Pumpkin spice latte or apple cider donuts? What, too soon? While the pumpkin patches and apple orchards still have a few weeks to go before their season gets in full swing, we do have a taste of Fall outside this morning. Lows in many of the burbs bottomed off in the 40s and lower 50s while Boston hung closer to 60. You could argue for the light jacket or sweatshirt to head out the door this am, if you can find where you stuffed it away in the closest.

The Fall feel to the air won’t last long as we’re in for a solid afternoon with tons of sunshine and temperatures rebounding back to near 80.  It’ll be comfy again tonight, just about 5 degrees warmer than last night.  That’s some good sleeping weather right there.

As high pressure slides off to the east of us, and winds turn back to the southwest, we’ll watch temperatures warm right back up into the mid 80s to near 90 degrees starting tomorrow. While the warmth returns quickly, the humidity lags a bit as the muggies don’t show back up until late Thursday and Friday. As a front approaches and crosses New England Thursday night/Friday, I can’t rule out an isolated shower or thunderstorm, but much of the support for showers and storms misses us to the northwest.  Behind the front, we’ll lose several degrees for the weekend with lowering humidity and more nice beach/golf/bbq weather settling on in as highs range from the upper 70s at the coast to mid 80s inalnd.

Meantime, in the tropics, it’s becoming more active as Tropical Storm Gaston has formed and Tropical Depression Fiona is still stirring around. Neither one appears to be much of a threat to land at this point, however, the tropical wave to the east of the Lesser Antilles (circled below) needs to be watched as it likely becomes the next named storm, Hermine, as it moves north of Puerto Rico later the week and approaches the Bahamas by the weekend.

Enjoy the nice weather!
