ushers in, crisp, dry air behind it.
That front sweeps through this morning also has a few spotty showers and sprinkles. It’ll be just enough to wet the ground for some towns, but not enough to give the lawn or the garden a good soaking. In addition, not all towns pick up on a shower and the chance for a shower dramatically goes down after 10am (perhaps a spotty sprinkle/shower til noon on the Cape). Since we start the day on the mild side, it’ll be easy for highs today to still reach the mid to upper 70s across eastern Mass, with temps near 70 in the Worcester Hills. Humidity dramatically lowers this afternoon, and the breeze turns to the north and picks up for the afternoon. The big cool down is tonight, with many burbs falling to the lower 40s! Boston stays near 55.
Next week features a more seasonal pattern, and even below average temperatures along the coast with an onshore breeze. That means highs in the 60s to near 70 for most days, although Thursday will be warmer, especially away from the coast. I don’t see much rain in the forecast through the next 7-10 days, so if you’re trying to regrow some grass… you’ll have to water. We’ll watch a storm to our south closely mid-week, but as of now, most of the moisture looks to hold just off our coastline as high pressure appears strong enough to hold it south and eventually east of us.
Until then, enjoy the rest of the weekend and goooooooooo Pats!!!!!!!!!
