Warm soupy air over the area – which has resulted in an abundance of low clouds and fog trapped over the Cape and Islands during the last 24 to 36 hours – will be pushed eastward by a cold front today and swept offshore this afternoon and tonight.In the wake of the front, an early Fall-like air mass will take up residence over the Northeast and New England in the days ahead.
Expect dew point values to hold steady in the lower 70s this morning as southwest winds persist over the area ahead of the front. As we move into the midday and early afternoon hours, the frontal zone, which is pressing eastward across Southern New England early this morning, will cross our neck of the woods and drier air will begin to seep into the area. Dew point values will gradually fall out of the 70s and into the upper 60s early this afternoon…continuing to fall as we push through the afternoon and into the evening.
By tonight, dew point values will be falling into the 50s and we can expect this dry, comfortable air to remain in place throughout the remainder of the work week and into the upcoming weekend (and likely several days beyond).
