Frost on The Pumpkin

Tis the season… Cool Canadian air this time of year often brings in beautiful days, but can also provide chilly overnights, and last night was no exception. Once the breeze diminished, temps tumbled, dropping to near/below freezing this morning for many towns away from the coastline. In Boston, it is the coolest start to the day since May 16th, when we hit 42. Obviously no frost/freeze in the city, but for many areas away from the coast, a frost advisory or freeze warning does linger until 9am.

We bounce back nicely this afternoon with plenty of sunshine and temps heading for the low to mid 60s, warmest away from the coast. Winds won’t be nearly as gusty today, and turn onshore this afternoon. It won’t be quite as cold tonight either, with mid to upper 30s in the burbs to near 50 in Boston.

I do expect more clouds Thursday, especially in the morning with even a patch or two of drizzle. Late Thursday, after some afternoon sun, a cold front will provide a few isolated showers near day’s end or Thursday evening. Behind that front, it’s dry through the weekend with seasonable to just below seasonable temps. The wind is gusty Friday, but calms for Saturday and Sunday. The rain totals over the next 7 days are likely a tenth of an inch or less in the dry stretch ahead!
