A cold front dropped southward through New England on Thursday and pushed across our area Thursday evening (giving us a round of showers and thunderstorms late in the day and through the evening hours), putting an end to our latest run of hot and humid weather.
Behind this front, high pressure is shifting eastward across Southern Canada and helping to push a wedge of more typical Fall-like air into the Northeast and New England.
Dew point values are falling through the 60s this morning and even drier air is located to our north…destined to move into our area over the course of the day today and remain in place throughout the upcoming weekend. The air will feel FAR more comfortable as compared to recent days.
In addition to the dry air, cooler temperatures are in store for the area for the next few days. The northerly and northeasterly flow of air around advancing high pressure is pushing seasonably chilly air into New England and will result in daytime high temperatures actually running a few degrees BELOW normal for a change this weekend. In fact, on Sunday, temperatures may not make 70F…which would be a far cry from our run of 80s and lower 90s of recent weeks.
