Spring & fall can come with some wild swings here in New England as the big seasons of summer & winter jostle for your time & attention. No different this week as the past two mornings have started in the 30s and then this afternoon & Wednesday afternoon will see temps flirt with 70. Sometimes we have to go through some weather as the thermometer twerks up & down. We have that today with a bunch of clouds that, at times, will block out the sun. Despite more clouds than Monday it’s a nice fall day.

No chill in the air tomorrow morning as we start Huump Daaay in the 50s under a partly sunny sky. Clouds thicken by afternoon and there will be the risk of a brief shower or sprinkle. Despite the clouds, afternoon temps are near 70. Those sprinkles are tied to a cool front that will charge through here tomorrow evening sending our September warmth out to sea by Thursday. It’s not cold on Thursday, rather just normal with daytime temps in the 50s. Halloween still looking pretty good. Bunch-o-clouds for Jack-o-lantern & company with afternoon temps in the low 50s and early evening temps in the upper 40s.

The weekend is dicey as the jet stream buckles in such a fashion that drags some early season arctic air into New England for both Saturday & Sunday. The tricky part of the forecast is a storm developing within this buckled jet stream. As of now, I think the storm is too far away for a direct hit on southern New England but the storm is likely to produce rain showers that will mix with & even change to snow showers Saturday afternoon. Grassy/elevated surfaces along & west of I-495 may get a coating. More on this as the week rolls on.
