Signs of fall coming at us in all directions–I blogged about this a bit yesterday–and today is no different as the weather map has wound up storm across southern Canada this morning (rain with temps in the 30s just north of Lake Huron). This storm has a cold front attached to it, a front that popped numerous powerful thunderstorms last evening but also a front that has some chilly air behind it and this front is heading our way this afternoon.
Thankfully it’s running on empty and won’t be able to pop widespread rain/t-storms but it will produce a few isolated showers this afternoon across southern New England. Best chance of the showers will be the mid to late afternoon hours north of the MA Pike. Out ahead of this cold front it’s a return to summer with humidity & temps heading for the upper 70s late today. Skies average out partly sunny.
This front will charge through here this evening sending the shower threat & humidity out to sea and replace it with a chunk of crisp, cool air from Canada. You will feel fall in the air tomorrow morning with temps near 50 as well as a healthy breeze. It will turn out to be a fantastic fall day though with ample sunshine & seasonably cool temps.
As for the weekend, the easy day is Sunday. Most sunny skies & a crisp feel to the air–great for picking apples. Saturday is a bit tricky as a fast moving system heads for New England. As of now it looks to start sunny then clouds take over by midday with the threat of a few isolated showers after 3-4pm. By no means a washout but the risk of some late afternoon raindrops is with us.
Enjoy summer’s last hurrah!
